(Rapture is a Vatican/Jesuit Lie )
The "Resurrection" has been erroneously labeled The "Rapture". 



While Yahusha/JESUS was alive, He prayed to His Father: "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  John 17:15 (KJV)

Yahusha/JESUS gave signs of what must happen before His Return:  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"  Matt. 24:29 (KJV)

Warning: Tribulation Straight Ahead!

By Mike Taylor


“I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD” (Zephaniah 1:3).

Have you seen what is in the news? Everyone who reads the newspaper, listens to their TV, scans the Internet or reads even the Drudge Report sees all the strange reports of worldwide calamities in nature that no one can explain. We see signs in the heavens. We see asteroids coming very close to our world and the scientists can’t explain them or predict them all. Russia had a meteor fall to the earth the size of a quarter of a football field, exploding in the atmosphere causing injury and damage to thousands of people and property. There was a reported sighting over Cuba and without warning that it was coming. The same event happened over in California. From news reports, these events continue to happen and with no apparent explanation. What is coming upon the earth?

Now we find out, even though it is being under reported, that deaths of different species of animals continue unabated. It gives a person pause to try and understand what is happening, as this is not normal in any sense of the word. Lame stream media has tried to spin this as caused by electrical storms, fireworks going off, or environmental changes due to “climate change.” Then others dismiss it as a normal occurrence that has happened before and that this has been seen the past? Oh, really media hounds? Have we?

We see the latest report of thousand of seal pups washing up on California’s coastline and we have not a clue why this is happening. If it’s a natural occurrence in regard to these animals dying, then why is it just one species that is affected in several cases? Remember the black birds by the thousands falling out of the sky in Arkansas, or drum fish by the hundreds of thousands washing up on the banks of an Arkansas river not even a hundred miles away? Why does it not affect the other fish, if it’s natural? Why not other birds in the area, if its a natural occurrence or environmental? How about the recent past news of 200 head of cattle suddenly dying in Wisconsin? The whole herd was found dead. Can’t explain it in the natural? Neither can I, and it is making some people very apprehensive about what could be the cause.

This phenomenon keeps happening all over the globe, as suddenly, aquatic life is washed up onto our shores or beasts are found dead in fields or birds fall from the sky. If you think this is news from the past, read the latest online at this web address:


These events just seem to keep happening, even in recent news and most likely will continue without explanation. Signs in the heavens are rampant in our skies. Unexplained phenomenon have men searching the heavens for a doomsday life extinction strike upon the earth, from a distant traveling asteroid coming into our solar system. Not to mention the coming signs that we have already gone over about blood red moons, and solar eclipses that are predicted in the near future from NASA. Are all these just business as usual?

Now I don’t know exactly the cause, nor am I a scientist and I’m not into conspiracy theories. But when things start becoming strange and unexplainable, I turn to my Bible for any possible explanation that might give comfort or give an answer to these types of events─especially when I believe that we are in the very last days before the start of the Tribulation. If the news is supernatural, will it only increase in intensity?

Time will tell, if these events continue. Then stress on men’s minds and hearts will increase, too. To me, it sounds like warning signs of a coming judgment on this earth. I believe that the Tribulation is straight ahead of us. From what I have read in our Bible, if you think these events are mysterious and foreboding, you haven’t seen anything yet. Wait ‘till God gets really busy bringing upon this earth signs that we know must be interpreted as only divine, as men will know in their hearts that the signs they see, spell doom to this world they cling to.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25-26).

Are these events causing distress amongst the nations?

It is coming and if this is what men fear, it will only get worse as the verses above lay out. So what could be the explanation of these strange events? You can find many of these end time events in Revelation, but I turn to the book of Zephaniah and look at this prophet’s prophecy concerning judgment on the city of Jerusalem and Judah, the southern kingdom of Israel. I believe the prophet speaks of a people who have turned their back on God. Zephaniah speaks to them, and I believe he speaks to us in these last days of our history on this earth. I don't want you to just read these excerpts from God’s Word, but take that Bible in your lap and read of our future in Zephaniah, that many have yet to read or have long forgotten. It will surely come to pass in your lifetime.

Zephaniah 1.1-7:

“The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.

I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.

I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.

I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;

And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham; and them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him.” Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.”

In verse 5, who is Malcham? It is another word for Molech and God saw how they passed their children through the “fires of Molech.” Child sacrifice was going on by the idolatry and worship of Molech, not to mention all the abominations of the worship of the other false gods of that time.

This prophecy was Zephaniah’s warning to the people about their idolatry and about coming judgment for their sinful ways. Have we not passed our children through the fire? Can you say, “elected abortion” of a whole generation of American citizens who never got a chance at life?

Zephaniah was a prophet of judgment. He prophesied of the imminent devastation of the land of Judah and the destruction of Jerusalem because of Judah’s injustice, hypocrisy and idolatry in chapter 1 (sound familiar?). This prophecy was fulfilled in 586 BC. This is why the faithful remnant is called to seek Jehovah when the nations near and far will feel Jehovah’s vengeance (chapter 2). The actual corrupted state of things stands in contrast to the future blessings of the people as described in chapter 3.16-17:

“In that day it is said to Jerusalem, `Fear not, O Zion, let not thy hands be feeble.

Jehovah thy God `is' in thy midst, A mighty one doth save, He rejoiceth over thee with joy, He doth work in His love, He joyeth over thee with singing.’

The blessing of God being with us, will remove all the wrath and judgment, as God has laid waste all who rebel against Him, and He will appear in the clouds of heaven and return with His Saints to rule and reign for a thousand years. Leading to His judgment on these people in Zephaniah God gave them ample warning and likewise, so does He give us the same today. He warned them and He warns us to seek His face and to repent.

Zephaniah 2:1-3:

“Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’s anger come upon you.

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger.”

Again, God speaks to us from His word, especially for this time in which we live:

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

In recent times past, I would have believed that America had a chance to turn back to God and He would forgive and heal this nation. I don’t believe that anymore; the nation as a whole has turned reprobate. If God would withhold His hand from this nation in judgment, He would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah for its destruction, as we have become them. The homosexual agenda continues unabated, and to turn a blind eye to this abomination will only bring God’s judgment even quicker.

The whole book of Zephaniah makes it clear that the prophet looks far ahead of the imminent destruction of Jerusalem to that dreadful day of Jehovah, the day of His anger and judgment, which, however, will follow the blessing of the millennial reign of peace.

You can see our nation, this land we call the USA -- in the words spoken by Zephaniah. We are like the ancients, headed for judgment. God is trying to get our attention worldwide. It’s not just happening in America, it’s happening all over the globe, but America is where I live. Events described in the reports discussed above are coming from England to the other side of the globe to Australia. Unexplainable events that Zephaniah was warning the people of southern Israel about are being seen right now.

Zephaniah was speaking of the “Day of the Lord.” It was an imminent time in history, but it does not stop with these ancient people. There are peculiarities in the prophecy when Zephaniah is warning the people about the future coming day of the Lord.

The day of Jehovah is mentioned as follows in the book of Zephaniah:

Chapter 1.7: The day of Jehovah.

Chapter 1.8: The day of Jehovah’s sacrifice.

Chapter 1.9: The same day.

Chapter 1.10: That day.

Chapter 1.14: The great day of Jehovah.

Chapter 1.15-16: A day of wrath, of trouble and distress.

Chapter 1.18: The day of Jehovah’s wrath.

Chapter 2.2: The day of Jehovah’s anger.

Chapter 2.3: The day of Jehovah’s anger.

Chapter 3.8: The day that I rise up to the prey, says Jehovah.

Chapter 3.11: That day.

Chapter 3.16: That day.

He is speaking of the imminent day of wrath and is speaking of that day in their time, but also of a future event that will precede the final “coming of the Lord.” He is speaking a duality of prophecy of our time, not just the past. He speaks of the signs of the great day of wrath that is to come upon this earth...our earth, in our time. He is speaking of the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His 1000-year reign upon this earth, which is preceded by a cleansing of the earth in righteous judgment.

What will it take for America to wake-up, or will she wake up? I believe she has been lulled to sleep, bathed in her wickedness. Will a catastrophic earthquake destroying large landmasses and its population shake her awake? How about a new terrorist attack that makes 9/11 pale in comparison? Remember how we came together after the attack of the twin towers, the pentagon, and the fields of Pennsylvania that shook our nation? And we returned to our churches in unprecedented numbers?

How long did that last?

After six months of being convicted and shaken, we returned to our old ways and continued our sinful way of life. It seems so long ago, doesn’t it? How quickly we forget how we felt and our need for God. The church needs to wake-up from its sleep, as we must warn others to get on the Ark of Jesus Christ while there is still time to do so.

I just read a commentary of what our downfall will look like: A third world nation that has no power, no authority to do anything to solve a worldwide calamity, as this nation has ceased to exist in its superpower status. Is that time closer than we even think? I’ve written of different scenarios, as no one knows how this will shake out. America will be either decimated, or become the facilitator or the home of the beast power and all its tyranny. Either way, judgment is coming.

Worldwide calamity has started. Time will tell how fast it will move to our shores. As it becomes stronger and stronger and the convulsions of an earth ripe for judgment fill the airwaves -- news outlet reports are fast and furious; you can see what I stated above coming to pass in all its fury. Quoting, Luke chapter 21 again:

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25-26).

Some, who read this commentary, will come away with fear and a dread playing on their hearts and minds. But we have a promise even as we see these events start to unfold:

“A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked” (Psalm 91:7-8).

This would make the average man on the street fearful and many will experience health issues because of one thing and that is: fear and anxiety. My brother and sister in Christ, do not fear, do not let your heart be troubled, as God is in control even as times of tribulation get closer and closer:

“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” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

This is the time when we must be warning others who are outside of God’s protection, those who see what is coming on the face of the earth and are starting to feel anxiety. They know something is coming. They know that “evil is coming this way.” They don’t buy the stories coming out of the media. They feel a dread and a sense of foreboding. You see survivalists who think they can weather the storm, but for how long? No, my friend, when this happens, all will be dealt a most horrific future. Nothing will save those who go through what is coming. It is a time of untold death and carnage, not so much at the hands of men who will take many lives, but at the hand of Almighty God in fierce judgment and wrath aimed at rebellious and sinful mankind.

You who read this message, do you feel the dread in your mind and soul? So what are you to do? Paul warned in 1 Thessalonians chapter 5.2-4:

“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.”

As a warning messenger on the wall, I admonish you and give you an open invitation to quiet the fear in your mind and in your heart with God’s salvation supplied by His only begotten Son.

“But what doth it say? `Nigh thee is the saying -- in thy mouth, and in thy heart:' that is, the saying of the faith, that we preach; that if thou mayest confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and mayest believe in thy heart that God did raise him out of the dead, thou shalt be saved, for with the heart doth one believe to righteousness, and with the mouth is confession made to salvation” (Romans 10:8-10).

God is trying to shake everyone awake as to what is coming. God is calling whoever will believe in His only begotten Son unto salvation. The time is drawing down. The start of the coming seven-years of Tribulation of Daniel’s 70th week could be in the imminent future. So what do you do with this warning, this call unto repentance? You could discard it as the ravings of a madman, or look around you and see that things are becoming very fearful and mind troubling. You may feel a tug at your mind and your heart.

[Jesus said,] “No man can come to me, except the Father that sent me draw him: and I will raise him up in the last day. It is written in the prophets, and they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard from the Father, and hath learned, cometh unto me” (John 6:44-45

Listen to that voice inside your spirit:

“Whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, he shall be saved’” (Romans 10:13)

But in the end, don’t take my word for it and all that I have written; search God’s Word for yourself. Take the news all around you and the warning in your Bible and in your heart, listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit calling you. Make that decision for Jesus Christ today, right now.

Zechariah 12:3,9:
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people; And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Warning: Tribulation Straight Ahead! Part 2

By Mike Taylor


“I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD. I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD” (Zephaniah 1:2-3)

This is part two of follow-up to my last article: “Warning: Tribulation Straight Ahead.”

Man is on a downhill slide into God unleashing His wrath upon this earth. If you wish to get a sense of the dread and the gloom of this time in this planet’s near history, read all of Zephaniah chapter one. God has warned that His patience will run out and will judge this earth and every air-breathing creature on this earth when it will be a day of darkness with no light at all. Only with fear and dread gripping all who have rebelled against God will consume mankind. God is a longsuffering and patient God not willing that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9-10.)

This will be a time of unspeakable horror, as God stretches out His hand on all who dwell on the earth. When you start to read this first chapter of Zephaniah, it first appears that God is talking about Judah, or Israel, because He mentions them by name, but as you read on, you understand and get a firm conviction that He is using Judah as an example of the end time populations inhabiting planet Earth. As you read, you get a sense of utter destruction of the people that God is pouring out His wrath upon. Very few will survive, as God will wipe the surface of the earth clean. (Zephaniah 1:7-14)

Zephaniah is speaking of, what I believe is called the Great Tribulation that John also wrote of in Revelation. We have been leading up this time of God’s wrath for a long time. It started, in earnest, in this last century. But let us look at another time that was parallel to what we have been experiencing and running into head long for the last 100 years.


The time was in the days of Egypt when famine came upon the land and shown in a dream that Pharaoh had that there would be famine in Egypt, which was revealed to Joseph by interpretation. You can read the account in Genesis chapter 47 that speaks of another time that may sound familiar when it is us, not Egyptians that are in want but it is the USA.

Now we know that the Egyptians were an advanced civilization with property rights and great wealth amongst the people, but when the crops failed, the people came to the only source of being able to stay alive, and that was the government. In buying the only food source available, the monetary supply quickly dried up and the government possessed all the money and the people had none. The monetary system collapsed because of repeated crop failures. The next year since there was no money, the people came to Joseph who was the head of the government right under Pharaoh and the people sought more food, but of course, had no money. What happened?

The people owned property, horses, cattle, and all manner of livestock but they traded it entirely to the government so they could live one more year. As the famine continued and they had traded all their livestock and means of production to the government, they gave up their means of livelihood for corn and wheat to make bread. As the famine continued, they came again to buy food.

What was the end of the time of famine in the land of Egypt? Note that it is a time of “seven” years. Sound like anything that we speak of that’s coming? Coincidence, you say? I think God does not do anything by coincidence. Note that as the famine progressed, the people became servants of the state. They were reduced to paying tribute to the state for the privilege of growing crops on the land they sold to the state.


How does this lesson speak to us, and what we are fast approaching? Before this famine the people of Egypt were considered a fairly free people. In the early 20th century, another famine was upon the people of earth and was called the Great Depression. Now I am not comparing the famine in Egypt with the Great Depression, but it shows a comparison of how the people gave up their individual freedoms to be able to eat. There are four major comparisons that are striking in relation to our modern times.

First, as it was in the times of Egypt and their famine, Americans were basically farming communities with many family farms that were the breadbasket of the world. As time of want and hunger spread in both cultures, people were moved from the farm into urban areas out of necessity and looking for a better life, because as it was in the days of Egypt, Americans found themselves unable to pay their mortgages due to crop failures of the dust bowl era and lost the family farm. They were forced to move to the cities.

As an example, the federal bureaucracy grew in that time probably about as fast as Egypt’s did in Joseph’s day. At the same time, Americans witnessed a major abridgement of their freedoms, one of which continues unabated to this day. Just as in Joseph's day, when the Egyptians volunteered to sell their livestock, lands, and lives to the government, Americans of the Depression Era seemed to ask for increased government involvement in and control of their lives. They voted for Franklin Roosevelt, as he would say it, “Again and again and again and again.” Today, the Constitution with its Bill of Rights counts for little more than a piece of memorabilia. Even today, the unconstitutional law of inheritance tax forces families to give up the family farm that has been in their family for generations.

Another example, as it was in Egypt’s day, American had lost the ability to own gold by the edict of Franklin Roosevelt and forced to use paper and now plastic that has done nothing but drive up the huge credit bubble that threatens to destroy our economy to the tune of a 16.5 trillion dollar deficit and growing. In Roosevelt’s day, as it was in Egyptian history, the government was the law.

If you read FDR’s second inaugural address, it will give you pause of what FDR was threatening Congress with. In so many words Roosevelt said: Do it my way, support my programs by federalizing and socializing the American economy, or I will make myself dictator. Congress obviously got the message, as executive orders came fast and furious that has not abated even to this very day. America is headed for tribulation and it has started in the economy. What will tip the scales to allow the government to own all who are called citizens of this land as it was in the days of Ancient Egypt? Answer: Maybe another socialist in the White House?

The Bible passage in Zephaniah, mirrors what John wrote in Revelation to the horror that will be experienced during this time of wrath and men’s wickedness (Revelation 6:2-6)

What will cause war and following after the beast power? The answer is famine, pestilence, and environmental disasters that will begin killing 2/3 of mankind on earth. As it was in the day of famine and want in Egypt, this world will be in want and men will die of starvation. Men will die and their numbers will be so great, that animals will eat their flesh in the streets.

Revelation 6.8: “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”

Mixed with war and famine, God’s wrath will be poured out on unrepentant mankind making it impossible for anyone to live under such circumstances.

Revelation 6.15-17: “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;

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:

For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

It will be the time of Great Tribulation, as God has had enough of man’s rebellion. He will cleanse this earth with divine retribution. He will wipe the earth clean of sin, by fire.

Zephaniah 1.17-18: “And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”

Zephaniah and John the apostle seem to agree that it will be a most horrible time to be a living, breathing human being on this earth. It will be a day like no other that it will be a challenge just to stay alive. If it’s not hunger, it’s war. If it’s not divine wrath, it’s ravaging beast stalking the weak and the sick looking for their own prey. Men in their sin will look for anything to keep them alive.

They will even give their allegiance to a man who heads a one-world government as earthly prince of a confederation of loosely held regions. They will be willing to take a mark and worship one they perceive will keep them alive, temporarily. Satan will deceive all who dwell upon the earth to take a mark and worship a symbol of him self (the Antichrist). He will stand as a dragon that promises to eat them last. They will survive─temporarily, only to be destroyed and become ****ed to the devil’s hell.

Even with all this calamity of divine retribution, mankind so unfortunate to be alive on earth will not repent of their wickedness, but curse the God of heaven and not realize, it is their due for their unrighteousness:

Revelation 9.20-21: “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

God will send plague after plague, much like He sent tribulation to the children of Israel to turn them from their wickedness, but those that populate the earth in the last days will not turn from their evil ways and will be so foolish to think they can do battle with the God of heaven. I submitted in previous articles, that they may even be led to believe they are fighting against an alien invasion, through the deceit of Satan, his Antichrist and False Prophet that lie to the people who have vested their existence and their worship of the wrong “Christ,” this false messiah.

In a final blow to rebellion on this earth, God the Father will send His Son to redeem what He purchased 2000 years ago by shedding His blood on the cross and now comes as a warrior with great wrath to cleanse His creation:

Revelation 19.11-24: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.”

This is what a true Christian has his hope in. Jesus said through John, that we would return with Him riding a white horse, clothed in fine linen, clean and white. (Which was explained to be the sign of the saints in previous verses.) The “true church” will not suffer His wrath, as that has never been His nature to subject His people to His righteous wrath, but to remove them out of the way, beyond receiving His condemnation. Some say that the church will endure right along with the evil men of this age, but is that so?


God has had a plan for mankind to separate the wheat from the chaff, and to burn the tares in the fire of His indignation. Let us think of it like this, to those who believe that all of mankind will endure the tribulation, let us make a hypothesis and seek a conclusion here. If Jesus comes post Tribulation and as the above verses speak of, He will destroy rebellion with the sword of His mouth. Paul speaks that at the last trump that the dead in Christ will rise, and those alive will be caught-up to be with the Lord and so will be ever be with the Lord.

I see a problem here on the Post-Trib hypothesis. If this is so, the dead and those alive are changed into spirit beings and join Jesus Christ in the air, and He destroys all rebellion with the sword of His mouth? Who will be those who enter into the Kingdom of God as mortals? See the problem? Answer is NONE! Those who follow the Antichrist will take a mark and be destroyed. Those who follow Jesus Christ will be changed in the twinkling of an eye. Population left? Nobody is left. In that period of time, there is no fence setting.

There will be no excuses, no middle ground, as you are either for Jesus Christ and His salvation, or you have succumbed to the desire to live another day on the government dole, as Egypt did, or as the Depression Era American citizens did. You will do anything to survive, anything to live one more day, even if it’s to take a silly old mark...who cares, right? God cares and it will provide the ultimate judgment into the Lake of Fire, along with the Beast and False Prophet. You see if you logically approach this, then a pre- Tribulation return of Jesus Christ is the only logical explanation of how God will perform His will. Any other hypothesis of questions and answers makes no sense.

God, in His mercy, has warned all who will listen, that His patience will end and His wrath will be for all who are in rebellion. He has given man 6000 years, give or take a few years, to govern him self and look what a mess we have made of that freedom to do so. There fast approaches a Sabbath rest of 1000 years of Satan’s influence upon this earth, and the earth to return to its former pristine state as was in the Garden of Eden. A remnant are said to enter the Kingdom Age of the rule of Jesus Christ as mortal, but I stress the word remnant, because Jesus Christ will come as a Lion, and a Warrior King and will put down all rebellion in blood.

In the short time we have left, Jesus offers Himself, as the substitution of having to endure His righteous wrath. By accepting the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord: “We are not appointed to wrath, but to receive salvation through Jesus Christ, our Lord” (2 Thessalonians 5:9). To reject this free gift of eternal life will give God no choice but to number you with the rebellious legions that will be destroyed at His coming to reign and rule for 1000 years in the run-up to all of eternity. Won’t you accept His free gift today?

If you hear His voice, respond by accepting His free gift and confess with your mouth, that God has raised Jesus from the dead and made His name above every name, to the glory of the Father. You time grows short, as Jesus promised:

Matthew 28.21-22:

“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.”

When people ask about who will be saved the answer is, many spiritually, but very few physically, as the level of destruction will surpass anything that mankind has ever witnessed. God in His wrath will destroy every man, beast, and fowl of the air in divine retribution to the rebellion of His Commandments and the failure to believe in the only payment for their sins, Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son. Only a few will survive to enter into the 1000-year reign of Jesus Christ as ruler of this world and Satan is chained for a 1000 years ending his reign of tempting man for a Sabbath’s rest.

This is Pastor Mike Taylor, wishing the salvation of Jesus Christ in your life.

Zechariah 12:3,9:
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people; And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
