150 Scriptures PROVING Pre-Tribulation RAPTURE
Jesus, Paul, John & Daniel on Rapture!
By Mike Taylor
1st Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
4:16 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:
4:17 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.
I will start with the witness of our Lord and Savior's apostle to the Gentiles and taught personally by revelation of Jesus Christ glorified. I had been reading in 1st and 2nd Thessalonians this weekend, and was just so swept away with Paul's testimony towards this Church that he founded in the name of Jesus. There is much controversy about what Paul was speaking of and it's timing. I will in this sermon address those controversies of factions of the religious community that read, what I feel, is not what Jesus, or Paul, John or Daniel was speaking of when it comes to these last days and the appearing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I get every now and then nay sayers to the concept of the church being removed out of the way, from receiving God's Divine Wrath upon a sinful world that is in full rebellion to His Law, and the only substitution for redemption of the breaking of God's Commandments, is in the blood sacrifice of His Only Son, Jesus Christ, which they reject.
Let us first go to 1st Thessalonians and read what Paul instructed this early church on what was coming, and was not only for their ears, but was written down for our admonition in these last days.
You can turn off Brother S.M. Lockridge to the left. But you can not turn off the Lord of Lords? I wonder? do you know him? LOL!
1st Corinthians 10:11
As is typical for Paul in his letters, he greets them in love in his opening lines to each of the brethren written to. But in reading on down we come to the first hint that Paul was speaking of a coming event that is yet to transpire. In verse 9, he begins his first nugget of a truth that I have always embraced:
1:9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
Paul is writing to the church members and Revelation had not even been written yet by John. He speaks of wrath?
You can find many examples of God's wrath to come, even starting in the Old Testament concerning what is coming:
Psalms 110 :4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
110:5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
110:6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
Paul speaks of it in Hebrews (I believe Paul is the unmentioned author) concerning the wrath of God,
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.
12:27 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.
12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
Of course, we can get a feel of God's wrath when we go to Revelation, but this book is not the only place that speaks of God's wrath, but we get the intensity and fierceness of the idea:
Revelation 4: 1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
6:15 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;
6:16 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:
Understand one thing my reader, the coming time of tribulation is divine judgment on a world devoid of love for one another, and committing untold sinful acts in complete rebellion to God's Law and authority, and who have whole-hardheartedly rejected the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the only payment for their sinful condition. Do we not understand that God will destroy up to 2/3 of all mankind in natural environmental catastrophes and what only be assigned extraordinary Divine occurrences not known to man in modern times and can only be attributed to Almighty God? Let us guesstimate the carnage that will be inflicted on this world, if all of us were still on this planet and none of us were removed. Right now we are approaching or have eclipsed the 7 billion mark of humanity on this planet. If we somehow envision the destruction of 2/3 of all mankind, that would be 4.69 billion people dying a horrible death leaving a little more than 2 billion people left. God warned that He will punish the inhabitants of the earth.
26:19 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.
26:20 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.
26:21 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. (A clear passage of divine intervention and removal of His people before He slays mankind on earth)
Oh, I hear the naysayers who say that the last trump in the opening verses are the same trump that the 7th angel blows in Revelation, but fail to understand that Paul was speaking of a last trump associated with the Feast of Trumpets. For a detailed summary of my position on this gross error by some churches today, go to my website and read "Confusion over End-time Events". In it the conflict over this trumpets will be explained.
Paul steps it up a bit in the next chapter of 1st Thessalonians chapter 5:
5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
5:3 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.
5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
5:8 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.
5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
How much more clear can Paul say it? Do you think that the coming of the Lord when He comes to rule on this planet for 1000 years will be proceeded in secret? Do you think He will come when they expect it not? Paul talks of sudden destruction, as woman in child labor will not escape the pain or the delivery of the baby. What fits this scenario, a sudden, without warning snatching away of children of light, to the horror of the children of darkness...OR would it be more plausible for them to be going about business as usual in the very run-up to the Glorious Appearing of Jesus Christ in the clouds of glory with great power (probably proceeded by a great appearance of fire and light, I hypothesize). With almost 5 billion people being consumed, dead bodies all around, animals eating the corpses of those slain, and the carnage of divine retribution, would it be business as usual? Let us examine the signs of His final appearing, shall we? Will it be business as usual? I think you know the answer!
Revelation 8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8:8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
8:9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
Reading on down the horror that is unleashed by this fourth angel till we get to the fifth angel:
9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
More pain and suffering/death when the sixth angel sounds his trumpet:
9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
9:14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
Then to the end of the chapter 9, descriptions of a most detailed description of what will befall rebellious mankind. Until, the seventh angel sounds his trumpet to unleash the final assault upon earth to turn them to repentance, but God knows that they will not.
Does this sound like Jesus coming back to this earth as a thief? Will not men know that they are under divine retribution? Will the world that is present be nearly extinguished of all life from what it was prior to the beginning of the opening of the 1st Seal, as found in Revelation 6:1? Will men be going about business as usual? Men's hearts will be failing them from fear, over what is coming upon the earth. Luke 21:26.
Sheer terror will reign supreme. Does this sound like business as usual? Naysayers, ask yourselves, does this sound like as in the time of day of Noah (Matthew 24:37), or does it sound like there is another time period prior to these events that addresses this more realistically and prophetically? Think on that a bit, as I return to Paul addressing the Thessalonians in 2nd Thessalonians.
After these verses, if we believe that Jesus will forcefully remove His bride according to Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.
And if we believe in any other teachings beside the Pre-Trib removal of the church through the Rapture, then let me drop something on you to think about. If during the Great Tribulation all will be required to take the mark of the beast and all who do will be damned according to Scripture, right?
If you refuse the mark, you will be killed either by ruling beast power, or the followers of this power. If the Post-Millennial view is correct, with all the environmental upheaval, the divine judgments, the loss of life of upward of 2/3 of the entire planet destroyed leaving either the damned or the saved, then when Jesus Christ breaks through the clouds and the saved are transformed into spirit beings and the ones with the mark of the beast are destroyed, my question is: Who will enter the Millennium in their mortal flesh?
You see the problem? There will be no one left alive, or in mortal flesh that has not been changed to spirit to even populate the Kingdom of God and produce human beings of flesh as expressed in your Bible. The only teaching that makes sense is the coming of the Lord for His church prior to the Tribulation, then the Second Advent of Jesus Christ to set up His Kingdom for a thousand years in that order. God through the Holy Spirit has called a remnant that will believe unto salvation in this age of the dispensation of the church. When Jesus comes back He will come for one final battle of swift judgment and this verse caught my eye and further proves that when He comes back and it opened this sermon:
Revelation 17:14 "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful."
Folks, that is: You and me of the dispensation of grace.
THE DAY OF THE LORD
Here the church at Thessalonica was troubled, as false prophets had entered into their midst and were preaching that the "Day of the Lord" had already happened. I call them "Ancient Preterist" who believed that all things had been fulfilled, and we were just waiting for Jesus to come back, except this church at Thessalonica understood the Day of the Lord, as judgment and wrath, not a sign of joy.
Paul admonished them:
2 Thessalonians 1:4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:
1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:
1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Paul re-teaches them what he had already told them concerning the coming "Day of the Lord".
Why were they fearful? They believed that they had missed the coming of the Lord for His Church and were found wanting and not fit to be removed from the earth and were waiting for the judgment from God, which would mean they missed the greatest event in all of man-kind, next the crucifixion and resurrection of their Lord and ours, Jesus the Messiah. Paul explains:
2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Paul explains that this MUST happen first before the Great Day of the Lord, and His judgment upon earth. John reveals in Revelation that this man is revealed by a number:
13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
This is what Paul spoke of, and what John through the Revelation of Jesus Christ shared with us. He spoke again of this man. Going back to Paul, as he continues in chapter 2 of 2nd Thessalonians,
2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
THE RUNNER UP TO THE ANTI-CHRIST
No where in history after this time period has a man stood in the temple and claimed to be a god. Only once in the history of the nation of Israel had a man stood in the temple and claimed to be a god, and it was many centuries before this verse was penned by Paul. What he is telling us, is that prophecy has duality, or will repeat itself in our time, and remember, these verses were written for us in modern end times, not just of the church Paul and John wrote them to. Who was that man who stood in the temple and a fore runner of the modern Abomination who causeth Desolation, as Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:15? His name was Antiochus Epiphanies, and he made a statue of Zeus, with his face and put it in the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Jerusalem and proclaimed all must worship it on pain of death. He also sacrificed pigs on the altars of God, which were considered unclean. So this man defiled the temple that led to the Maccabean War and the observance of Hanukkah, or cleansing of the temple. As Jesus prophesied, and as John and Paul revealed, it will happen again.
Let's look at verse 7 of this last passage. We, as watchmen on the wall, have hammered this home many, many times. Students, who is "only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way."? If you said the Holy Spirit, you receive an A+, as by interpretation in context, it is the only thing that is holding back Satan the devil, having full sway on this earth and attempting full destruction of mankind, along with receiving worship for himself.
2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 King James Version (KJV)
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way
For me, this is a strong argument that the church has been removed out of the way, BEFORE the man of perdition, whose name is 666, is revealed and stands in the temple of God, claiming to be god. Note that Jesus said that He would never leave us or forsake us, Hebrews 13:5, Matthew 28:20, hence He sent His Holy Spirit, as counselor, comforter, and guider of our walk with our Lord and Savior. If God's Holy Spirit is removed, based on the clear Word of our Lord, who cannot lie, we will be removed as well.
Daniel chapter 9, and the Abomination that Causeth Desolation
KJV Daniel 9,
9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
I read where a national organized religion that split apart in the 80s, called the World Wide Church of God, interpreted that passage not to be the Anti-Christ, but the Messiah. Still in existence are pocket organizations who still adhere to this argument, in their attempt to discredit the concept that there will actually be an Anti-Christ, or argue against a 7 year tribulation. They are proponents of post-tribulation second coming and are anticipating, no relishing the idea of being slain in the Tribulation. When I read that explanation, I was aghast. I went to a website of theirs and pulled this text:
"The most abused verse on the subject of the end times is Daniel 9:27, and it is a linchpin in the Pre-tribulation Rapture theory: 'Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.'Unlike the Protestants, we believe that "he" in this verse refers to Messiah, not Antichrist, for the main subject of this section is Messiah. Richard Ritenbaugh, Prophecy Watch.
True, the beginning of the passage deals with Jesus Christ, but He did not cease the sacrifices in the temple. It continue unabated until 70 AD when the Temple was leveled to the ground by Roman soldiers of Tiberius. Then they go onto to say that:
In Isaiah 28:15, we protestants and "a covenant with death," say that the Antichrist makes a peace treaty for one week—seven years—with the Jews. But this makes no sense! Why would the Beast "destroy the city [Jerusalem] and the sanctuary" (Daniel 9:26), and "then . . . confirm a covenant . . . for one week"
In this analogy, they deny the clear implication of Daniel's 70 week prophecy that was interrupted when Messiah was cut off in year 483 of the prophecy. That leaves the last 7 years that must be completed for Israel to be saved and receive their Messiah. Obviously, they don't understand the time-line of history, or duality of prophecy. I think anyone, including this minister, is blinded by their ideology of a failed organization that proposed that the second return of Jesus Christ would be in 1972, hence many members of this denomination sold all they had, took no social security, or started living in caves. I recall the cry of "flee in 73" as their mantra. Did it happen? No, much like Harold Camping's failed prophecy, false prophets are all within the camp of the religious and doomed to their predictions of when or how Jesus will return. Now is Mr. Ritenbaugh a false prophet? I am not singling him out, but it is a mindset of many post tribbers that this promise of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is suspect and that we all are all full of hogwash is rampant in this denomination and others just to be fair.
Others in this camp, propose that when Jesus comes in the clouds of heaven to receive His church, that we will be changed. Yes, but then they propose that we turn right around or make a sharp U-turn and come right back down to do battle with the enemies of God. They site Zechariah chapter 14, when Jesus' feet touch the Mount of Olives. I asked one minister I know, "are we going up to just saddle up?" coming with Jesus on horses, dressed in linen, white and clean as Revelation chapter 19 shows? He had no answer. And what about the Marriage Supper of the Lamb? He proposed it was poetic or an allegory....say what?
Let's examine scripturally what Daniel was referring to and that a vast majority of theologians that are scripturally sound embrace. I take this from an online website to organize the thought process of examining this passage, which I totally agree with:
"Here are the Sixty nine (7 + 62) "WEEKS" that have already Happened
Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be SEVEN WEEKS , and THREESCORE and TWO WEEKS: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (note the caps of Prince, and prince, my emphasis. Two different "princes". Prince of Glory, and prince of this world)
Here is the ONE "WEEK" that Remains
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for ONE WEEK : and in the MIDST of the WEEK he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Since God said he would deal with the Jews as a NATION for SEVENTY "WEEKS" and He promised to regather them nationally in the future in preparation for His Coming, then, God plans to deal with the NATION Israel in the future for ONE "WEEK" before He returns. To say that ONE WEEK of Daniel 9:27 has already happened (since God says He will regather Israel as a NATION) is to say there will be 71 WEEKS. To say that the week WILL NOT happen in the future is to say there are less than SEVENTY "WEEKS."
Since we already know (from the 69 weeks that HAVE happened) that a "WEEK" is SEVEN YEARS, then, God must have a future dealing with the NATION Israel for SEVEN years."
Spot on. Israel is the door to end time prophecy and Jerusalem is the key to that door. The Seventieth Week of Daniel's prophecy is future and deals with ISRAEL solely for their unbelief and to finish transgressions. Israel will embrace, finally, their Messiah and proclaim, "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord" Matthew 23:39. Our Father and our Lord and Savior will purify Israel as silver is refined in the fire. Malachi 3:2. When Jesus spoke in Matthew 24, concerning the Abomination that Causeth Desolation, His message was pointed straight at Israel. I envision that the only ones who will remain when Jesus returns for divine judgment and take possession of His creation by the sword of His mouth, by speaking only the Words. He will destroy all rebellion, which by my belief will be mostly Gentiles, because the only ones who will listen to the 144,000 Evangelist from the 12 tribes of Israel, will be of the nation of Israel proper, or those scattered over the earth. How many will be blinded to the truth and take the mark of the Beast is conjecture on my part, but is is prophesied that God will send them a lie.
2nd Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Note that if you are still here, then God will send you a strong delusion, A LIE, that you will believe because you want to. Your mind will have no protection, as the Holy Spirit is GONE, VANISHED, right along with His Church. Satan will have full sway, full unimpeded powers to deceive the human mind. Each of those left will embrace the false god of this world, known as the Anti-Christ, no matter what another religion might feed you. So as a watchman on the wall, I have given you witness of four of the major figures in your bible, John, Paul, Daniel, and the Master, Jesus our Messiah. I report, you decide. Understand, that I am not preaching to scare you, but to warn you. There is coming a day when salvation will be mostly for the Jewish people, as the Church Age has suddenly ended for you, and you have been caught flat footed. You were not ready, and Jesus has come, as He said He would. Won't you make yourself ready. Wanna know how? Email me after reading John 3:16 then all of the Gospel of John, just who this man Jesus was, and IS....the great I AM, that I AM...Jehovah God. Repent for today is the day of salvation.
The Rapture and the Timing of the Two Witnesses
By Paul Kocourek
More proof that the Rapture is Pre-Trib is hidden in the timing of the Two Witnesses. The evidence for this becomes clear as we investigate the question of when the Two Witnesses' ministry beginsâ€"during the first half of the Tribulation, or during the second.
Students of Bible prophecy from the dispensational viewpoint understand there is a Tribulation period of 7 years prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. During this time, God and Satan vie for the souls of men. Satan introduces his infamous 666 mark that all men must accept to worship him, or die by beheading. God, on the other hand, extends a last-minute opportunity for men to receive forgiveness for their sins through faith in Jesus Christ. One of the things taught in Revelation is that God uses Two Witnesses to preach Jesus Christ. The question before us is: When will the time of the Two Witnesses' ministry occur within the Trib period's 7 years? The answer to this question also helps demonstrate why the Rapture is Pre-Trib.
The 7-year Trib period comes from the prophecy of the 70 weeks in Daniel chapter 9, where each "week" is a time period of 7 years. The Tribulation period is the last, or 70th, "Week" of that prophecy. This prophetic week is divided into two halves, each 3Â½ years long. (Daniel 9:27) It needs further to be said that those years are not our familiar calendar years of 365Â¼ days each, but are actual Jewish lunar years of 360 days each, where each month is exactly 30 days each. That being said, each half of the Trib period is 1,260 days long, the same number of days as the ministry of the Two Witnesses:
"And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth." (Revelation 11:3)
We are further taught just who these Two Witnesses are:
"These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord." (Revelation 11:4)
This corresponds to an Old Testament prophecy given to Israel through an angel of the Lord in Zechariah chapter 4. First the prophet sees a vision in verses 3-4, and some verses later asks the angel to explain what he was seeing:
"And I answered the second time and said to him, 'What are the two olive branches which are beside the two golden pipes, which empty the golden oil from themselves?' So he answered me, saying, 'Do you not know what these are?' And I said, 'No, my lord.' Then he said, 'These are the two anointed ones who are standing by the Lord of the whole earth.'" (Zechariah 4:12-14)
The verse in Revelation 11:4 ties the two Scripture passages together, so that when the Tribulation period is underway, the descendants of Israel who see the Two Witnesses will understand from the book of Revelation that the Two Witnesses are the anointed ones Zechariah foretold would be coming.
Now concerning the number of 1,260 days, I do not believe the sameness of half the Trib period and the ministry time span of the Two Witnesses is a coincidence. Some students of Bible prophecy think the Two Witnesses' 1,260 days of ministry is aligned with the first half of the Trib period, while others believe it aligns with the second half. This latter view is primarily due to Revelation 11:3-13 (which is the entire story of the Two Witnesses) being found between Revelation 9:13-21, which describes the "second woe" (i.e., the sixth angel trumpet judgment), and Revelation 11:14-19, which describes the "third woe" (i.e., the seventh angel trumpet judgment).
However, some careful thought will show that the 1,260 days of the Two Witnesses' ministry cannot be located, time-wise, in the second half of the Trib period.
First, consider the nature of exactitude with God's numbers. When He says 1,260 days, He doesn't mean 1,261 days or 1,259 days. When dealing with these Tribulation time figures, we will find them expressed differently in Scripture, but all are exactly equivalent. There's "a time, times and half a time" (Daniel 7:25), which is repeated in Revelation 12:14 and also defined for us in Revelation 12:6:
"Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred sixty days." (Revelation 12:6)
"But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent." (Revelation 12:14)
From this we know "a time, times and half a time" = 1,260 days. Likewise, the time of the reign of the Antichrist is given in Daniel 7:25 as "a time, times and half a time," and is repeated in Revelation 13:5 as "42 months."
"He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times and half a time." (Daniel 7:25)
"There was given him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him." (Revelation 13:5)
By this we know that the Antichrist's reign in Revelation 13:5 (i.e., 42 months) is exactly 1,260 days, not a day more nor a day less. In Daniel 9:27, from which (as we have already seen) we derive the 7-year length of the Trib period, we find the Antichrist committing the Abomination of Desolation. The Abomination of Desolation is an act of sacrilege in which he enters the temple of God and puts a stop to Jewish worship sacrifices, and demands to be worshipped as God himself:
"Who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God." (2 Thessalonians 2:4)
We know from Daniel that this event occurs in the exact center of the Trib period's 7 years:
"...but in the middle of the week [i.e., 1 prophetic week = 7 Jewish lunar years] he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering, and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate..." (Daniel 9:27b)
The Abomination of Desolation makes the temple of God "desolate." Please carefully note that Antichrist will continue his reign until he is destroyed:
"...even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate." (Daniel 9:27c)
This can only mean that Antichrist, whom we have seen reigns for 42 months, is destroyed according to God's decree, at the 1,260th day of his reign, not one day more or less. This destruction of the Antichrist is revealed in Revelation chapter 19 at the Second Coming. There, the Antichrist and his associate in evil, the False Prophet, are dealt with in finality:
"...these two were thrown alive in the lake of fire..." (Revelation 19:20b)
Now, you might say, "Okay, so the Antichrist is destroyed after reigning exactly 1,260 days. So what's that got to do with the time of the ministry of the Two Witnesses?" I'm glad you asked. In Revelation 11, after revealing the effects and nature of the Two Witnesses' ministry, it records for us:
"When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them." (Revelation 11:7)
We are further told the Two Witnesses' bodies will lie in the streets of Jerusalem for "three and a half days." (Revelation 11:9b) Revelation goes on to say:
"But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them." (Revelation 11:11)
For argument's sake, let's assume the ministry of the Two Witnesses really is aligned with the second half of the Tribulation. Follow with me the following time sequence based on that assumption:
At the Tribulation period's midpoint, the Antichrist commits the Abomination of Desolation. (Daniel 9:27) That same day, the ministry of the Two Witnesses begins, and they minister for the ordained 1,260 days, which is also the length of the Antichrist's reign. Then, on the final day of the Antichrist's reign, he kills the Two Witnesses. But! Jesus comes back right then also and has the Antichrist and False Prophet thrown into the Lake of Fire. Despite this world-shaking event of the Second Coming, the world nonetheless watches the bodies of the Two Witnesses for 3Â½ more days, even while Jesus is judging the nations (Matthew 25:31-46) and setting up His kingdom. Still following that time sequence, after those 3Â½ extra days, the bodies rise to life again and there's a great earthquake. (Revelation 11:13) Then the third woe occurs (Revelation 11:14), meaning the next angel, the one with the seventh trumpet, blows his horn. (Revelation 11:15-19) And that's not even counting the seven Bowls of Wrath that additionally follow after the Seventh Trumpet.
All this happening 3Â½ days AFTER the Second Coming?
Does anybody besides me see a problem with this?
It is simply a fact that the seven Seals, seven Trumpets and seven Bowls all are completed BEFORE the Second Coming. The time of the Two Witnesses' ministry CANNOT be in the second half of the Trib period. Even if we allow that the Revelation passage of the Two Witnesses is isolated, time-wise, from the progression of the sixth and seventh Trumpets (which, in fact, it is), we still can't have the time of their ministry in the second half. The world rejoices and gloats over the death of these two men of God and gives gifts to one another in a satanic celebration during those 3Â½ days (Revelation 11:9-10), something that would have to be happening while Jesus has already returned to Earth. Does anyone seriously expect that Jesus, then returned to Earth in His power and glory as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, would ALLOW that? I don't think so!
May I suggest a simpler explanation that does not cause impossible conflicts like those shown above?
In Revelation 9, John is describing a time point in the progression of the 21 Judgments where those judgments are well past the middle point of the Trib's 7 years. In the next chapter John is told, "You must prophesy again concerning peoples and nations and tongues and kings." (Revelation 10:11b) This means that the "clock" of the Trib period is being reset back to the Trib period's beginning to describe what follows next.
John then describes in Revelation 11:1-2 the temple of God. This HAS to be in existence in the first half of the Trib period in order for the Antichrist to enter the temple to commit his Abomination of Desolation at the midpoint of the Trib. This is proof that the time sequence of Revelation 11:1-13 is in the first half, meaning both the temple and the Two Witnesses are present when the Trib starts. To me this also implies that the temple has to be already fully built when the Trib period starts, for the instruction in Revelation 11:1 says, "Then there was given me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, 'Get up and measure the temple of God and the altar, and those who worship in it.'" You can't hand a measuring rod to someone to measure something that isn't built yet. The instruction implies he is being ordered to measure a completed item, not something under construction.
As Revelation 11 moves along, John signals that the Revelation 10:11 "reset" (back to the beginning of the Trib period) has ended, and the countdown of the 21 Judgments has resumed. He does this by saying:
"The second woe is past; behold, the third woe is coming quickly." (Revelation 11:14)
When the first day of the 7-year Trib period (i.e., Daniel's 70th week, Daniel 9:27) begins, it is then that the Two Witnesses appear; their ministry begins on Day 1 of the Trib period, and ends on Day 1,260, when the Antichrist commits the Abomination of Desolation and goes out to murder them.
Now, when you see the impossibility of the time of the Two Witnesses' ministry being in the second half, thus requiring that it be in the first half, you can see the evidence for the Rapture showing clearly as Pre-Trib. Think about it for a moment. The Church of Jesus Christ is commanded to be Jesus' witnesses. (Acts 1:8) Why would God put into operation these two spectacular witnesses to bear witness of Jesus Christ, if the Church were still on Earth to do that job as it has for the past 2,000 years?
However, with the Pre-Trib Rapture happening, billions of people will suddenly have no one to tell them about Jesus. The Christians will all be gone. However, with the time of the Two Witnesses' ministry beginning on Day 1 of the Trib, people will be hearing about Jesus despite the disappearance of Christians in the Rapture. I believe it is the ministry of the Two Witnesses that brings to faith the 144,000 male Jews of Revelation 7:1-8. These Jewish men finally believe in Jesus, and realize that the time is short, and while the Two Witnesses minister to Israel, the 144,000 spread out over all the Gentile nations to share Jesus Christ. Someone has compared it to 144,000 Billy Grahams let loose on the world at once!
This, too, is an evidence that the Rapture is Pre-Trib. As said earlier, Jesus gave to His Church the job of being witnesses to Him. (Acts 1:8) Why would God now use two Jewish witnesses doing the miracles of Moses and Elijah, and 144,000 Jewish men to share the gospel, unless it were necessary because the Church is no longer on Earth to do the job?
The result of the ministry of the 144,000 is a great number of saved souls "...which no one can count out, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues..." (Revelation 7:9b) They cry out, "Salvation to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb." (Revelation 7:10b)
In conclusion, the understanding that makes the best sense is that the ministry of the Two Witnesses begins on Day 1 of the Tribulation period. They win the 144,000 to Christ, who then go out in the world to win uncountable numbers of souls. The Two Witnesses continue their own ministry in Israel, performing the miracles of Moses and Elijah (i.e., turning water to blood, etc.). (Revelation 11:5-6)
It is important to note that in doing the miracles of Moses and Elijah, the Two Witnesses represent the testimony of the two authorities acknowledged by the sons of Israel, the Law and the Prophets. When giving "The Golden Rule," Jesus referenced that same authority the people knew when He said, "In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets." (Matthew 7:12) When Jesus had taken Peter, James and John to the Mount of Transfiguration, they met Moses and Elijah, who epitomize the Law (Moses) and the Prophets (Elijah). (Luke 9:20) When Jesus rebuked the scoffing Pharisees, again He spoke of the Law and the Prophets. (Luke 16:14-16) Also, after His resurrection, Jesus appeared to two disciples on the road to Emmaus, and taught them about Himself out of the Law and the Prophets. (Luke 24:25-27)
During the Tribulation, the sons of Israel will be seeing, with their own eyes, the Two Witnesses performing the miracles of Moses and Elijah, and will be hearing, with their own ears, the testimony of those two authorities, representing the Law and the Prophets, preaching Jesus Christ.
At the end of their ministry, on Day 1,260, the Antichrist goes into the temple of God and commits the Abomination of Desolation. Then the words of Jesus become terribly clear:
"Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains." (Matthew 24:15-16)
The Antichrist slays the Two Witnesses, and the Trib period now begins its second half. The Antichrist then goes after God's people in a massive persecution that will permit no worship except to him. It says in Scripture of this time (i.e., the second half of the Trib):
"I kept looking, and that horn [i.e., Antichrist] was waging war with the saints and overpowering them." (Daniel 7:21)
"...and they will be given into his hand for a time, times and half a time." (Daniel 7:25b)
"There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him." (Revelation 13:5)
"It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him." (Revelation 13:7)
His reign is supreme during the second half. With the committing of the Abomination of Desolation, he proceeds forth to force people to submit to him, via the infamous 666 mark, or be beheaded. (Revelation 13:15; Revelation 20:4)
As a last thought, it is also this supreme reign of his during the second half that shows why all of the evangelism must take place in the Trib period's first half, both that of the Two Witnesses and that of the 144,000 Israelites. Therefore, the time of the Two Witnesses can be none other than during the first half of the Tribulation period, with the Rapture preceding it.
****First of all, note that these twenty-four elders who represent the Church are seen by the Apostle John in heaven, not on the earth, sitting on thrones, wearing crowns on their heads, and clothed in white raiment, all of which is proof that they have been resurrected, translated and rewarded. It is completely incongruous to conceive of a disembodied spirit crowned and rewarded apart from the resurrection and the rapture. We conclude therefore that the rapture has already taken place.
Secondly, note that in chapter five these elders watch with great interest as the Lamb of God takes the sealed book of divine judgment from the hand of the One who sits on the central throne. To close the chapter John sees them singing a song of their own redemption and adoring the Lamb as the One who alone has the right to hold the book.
Thirdly, note that all of these events take place before a single seal of the book of Judgment is broken, before a single trumpet of judgment is sounded and before a single bowl of divine wrath is poured out on the earth. Hence chronologically chapters four and five of Revelation take place before any of the terrible Judgments described in chapters six to nineteen are poured out on the earth. Logically this is imperative. Chapters four and five constitute an introductory vision to the events which are about to happen. Chapter four concerns the setting up of a special throne of judgment for the tribulation and chapter five describes the little book and its seven seals. The breaking of the first seal ushers in the first Judgment. Logically then the events of these two chapters must precede the great tribulation and its scenes of judgment because it is from the things here pictured that these Judgments proceed.
Now, regardless of what you do with chapters six through nineteen these arguments prove a pretribulational rapture. As McClain has so ably put it,
Now regardless of the chronological interpretation you may make of the Judgments of Revelation 6 to19; whether you adopt some recapitulation or overlapping scheme; shuffle the seals and trumpets and vials as you will; you cannot push chapters 4 and 5 into the picture which follows in chapters 6 to19. There is no judgment until the first seal is broken; the first seal is not broken until the Lamb receives the Sealed Book; the Lamb does not take the Book until the 24 are in heaven, sitting on thrones and with crowns on their heads. If the scene in heaven described in chapters 4 and 5 does not precede the Judgments of 6 to19, then no man can make any sense whatever out of the order of things in the last book of the Bible. And we may as well complain with Martin Luther, "Even if it were a blessed thing to believe what is in it, no man knows what that is."(18)
And so we have in this beautiful symbol a clear reference to the Church which has been raptured prior to the tribulation. Whereas we are certain that this treatise will not convince everyone of the truths which we have presented, may this paper serve as a source of blessing to those who love this truth. "Even so, come Lord Jesus."****

"Season of the Rapture"
"Rapture" ( taken away quickly) comes from the Latin Bible 'rapiemur' meaning in English 'rapture', not in the KJ version of Bible. Also the word "harpazo" is also in the original Greek version, penned by Paul of Tarsus, in which means "violently taken away" faster than a twinkle of an eye. 100th of a second! In the modern King James Bible the word 'Rapture' is changed to "caught up" in I Thessalonians. 4:17
"This is how people will feel after the 'rapture', they will call upon my name and I shall not hear them!"
from a loud audible thunderous voice. (1980) Also got a VISION OF THE RAPTURE, during the day!
For 32 years I have been plagued by this word. I studied this WORD "rapture" and now I give you my conclusion from an open mind.
It will be the most is wonderful event, that you will NOT want to miss! It has never been done before, to take away thousands of people,
vanish without dying! Sounds like nuts, but please hold on and give this information some time. It will flip your whig.
It will fill your lamp with Holy oil, while you read.
The "Rapture" the most Preposterous Belief in Biblical Christianity. This concept of The Rapture is the most controversial Biblical topic.
It is a wild idea, a strange idea but many thousands of believers know that it WILL HAPPEN. No one knows the time or the hour.
October 2013 are you kinding? The devil is trying hard so to take down as many people as he can. Don't let him take you.
He will turn brother against brother one more time. Once US, soon to be NATO Military/police/sheriff against the US citizens who own guns.
Their are 7 other Rapture events in the Bible.
1) Enoch was Raptured. (Gen 5:42, Heb 11:5)
Some Mayan legunds say that many Mayan natives dispappeared (raptured?) through a portal in a cave near one of their Holy sites.
Here comes the problem : Their are 3 theories of this Rapturous Event :
1) Pre Tribulation Rapture • 2) Mid Tribulation Rapture • 3) Post Tribulation Rapture
That is where the arguments are that divide the body of Christ. Not good. Some believers are taught that the Rapture is after the great tribulation, called the Post Trib believers. They believe you will have to suffer greatly and get beat up, lose everything you own, get shot at, run for your life, search hard for food & water, etc. Eventually hunted down and be martyred for your faith in Christ. if you do not take the mark of the beast on your wrist, they kill you at the FEMA camp. It is like Jesus telling us " Come, we are going to get married." after that , I will beat the living tar out of you and then we will have dinner". LOL It will NOT happen this way!
The Pre- Tribulation believers ( THE RIGHT ON, SMART BELIEVERS) group, very large concubine, will go and get married to Jesus's Kingdom, we get a flying chariot ride out of here! Right when the fire balls are coming down and Michael the Archangel blows his horn (shofar) The dead rise first, then those who are remaining will be caught up to be ever with the Lord. Your invited, you dance with joy, you see your new pad and then you go eat and be marry forever in the Lord's perfect Kingdom of real believe. And you live happily ever after and avoid all hell.
"Rapture" ( taken away quickly) comes from the Latin Bible 'rapiemur' meaning in English 'rapture', not in the KJ version of Bible. Also the word "harpazo" is also in the original Greek version, penned by Paul of Taurus, in which means "violently taken away" faster than a twinkle of an eye. 100th of a second! In the modern King James Bible the word 'Rapture' is changed to "caught up" in I Thessalonians. 4:17
It will happen in your life time and even at any moment. We highly recommend " The Rapture" video on youtube, spoken by Chuck Missler. You said Chuck Miss her or Chuck Miss ler. ? You do not wanta miss her. Do you? No, you want to see her on her wedding day in all her glory! Chuck will help you not to miss her. LOL (her the Bride of Jesus) Who's the bride of Jesus? Oh really Jesus is getting married? To who? To Mary Magdalene? NO. He will marry YOU and all the believers, a very large concubine. Do you want to go o the Lord's wedding? Just ask Jesus. He can be approached at any time. Ask the Lord if you can be are counted worthy to escape the up coming days, can I have a ticket to ride? You all have to get your own ticket to ride the Glory Express. You must get SAVED. The time may be soon, meanwhile continue to work your ass off and pay the rent. LOL
"I Wish We'd All Been Ready "
I wonder? if you know him? LOL.
You must study the Bible thoroughly or watch this one hour video, to get to the final conclusion of a "Pre Tribulation Rapture theory." Many pastors believe in a post trib. rapture, and they are right, they will be left behind. If you believe in a Pre Trib. Rapture, you will be taken out of harm's way. I guarantee it! If you keep your lamp full of holy oil and sin no more. 100's of Bible scholars preach a pre-triblation rapture. Here is a few good ones : Hal Lindsey and Tim LaHaye and Jack VanImpe and best explanation of it all is Chuck Missler and Scottie's Rapture Timeline , he has excellent videos of the TRUTH about this word 'RAPTURE', that I was burdened with for 32 years. No words came explain the Glory of the Lord's first and second return to planet Earth. His first visit will be a snatching away. The 2nd time will be at the end battle of Armageddon, the battle is won and the devil gets locked up. and we live a 1000 of peace and rule with rod & iron, meaning a judgment everyday, rather than at the end of your life.
I got a vision of the Rapture 32 years ago and would like to share with you what I learned all this time on this word " Rapture". I'm telling you the TRUTH.
I ain 't lying or making this up, or I'm I being paid to share this with you. I'm not a Pastor and I do not take donations. Send no money, just call. I always liked that line. LOL Only an obedience to Christ, who has shown me so much all these years, I can never turn from Him, the Father and the Holy Spirit. Please read on.
Only the Father knows the time or the hour, not man
The testimony of Brother Andrew (10/4/2013 update)
Best information on the Rapture is from Pastor Chuck Missler and Scottie's Rapture Timeline video.

To me, it means "taken out of harm's way right before a devastating pole shift or violent solar flare? Right before a world wide disaster, GOD the Father's angels, blows the shofar (horn trumpet) and the dead in Christ rise first, then we who are alive in Christ arise to meet the Lord in the air.
"This is how people will feel after the rapture, they will call upon my name and I shall not hear them!" from a loud audible thunderous voice. (1980) I wonder , , do you know him ?
Be ready like the 5 wise virgins. Be prepared. Sept/Oct. 2013 - Solar flares so hot will take out world power grids, predicted by remote viewers, called the KILLSHOT by re known viewer : Major Ed Dames Read the parable of the 10 virgins, 5 were wise, 5 were foolish. (Matthew 25 )
He shall come like a thief in the night ( I Thessalonians 5 )
Is comet ISON = Nibiru? We all will see it in Nov. Dec. 2013 You can view it on Google sky, see how. NASA says it is the star C.W.Loinis, but others say it is this 7 planet snake constellation, the winged planets - Nibiru
Comet ISON is it Nibiru?, in which has 7 planets and will show up in the skies, Sept - Dec 2013 It will show up as a 2nd red sun, will block the sun for 3 days of darkness, solar flares will take out the power grid, so be prepared with stored food and water for a few weeks. Poles may flip. 3000' wave on the east and west coast. A quick death if you live on the coast like we do. LOL. I already died to my flesh long ago and took up the cross, so death is nothing to me. One taxi into another , is all it is. For believers, death is nothing, no fear. For all un saved people, death is TOTAL FEAR. Get SAVED and ditch all fear!
LOOK AT NIBIRU ON GOOGLE SKY, it is near the LEO constellation.
Nasa calls it "C.W. Leonis", but that is not what other say. Astronomers studying Nibiru , 12 of them have mysteriously died, a few were old age, but the younger astronomers. I do not trust what the media tells
I bet you figured that out by now. LOL You have to do the research and show theyself approval, ask the
Lord as you do your reseearch, fill your lamp with oil as you read.
Be ready! : Watch the Youtube video below, send to family and friends.
Sorry for this heavy message. I hope it does not alarm you, it is for getting ready for the big hug, the big smile, the day you meet your Savior. Just like meeting your past Father for the first time again. Some are not ready to meet Him, face to face and they must run and hide. You are a different story, you will face the truth and grab a hold of what's coming. Who's coming? Jesus is coming! One more day is a day closer. A Marriage Feast for His church people, His so called "bride", or, what's left of her. Only 5 virgins were ready. No need to hide underground like some military & little high tech. grays will do. They wish to ride out the fire and glory of he Lord in a protected cave. Since you have a choice to live a good productive lifestyle, you do not have to live in greed, sin and criminal activity. They will most likely get buried. Best to be a 99% topsider, full of faith, no fear, face the sun & ready to meet the Lord with all His flames and glory!
EXCELLANT RAPTURE TIMELINE EXPLAINATION - Feast of Trumpets? Sept. 5th 2013 ? Moon calander in Oct. 7,8,9 2013
Predicted Solar Flares that can take out all power on earth.
When this happens, it may be off for weeks, be prepared, candles food, flashlights. Watch the Ken Peters 5 hour vision 1980
30 nights in hell and 10 days in Heaven, testimony of Mary K. Baxter
A must watch video for every soul on Earth! It is a heavy message.
Concerning 12/21/12 - I like this explanation found here. Actually 12/21/12 is 12/16/13
"People of all cultures have been predicting the end of the world for millennia now. But every morning, the sun has still risen and the world continues. Oh, the world will end some day. Nothing lasts forever. Eventually the sun will run out of fuel and it will die, taking our earth along with it. Humanity will probably be extinct by then. It's a long way off!
It is possible that the Mayan calendar is predicting a polar shift. Those happen every 6000 years or so. The last one happened around 4000BCE. It's what turned the Sahara desert and most of the middle east into a desert. They used to be lush and green. All that garden of eden area (Iraq) got buried and turned into oil. So we are due for a polar reversal and possibly a climate shift. It seems unnatural and traumatic because it doesn't happen often (to humans, that is) but to the earth, it's a routine thing. It's possible some people may die, but I don't think it will wipe out humanity or cause the earth to just be some dead lump of rock, completely uninhabitable for living things.
A polar shift doesn't happen overnight. It takes place over a period of time. So there's really no set date. When the poles switch, what is north will be south and what is south will be north. We'll get some crazy weather, perhaps land that was once hospitable will become uninhabitable and vice versa.
If you think about it, every time something major happened in our lives, it was the end of the world as we knew it, but we went on living all the same. So, there's really nothing to get all excited about. What happens, happens, and there's nothing anyone can do to change it."
Be prepared mentality, spiritually, just in case. It will appear red slightly larger than the moon. If this happens pray the entire time. After that a pole shift can happen. 3,000' wave on the west coast of the USA. A week later, the 7 planets of Nibiru (Sumarian title) will throw it's debris field to earth, comets, fire fall, etc. Maybe the "Rapture" of LOVE happens at this time? Time of the pouring out of the vials wrath of God. No man knows the time or hour. Best to be ready. Matthew 25:1-13 If nothing happens, GREAT, let us live longer, Lord. Youtube search the "Montauk Chair" Time travelers feel a bump at this time. The chair supposedly came out of a UFO craft, and can go though time warps. Sounds bizarre, hard to believe. Believing in Jesus Christ is hard too, unless you spend time with GOD your whole life, well I did some research, now I believe.
No one knows when the end will come, even Jesus did not know, only the Father knows, but you may know the season. I thought He may have come during the "Feast of Trumpets" - Sept. 2009. When the horns are blown and the Marriage beings. What marriage? who is getting Married? The "Marriage Feast of the Lamb" that will occur some time in the future. I was actually bummed, that it did not happen. Now it is October 09, one more day closer to Dec. 21, 2012. The exact time of the Grand Alignment of the Milky Way, end of the Mayan calendar and the time of the Red Nibiru, the serpents of seven planets with a terrible tail of comets!
Feast of Trumpets Bible Study ( 1 of a 6 part series) uploaded 9/03/11
You cannot call a date. If someone does beware. I was bummed to find out the Feast of Trumpets passed. We are still here, oh well back to work. I can hang here a little longer. I say "Be Ready" by the Blood of the Lamb" we are free, cleansed and Ready to Meet Our Maker. Amen. I'm happy and I'm ready.
Jesus' bride is the church, the family of God, where all are welcome in, but few take the path or partake. Faster than twinkling of an eye, faster than a flash of light going from the east goes to the west. Enter into the "Marriage Feast of the Lamb of God." I believe the season is now, these next few years,. Why? How did you come up with this conclusion? Well 2012 is 3.5 years away, this summer of 2009 could very well be it. 3.5 years is half way through the 7 year tribulation period written in Revelations. Pre-tribulation evaluation. The "Feast of Trumpets" is Sept. 19th , 2009, a new moon. Google the "Feast of Trumpets". Many pastors are telling their congregations the same message. WorldChallenge.org is one of many. That is if you believe in the Word of God. Many do not, me I have too, I'm grafted in. If I'm off and a little early in saying so, well at least you read this and are getting ready to meet the Lord in the Air. For Jesus is coming back first to snatch away His bride . (bride=church) ( church = temple, your body) ( A body filled with the Holy Spirit , repented and allowed God's spirit to reside in your spirit, just by asking him in) He says he will come like a thief in the night? That means He will come get His bride when most are not ready. Why will he start His 7 year Marriage Feast of the Lamb at night? Night time meaning, you won't know what happened till the next day, but, by that time, it will be too late and the door will be shut. The parable of the ten virgins is all about being ready . (Please read Matthew 25:1 ) Five virgins were ready , five were foolish. The five wise gals, had oil in their night lamps. ( oil = Holy Spirit ) You must be filled with holy lamp oil? Anointed with oil means you have the Holy Spirit poured all our your body from your head to your toes. The Bible tells us while the world is going through 7 years of tribulation; the believers (the 10 virgins who make it) will be up in Heaven partying with the Lord for 7 long years! Sounds way better than suffering for 7 years. I have 2 children; one is a kindergartner, what future does she have? She has a future with the Lord, is all I can see. Believe me, I wish I was dead wrong with all of this, but my spirit inside me tells me to kept writing. Not enough believers are actually ready. Many believe and have accepted Christ one year or another, but to stay in tune with the Holy Spirit in these days is a MUST ASSIGNMENT . No need to worry, just relax and bath in the peace of the Holy Spirit. Read your Bible daily, pray to God without stopping, every moment, Praise God in all things, at all times, good and bad. If your bummed or playing the blues for a day, it is because your not focused on "thankfulness" your not content. Contentment is great gain in God's eyes. Be happy where you are at. Sure we all get bummed, especially in these hard financial times Satan has brought upon God's people. Some of us are so used to spending money to have fun, well now we have to make due with no money. The NWO's plans is to bankrupt God's people. They also plan on nuking many US cities to cause Marshall Law. You do not believe it now, but on that bad night, you will find out the next morning. That is the day that you will remember that you read this information. On that day the Internet probably will be taken down. Take heed and run for the hills, take food and provisions for as long as you can camp. For they will take you to a place you will not want to be at. No buying or selling useless you take the mark of the beast ( bio chip in wrist or forehead) No more good ole USA, but rather the Amero, they already minted the coins. Also go to ae911truth.org and find out how the twin towers and building 7 on 9/11/01 was taken down by planned controlled demolition, by who? The same people who will bring in the NOW ( new world odor) and no more good ole USA. Sorry to be so rude and abrupt here with this message, but it is to shake up your soul and get you to listen to the Holy Spirit. Hopefully your not too demonized that you can not accept the Lord into your heart, if you find violent opposition to this message, I would go seek a church and have the elders lay hands on you, you may be incarnated with many demons, unknown to you, till now.
The word "rapture " means taken away. Ascend away from danger. Not THE "Rupture" as some joke around and call it. This word is not in the Bible. Many make fun of this coming event. That is perfectly OK, with me, as many don't understand it. The only reason why I studied it is due to an "audible voice " I once heard during a time of pain, when I was a baby Christian that was 30 years ago. I have been studying eschatology ever since. (Eschatology - study of the end times and revelations) This subject always interested me. Since I was a boy scout, I learned to "be prepared"
LOUD AUDIBLE VOICE FROM GOD THE FATHER AT 3AM, APRIL 1980
The loud audible voice said in my studio apartment, when I was 23 years old, yelled this message "This is how people will feel after the rapture, they will call upon my name and I shall not hear them!" It came at 3 am, after a long night of pacing back and forth, from 9pm till 3 am, 6 hours of pacing, due to smashing my thumb in my old truck's car door, I smashed it to 1/8" thick, it was throbbing with pain, I had my hand above my head, I could not do anything to keep my mind off the pain, it was one of the worst throbbing pain I had experienced in my life. After I heard this loud voice, whom I believed was the Father's voice, not the Holy Spirit, not Jesus' voice, not the devil, not me that was for sure. Since I lived by myself at the time in a studio apartment in Cayucos. (Central Coast of California small beach town) After I heard that voice I throw the covers of the bed over my head to hide. I woke up at 12 noon the next day, a quiet sunny Sunday. I usually get up like clock work at 7:30 am, this morning I slept till noon? I woke up in peace, my thumb no longer was in any pain at all. It was all black and blue but no pain, I had to squeeze it real hard to get any pain. It was like my nerves were dead in that thumb. I was miraculously healed, Praise God!
I had moved to Cayucos at 22 years old to go surfing. I was rebellious to a long college career, due to a horrible death in my family. I just wanted to have a good time and had many interests, but no reason to study any subject at that time, but I enjoyed surfing everyday, it helped keep my mind of of losing a dear sister at age 13. She was terminally ill from cancer.
Working at a restaurant at night. I was young and energetic; the happy go lucky type, joked around on a regular basis. I enjoy learning about the ways of the Holy Spirit. I just got saved about a year before this event. My sister died of cancer at the age of 13, and I was 18, it devastated my family and me. I was so devastated to the point of not even wanting to live any longer. Our family never went to church, my Father said religion causes war, why go? I can fellowship at the Golf Club, all I want.
The loud voice I believe was God's Voice, the voice of the Father: Yahweh. Now go ahead and stone me, I don't care, I do know, that I did in fact hear this voice and now your reading it. I tell only the TRUTH. I have put myself on the line. I realize I will be casting my pearls before swine's and loved ones that believe like I do in the Holy Trinity and saving of the soul through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Blessed & Wonderful Savior. My heart is in stoned with the truth from above. We are all connected; we all have a spirit inside us. So as you read this, you too can feel the rest of the Holy Spirit upon you. If I'm telling you the truth, it will capture your heart. All you have to do is ask Him in. Realize that with out love and hope, we are nothing.
Now let me go back to the day before this audible voice in my room. My truck broke down near a gas station in San Luis Obispo, near where I was working at the time. I managed to park the old truck at this gas station near the end of Madonna Road and Higuera Street, this was in 1980. A lot quieter back then, now that intersection is all busy. Back then it was quiet. That night I spelt over a friend's house in Morro Bay. I spelt on the coach and was awakened by my friend, I had a nightmare and in the nightmare I was being stabbed to death. I was screaming and yelling my friend said, who awoke me by shaking me. What a weird dream I thought. The next day a Sat. I hitchhiked back to my truck with a tool box. I get to my truck finally to find all the tires were slashed, the spark plug wires were all ripped out, the radiator had a million holes in it from a screwdriver, the cab was broken into, a broken window, stereo ripped out, but my Bible was still on the front seat like I left it. I was shocked, why would anybody do this. I did not know too many people in SLO and no enemies at all, I just moved here 6 months prior. I got along with everybody I met. Oh well, I said, I told the gas station attendant to "Praise the Lord in all things, in time of bad and also in time of good things" Praise ye the Lord in all things" Well at lest I had a good attitude over the entire deal.
You know I had $15 in my pocket, I did find all the spark plug wires in the cemetery next door, my stereo too was out in the cement lawn, but all busted. The Tire guy next store was open and he feels sorry for me and get me 4 used tires all mounted and everything for $1.00 per tire. I then spent $5.00 on "JB Weld" cement at a near by auto parts store to repair the radiator holes, in which were many. I filled the truck with as many empty milk plastic jugs as I could find in the near by donut shop's trash bin. I filled all these containers with water. After being there all day the JB Weld dried (some what) I finally got the truck to start and put $5.00 of gas in the tank. I had just enough money to try and get home and drive the truck. I was stoked! Praise the Lord, he always pulled though. On the way home about 14 miles north, I had to stop about 4 times due to the truck over heating. I was pushing it with the heat, so I pulled over and had to wait, then fill it with more water in the radiator. It seemed to come out as fast as I poured it in. The last stop and fill of water I manage to shut the truck door on my left thumb. The old Ford trucks with the ignition key on the left side by the door hinge. I shut the door on my thumb and to open the door, I had to kick the door open with my right foot, it took about 20 seconds of kicking before finally the door opened to let out my poor, crushed, smashed thumb to 1/8" thick! At that point I was exhausted and tried and I cried a river of tears, all the way to Moro Bay. I could not take it any longer. I stopped back off at my friends in Morro Bay and they cheered me up and they were having a BBQ, like always. My thumb was not so bad at that point. So a few hours later I drove home at night to Cayucos, 5 miles more north. Once I got home to sleep, that is when the throbbing pain started, from about 9 pm till 3 am, I paced the floor, crying out to God ands ask for a quick healing. I even got mad at God, calling Him, yelling and crying and pacing, I could do nothing to ease the pain. The emergency hospital was back in SLO, I had no way to get there or any money, no insurance, etc. I prayed God would heal me or take away the pain. This went on for hours. Finally at 3 am while I was back in bed, that is when I heard the loud audible voice of Yahweh the Father: "This is how people will feel after the rapture, they will call upon my name and I shall not hear them!"
When I was a baby follower of Jesus (Rarely calling myself a Christian, but rather a follower of Jesus) So many people don't like Christianity and so many churches that can't agree on doctrine, it was confusing, so to cut it clean and short, I said I followed Jesus and that was it. He was my friend and he will be your friend too. I had previously had been into all types of spiritual stuff, meditating, Tibetan masters, Buddhism and anything spiritual, New Age books, etc. but when I laid down on the floor, prostate on the ground at the Cayucos Motel room floor, after almost committing suicide due to my little sister dying of a dreadful disease, I told God, if you are real, then you can have this lost life. I was changed and did a 180º turn toward God; I bought myself a Bible before, trying to take my life with suicide. I laid out my life out on the floor. I was lifted up and was nourished the Word of God for about a week straight, I read the New Testament first and the red letters used to jump off the page and come into my face, at one point. And one time Jesus' face came into my face, as I was reading one of those days. I was feed a bottle of pure milk of the precious Holy Spirit. I met the Smith Family and Pastor Jim took me in like one of his own. Later I had demons attached to me and he prayed and cast the out, I went through a lot. Jim used to call me the "The Word Hungarian" for my hunger for God's word. He had 3 daughters my age and they all freaked out, thinking one of them had to marry me. I was just a surfer kid at the time, no money, no career, no dream home desire, no nothing.
RAPTURE VISION DURING THE DAY 32 years ago (1980)
About 3 months after that incident of the loud audible voice in my room. I was playing my guitar at lunch time, in the same studio room, I was then working out of my garage air brushing t-shirts , that we sold to tourist shops in town. I remember learning a Bob Dylan tune. "Man gave Names to All the Animals, In the Beginning, Long Time ago" when I went into a vision. First I saw Christ fold his arms as to hug an invisible person, I just saw his arms and shoulders, no face shoot, down to his waist. Next scene I was standing with a lot of people in formation. A girl with long blonde hair was in front of me and people all around me as far as I could see, people all standing in lines all dressed in white robes. Off to my right about 10 feet away I saw a 4" tall stone wall, so I walked over to this cobble stone wall and went I looked over, I about jumped in my soul, I looked over the wall to see the curve of the blue earth below! It gave me a shrill feeling up my spine as if I was on top of a tall cliff looking down. It made me jump back in fear. Wow where are we? I could see the round edge of the earth, like we see in the NASA photos. I jumped back in line, and as far as I could see people, like hills of them all over the left side of it and me seemed like everybody that was around me, I knew them. You could see God in the sky far away above the people, in a big throne chair, all white and shinning about him, You could see a bearded figure, but that was it, he was moving his arms around, doing gestures, no voice, it was quiet, just the chatter talk of the people. As He gestured you could tell things on earth were happening. Flashes of light on earth, many fireballs? comets? were hitting the earth, etc. Then he spun the throne chair around with his arm guiding and pointing away, and immediately we were all flying away through space. The next scene is a white fireball with a long white tail of a fireball of light was traveling through space. Then the vision ended and I woke up, like I was in a dream, but it was broad daylight and I was awake strumming my guitar. Wow I thought. I have never since that time ever had a vision during the daytime and I never have heard an audible voice ever again.
A few years later I meet a Pentecostal Preacher in Pasadena, CA. Father of Dennis Travis ( DT Audio Labs) he and Eddie Van Halen learned how to play guitar as kids, in Pasadena, CA. They both learned guitar together. Well Mr. Travis told me he had a vision of the Rapture like mine, at 8 years old, he was at that time about 65 years old. Now passed. The vision I got preceded his vision. His vision was like this : He saw lights come down from heaven at night down to a graveyard, he said the beams of light came down to the graves and in a second a lighted body appeared above the grave and went up, this happened all through the graveyard all at once. Then he saw a valley below of rooftops of homes in a suburban layout. He saw lighted ghosts coming out of the roofs and descending up, one at a time. He said he saw families and single people coming out of the roofs. As he spoke at this point he started crying and tears ran down his face. I said what happened. He said he always real sad when he spoke about this part. He said not very many came up as to how many houses there were. Then he said a flash of great light happened next and the vision ended. I asked him if you had this vision at 8 years old how can you still remember it? He said my memory of that vision is like I just had it yesterday, I remembered all of it.
So if you are reading this, please repent and follow Jesus, re-dedicate your life to Christ. Many will be left behind. My thoughts are that nuclear bombs will go off on US big cities all at once from? Dirty suitcase bombs? Or Tesla's particle ray that exploded and flattened Tunguska, Siberia, Russia in 1908, from the Wardencliff Tower, on Long Island. You don't have to have a nuclear bomb to rain fire from heaven all you need is a large coil, just like Tesla had at Wardencliff, maybe Russia has them or Iran. Why mention this? Well the NWO wants Marshall Law to happen. They want to disturb the nice life we have in the US and destroy our Constitution and rights, all taken in away by a large disaster, way bigger than 9/11. They want to implant the beast and arrest everyone, force them into their military police and army. The coming explosion of Yellowstone, the super volcano that is to erupted around 2012. A well kept secret to man, but not to God. He knows all. Not only does he know every hair on your head, he also knows every single molecule that makes up all matter, in the past and in the future. Don't worry he has it all under His control. To be apart of this control and true peace, just ask God into your heart, ask Jesus to forgive you and give your life to Him, a very solution, but a difficult step for most. Some of us will do this and get filled with the Holy Ghost, someway or another and if we keep up with it, it continues to grow. Sin will try to come back and the demons come back to haunt you, but you learn to put on the armor of God and learn to fight back and pray. It is all a spiritual battle from that point on, but you always victorious through Christ. Going to church helps back up this feeling and many lessons to learn from. Hopefully you have a church in your town that is cool and many friendly people who love God like you do. Watch out though, many are not like you and your new found faith; some churches are way out of whack. So do not focus on man and there differences focus on Jesus instead. People & the church, will let you down, but Christ will not.
In Dec. of 2012, the Mayan Calendar ends, the 12th planet or mysterious comet comes by the earth causing such a large magnetic pull, the earth will flip its poles. What happens to us? Only "God only knows how much I love her."
I read that Tesla could have had something to do with the explosion in Tunguska area in Russia -- that he was supposedly trying to get the attention of the Perry Expedition that was near the region at the time. From his long island Wardencliff Tower, sending a ball of current through the air, bouncing off the stratosphere and then it exploding just above the ground over Tunguska, Siberia. He had a guest at his tower that night and the guest watched him flip the switch and rumble. Later Tesla mentioned in his notes, that he was sorry and was glad no human got hurt. I think this is why they took those towers down a few years later and took his name out of the textbooks. The Rockefeller Company by the way prints the schools and university textbooks, not Edison. Edison hated Tesla and his natural AC electricity; so much he had his lab burned down in NY. Why does the power plants say "edison" when Tesla invented AC, edison was into DC and Tesla told him to go AC, but edison refused. Edison was a capitalist, Tesla cared less about money, he just enjoyed the rapture of information given to him in visions and dreams, son of a pastor and a line of pastors in his family. Nikola Tesla was the greatest inventor of the 19th and 20th century by far, no one comes close to his accomplishments and patents.
Recent speculations about Tesla's involvement in the 1908 Tunguska event were initially fueled by a few statements made some time ago in the New York Times. In the first of these, published in March 1907 he speaks of "projecting wave-energy" and again in April 1908 reference was made to the "direct application of electrical waves without the use of aerial engines or other implements of destruction." And, in 1915 he stated,
"It is perfectly practicable to transmit electrical energy without wires and produce destructive effects at a distance. I have already constructed a wireless transmitter which makes this possible, and have described it in my technical publications, among which I may refer to my patent 1,119,732 recently granted."
All three of these statements suggest the capacity of a Wardenclyffe-type plant to transmit a destructive impulse of electrical energy. Presumably this would manifest itself as an explosive release of energy such as can be created by the discharge of a large value, high voltage capacitor. Electric fireballs, spherical plasmoids, or ball lightning have also been reported to explode in a similar fashion. The books Ball Lightning & Tesla's Electric Fireballs and Tesla's Fuelless Generator and Wireless Method touch upon this subject. See Tunguska -- A Tesla Connection? for the full text of the 1908 and 1915 articles.
Why mention Tesla? It is just another way to blow up a city and not knowing who did it?? They can easily say, oh a terrorist in a cave did it. God hates lies, and all who follow lies, all who know deep down they are involved in the plot or are being paid by the same bunch. They only did it, to get all the money and power. God has all the power and money he wants, he does not need our money. Stick with God and you'll live, forget about Him and you'll suffer a horrible death. Life on the other side is wonderful and a beautiful awaking once you get there. Meanwhile we live our lives on on earth, waiting or the end time criminals to gain even more power and take you to place you will not want to go to and you will have no way to get back home. A bio chip will be implanted in your wrist or forehead if you want to buy food at the markets. If you accept the mark of the beast, you will be stuck. You must refuse the mark and they will send you away to a concentration camp to die of hunger eventually, a painful death and because you were stubborn and left behind. So if you read this, please ask Christ into your heart. No time like today to get saved once and for all.
He Shall Come Like a Theif In the Night
1Thesolonians 4:16 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.
1Thesolonians Chapter 4 : 14 : For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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.
5:1) But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 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. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 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. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labor among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. Peace to you, pray for the peace of Jerusalem, Shalom,
1 Thessalonians 5
"He shall come like a theif in the night"
But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing. And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. Brethren, pray for us. Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss. I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read to all the holy brethren. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
