End Times Overview

Warmest Greetings my friend, this is about a four minute read. Please, read it to the end. The end will encourage you!

Lately I have been watching the movie Exodus staring Paul Newman.  It’s an Otto Preminger production.  It was produced in 1960 and is 3 ½ hours long.  I have watched it four times this past week. Why?  As I watch it, I am gripped more and more by the amazing fact that the prophecies of Scripture have been and still are controlling human history. Prophecy controls current events!  Israel has been and still is at the center of God’s purpose:

         This is what the LORD says, He who appoints the sun to shine by day

          who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs the sea

          so that its waves roar – the LORD Almighty is His name: Only if these

decrees vanish from my sight, declares the LORD, ‘will the descendants

of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me." 

          This is what the Lord says: "Only if the heavens can be
measured and
          the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject

all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done’  declares the LORD.”- Jeremiah 31:35-37.

It is important to understand the role of Israel. Jesus Christ fulfilled over 100 specific prophesies exactly as stated (e.g. John 19:31-37; Acts 13:32-40). And there are over 300 prophecies that describe His second coming in great detail (e.g. Acts 1:10,11; Jude 14,15; Revelation 19:11-16). Some of those prophecies involve the nation of Israel (e.g. Luke 21:20-24; Zechariah 12; Revelation 16; Matthew 24:15-22; Revelation chapter 13).  Israel will again be the focal point of God’s plan – Daniel 9:24-27; Ezekiel 38-39; Zechariah 12-14.

The reason for the hatred of Jews:

Last year, I found out why the Arab nations and Russia want to destroy the Jews.  In his book The Footsteps of the Messiah: A study of the Sequence of Prophetic Events, Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum  makes a statement that when I read it, an understanding exploded in me, I said, “That’s why the world has been trying to kill the Jews.  That’s why there is so much anti-Semitism around the world.”

Dr. Fruchtenbaum points out: Satan knows that once Jesus returns, his kingdom is over once for all.  But he also knows there will be no Second Coming until the Jewish people ask the Messiah to return.  If Satan could ever succeed in destroying every Jew before they have the chance to plead for Jesus to return, there will be no Second Coming. 

 

Satan has waged a perpetual war against the Jews wanting to destroy every last one of them.  A remnant in Israel will survive.  Israel must come to the place of national repentance and accept the One they rejected as their Messiah. As a nation they must cry out: “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” -- Matthew 23:39. 

 

According to the Bible, a remnant of 1/3 of all the Jews will survive the attempts of Satan to destroy the Jews – Zechariah 13:7-9.  The Jews will cry out and Jesus Christ will return to destroy the anti-Christ forces – Revelation 19:11-21.

 

The Next World Changing Event:

Any moment now, all those who are included in Christ and sealed with God’s Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13,14), will in a flash be gone.  Yes, it is true, every born again Christian around the world, even those who have fallen asleep will be gone. That is not Christian doctrine, church doctrine, religious teaching, myth, fiction, delusion, nor hogwash or nonsense; it’s the fact.

 

What will happen after we are gone? 
It won’t be pretty; happy hour will be over. There will be economic chaos, shortage of everything, good people gone mad, looting in the streets and then martial law.

 

When listening to and reading the news it is evident that the people in the world already yearn for a global government. Without a doubt, there will be a global government, a one-world order.  There will also be a one-world religion in the name of peace and national unity for the good of everyone.

Within months after the Rapture:
There are a number of students of Bible prophecy, men like Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, who believe the events spelled out in chapters 38 & 39 of Ezekiel will take place prior to the beginning of the seven years of tribulation, but after the rapture.  My conclusion is that these events will happen within a few months following the Rapture, for more details click here

During all of the chaos following the Rapture, ten kingdoms with ten kings will be forming. The focus of those world leaders will be on creating a form of government to solve the chaotic problems.  During that time of worldwide chaos, and the lack of political power to stop them, Russia along with its Muslim alliance will attack the middle east.  Read all about it in Ezekiel 38 & 39. The leaders in Russia will think that their moment in history has arrived; they will surmise no nation will be able to stop them.

Russia already has huge stores of weapons hidden in the middle east.  Russia has also formed a military alliance with a number of Muslim nations; they want to destroy every Jew. 

Russian leaders are an atheistic people; they don’t accept the Bible as God’s Word so they don’t read it. As result, they will rush into God’s trap – Ezekiel 38.  It will take Israel seven months to bury all the dead of those who attack Israel. 

During that time of chaos, while world leaders are working at creating a government to bring order to the chaos, Russia and it Arab allies will decide it is their time to rule the world. They will invade Israel, but before they do Russia will nuke the U.S. to make sure it cannot interfere. This war is predicted in Ezekiel chapters 38, 39: the war of Gog and Magog, to read more click here

 

What the New World Order will be:
Dr.Fruchtenbaum in his book The Footsteps of the Messiah: A study of the Sequence of Prophetic Events includes a chapter titled: "The Campaign of Armageddon."  In that chapter he points out that during the seven years of Tribulation there will be two political systems, one for each half of the seven years. During the first half, ten men will rule the politics of the world co-equally.  During the second half of the seven years the antichrist will declare himself to be god and set himself up as the one world leader.  He’ll make Hitler look like a nice guy.

 

Fruchtenbaum also points out that there will be two religious systems. During the first half there will be a one-world super-religious system.  During the second half, the antichrist will destroy that super-religious system and set himself up as god and demand worship.  If you don’t worship him, if he can get his hands on you, you will die.


King Obama and the one world government:
At the beginning there will be ten kingdoms with ten kings established. President Obama will be one of those crowned to be a king, he is not the anti-Christ.  But he will swear his allegiance to the world ruler who will rise out of a revived kingdom known as the Roman Empire. He will be the head of the North American Union. That revived Roman Empire has been the craving of ambitious world rulers for centuries.  The prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27 explains all of this.  If you were to read that prophecy you will be amazed by the details, and you should be able to recognize the fact that portion of Scripture has been controlling history for centuries.

 

When looking at the speech President Obama made in Cairo Egypt, some of the statements identify him to be a secular humanist.  His confidence is in people.  He is confident that mankind has the power in themselves to bring about change, to bring about a peaceful co-existence, a utopia. 

 

Secular humanists:
Humanists believe that it is the fault of society that people do bad things, and if you change society you can create a utopia where people do good all the time.  Humanists aim to create a one-world global community with no national borders where everyone lives in harmony. Does this sound familiar?  Collectivism, Marxism has been propagated in the public Universities and in the public schools for decades.  Many Christian churches also adhere to a Social Gospel that was created by Socialists in the early twentieth century in order to gain credibility for Socialism in the United States.

 

In their utopia, the State, in the name of the people, will take control of everything in order to redistribute the wealth to create harmony.  I’ve been to former Soviet states and witnessed the rape of those people’s personal rights. There was a shortage of everything, except for those who were members of the Party. Party members had special privileges along with stores full of everything. In order to deaden the wills of the people, the soviet government made sure there was never a shortage of alcohol for the masses. 

The Deadliest Monster by J.F. Baldwin contains detailed information about the worldview of the Secular Humanist. You can purchase a copy here: http://www.christianbook.com/deadliest-monster-introduction-worldviews/j-f-baldwin/9780972089036/pd/317602?item_code=WW&netp_id=271430&event=ESRCN&view=covers

The mood of the day will be:
Under the ten kingdoms these governments will make sure stimulants are available to everyone. Instead of alcohol, which was used under the soviet system, drugs will be used to dull the senses of the people. They want the people passive and compliant, so the government will freely (free of charge) dispense drugs such as Ritalin, Prozac, Adderall. To stem panic attacks Daxil and Luvox will be handed out.  They will want to induce a sense of well-being in the masses.  

But then there will be chaos, good people gone made: Riots, looting, killing. The mood of the day will be: intense anxiety, paranoia, reckless abandon, severe depression, people committing suicide by the truckload. I’m not trying to scare you, I’m simply informing you of what it is going to be like after the Christians are taken out of the way.

 

All restraints will be lifted:
At this time there is a restraining force in the earth, the Holy Spirit is residing in believing Christians.  Christianity is restraining the power of lawlessness, but soon, we will be taken out of the way and there will no longer be any restraints. Satan, the man of lawlessness and the power of lawlessness will ravage mankind – 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12.  Read it for yourself, also read the book of Revelation. God put it all in writing for anyone to read.  He always leaves it up to the individual, only you can make the decision for your eternal well-being.

 

It won’t be to late to be saved, but it will cost you:
Those who are left behind can still be saved from eternal torment.  If you are left behind you will have a short time to accept the truth of Jesus Christ, if you do, you will be saved from the worse possible ending. 

 

Like I said, President Obama will be crowned one of the ten kings and receive a kingdom, and he will bow to the antichrist.  “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world” – Revelation 13:8.

 

The Revelation tells us the one world religion will be like a harlot drunk on the blood of the saints, those who bore testimony to Jesus – Revelation 17:6.  During that time, king Obama and the other nine kings will make sure that those who hold to the testimony of Jesus are hunted down and executed.  King Obama is already making moves to marginalize Christians more than we are now; the one world religion with its persecution will happen fast. 

 

You think I’m off don’t you? But there are a number of reports stating that some dominant world leaders are already saying Obama is being primed to help establish this new world order.  Smile if you want, but when I’m gone, you won’t be smiling very long.

 

My heart weeps for the people of the world:
Soon, seven years of trouble will begin and nearly six BILLION people will be killed by the sword, famine and plague, by the wild beasts of the earth, and by great earthquakes. The irony is: the one world government that a multitude of people are longing for, is going to execute a lot of people; it will be ruled by a murderous dictator.  At this time, there is close to seven billion people in the world, six billion WILL NOT survive those seven years.  

 

How can six Billion people be killed in seven years?
During those seven years the wrath of God will be poured out, Satan will be free from all restraints, plus the wickedness of mankind will be unbridled. Satan is hideous in his hatred towards mankind.  “The thief comes only to rob, kill and destroy.” That is not a verse in the Bible, it is a statement of fact made by Jesus Christ himself - John 10:10.  The Bible also points out that the devil goes around like a roaring lion seeking to destroy whoever he can – 1 Peter 5:8. 

 

During those days it will be impossible for many to be able to resist the devil.  People will perish because they refused to love the truth of Jesus Christ and be saved. For that reason God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. They will worship the beast and take his mark – 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 13.  All restraints will be removed, so the evil one and the man of lawlessness will be raging out of control on the earth.

 

Hitler and Stalin are examples of the fury of Satan unleashed.  Hitler was responsible for the systematic killing over 6 million people. It is said that Stalin is responsible for the systematic killing of around 60 million of his own people.  I read some where that the former Soviet Union is a land of mass graves.  I’ve met a number of people from that hideous land and everyone of them told me they had family members and friends who were murdered by Stalin.  They pointed directly to Stalin; Stalin was controlled by Satan.

 

The man who is going to be controlled by Satan in the last days is going to be far more hideous in his systematic killing of the masses than Hitler and Stalin combined.

 

Purposes for the time of Tribulation:
The Rapture is the next major event; all Christians will be gone. We are not appointed to suffer God’s wrath being poured out. There are three purposes for the tribulation: 1) for God to finish His purpose for His people Israel as a nation – Daniel 9:24-27; 2) to finally destroy Satan and his kingdom of darkness; 3) to pour out God’s wrath on the Christ rejecting world.

 

Where is the love of God in all of this?

Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, He is the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the whole world –

1 John 2:2.  “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that WHOEVER believes in Him shall NOT perish but have eternal life.”  “WHOEVER believes in Him is not condemned, but WHOEVER does not believe stand condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” “WHOEVER believes in the Son has eternal life, but WHOEVER rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him or her” – John 3:16-36.

 

Those statements have been written in many forms and declared in may ways in every language for centuries, so there is no excuse not to love the truth of Jesus Christ and be saved.  God is love and this is love: He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. God is love so He makes certain everyone has many opportunities to accept the sacrifice of His one and only Son. God is love, so no one will ever be able to claim that they did not have the opportunity to say “Yes” to the truth of Jesus Christ.

 

God does not take pleasure in the death of anyone. God does not appoint anyone to suffer wrath, but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ – 1 Thessalonians 5:9.  It’s the person who appoints himself or herself to suffer the wrath of God.  If anyone refuses to love the truth of Jesus Christ, they will not be saved from God’s wrath. They will believe the lie and perish. It’s your choice, God’s love makes sure you have the choice to choose life, or to reject eternal life. Can’t you see that? You don’t have to be on the earth during those seven years! That is God’s love in all this!

Some of what will happen during the first 3 1/2 years:
A charismatic world leader will come out of the revived Roman Empire. He will force Israel into a peace agreement.  The moment that peace agreement is signed you can set the clock, seven years of tribulation: 1260 days plus 1260 days, and then Jesus Christ will return the Second Time.  The first 3 ½ years will experience something of peace and prosperity. Israel will rebuild their temple. They have to because at the mid-point of the seven years, the anti-Christ will set himself up in that temple as god – Revelation 13:1. 

 

During the seven years of tribulation the Lamb will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty – Revelation 6:16,17; 19:15.  There will be a total of 21 judgments; 7 seals, 7 trumpets, 7 bowl judgments. There were also be 3 woes and a golden censor will be poured out on the earth.

 

There will be peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and earthquakes; multitudes killed by war, famine, plague, and wild beasts.  Around the world, there will be mountains and walls collapsing, earth splitting open, the sun and moon will go dark. Demons will torment people causing them to long to die, but they can’t. There will be persecution and execution at the hand of a murderous world dictator and his forces. Counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, deception and forced submission.  “There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name” – Revelation 14:11. 

 

Can you imagine being so terrified that you can’t find rest day or night for months at a time?  People will be driven mad.  Murders, thefts, and sexual immorality will be rampant. When I think of what those people will be going through, I think they will be as wild as animals; the sexual immorality at that time will be inhuman, beastly.  Pity the women in those day.

 

The mid-point -  a frustrated devil:
A lot happens during this transition period. The devil and his angels are finally cast out of the heavenly realms and are confined to earth Revelation 12:9-13. He is furious because he knows his time is short, his show is about over. 

 

God sends two witnesses to Jerusalem to prophesy.  Don’t touch those guys!  These two prophets torment those who live on earth for 1,260 days.  Whey they finish the beast from the abyss kills them and leaves their bodies on display.  That’s a foolish move because 3 ½ days later God raises them in full view of everyone and tells them “Come up here.” And they go up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies look on. The fourth great earthquake happens, a tenth of the city collapses and seven thousand people are killed.  Some of the people come to their senses and give glory to God - Revelation 11:1-13.

 

During this time, there has been ten kingdoms with ten kings and with a one-world super-religious system controlling that political system. Also, there has been a charismatic leader rising in prominence.  He is controlled by Satan, and Satan has given that man supernatural ability to solve the world’s problems.  He is the one who forces Israel into to the peace accord. He destroys three of those ten kings along with that religious system.

 

At the mid point, 3 ½ years after the peace accord was signed, this man has gained great political power.  He breaks the peace accord, steps into the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and declares himself god.  A Jew kills the man.  Satan raises the man. Satan is Satan, the antichrist is a man controlled by Satan.  At some point a man will accept Satan’s control of his life, at that point, he becomes the antichrist, the vessel of the evil one. He is the man of lawlessness who is doomed to destruction – 2 Thessalonians 2:1-11.  The problem is: he destroys a lot of lives along his way.

 

At this point, men worship Satan because he has given authority to the antichrist, they also worship the antichrist who has set himself up as god. They declare, “Who is like the beast?  Who can make war with him?” – Revelation 13:4.  He is given authority over all inhabitants of the earth; all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb will worship the antichrist as god – Revelation 13:8.

 

A false prophet rises up in Jerusalem and sets up an image of the beast in the temple.  The false prophet performs false miracles in order to deceive the people and makes them worship the beast as God.  He is given power to give breath to the image so that it can speak and cause everyone who refuses to worship the image to be killed.  So if you’re on the earth at that time make sure your out of range of that image.

 

The false prophet forces everyone to take a mark on either their right hand or their forehead.  It is a tracking device to control your every move.  If you don’t take the mark, you can’t buy or sell, and you will be hunted down. If they catch you and you still refuse to swear your loyalty to the beast as god, you will loose your head, literally.

 

Some of what will happen during second 3 1/2 years:
Secular humanists will have fulfilled their destiny; collectivism will come to fruition; there will finally be equality: everyone will be suffering!  There will be a total redistribution of wealth. No one will have anything! Even the daily luxury of taking a shower will be gone.  You won’t have to concern yourself with flossing your teeth because you won’t be able to find anything to eat. The rich and the poor, the famous and the obscure, the powerful and the weak, everyone will be suffering the same agonies.

 

It gets worse before it gets better, but it does get a whole lot better:
The seven bowl judgments are reserved for the last 3 1/2 years.  Ugly and painful sores; the sea is turned into blood and every thing in the sea dies. The rivers and springs of water become blood. The sun is given power to scorch people with fire.  People will be seared by the intense heat but have no water to drink. Humanists will curse the name of God. They will not repent of what they had done – Revelation chapter 16.

 

Amazingly, the secular humanists still won’t repent.  Their intelligence, their educated thinking blinds them to the truth that the supernatural exists.  You have to be smart to be able to recognize what’s going on around you, sophisticated intelligence doesn’t get it.  Smart people don’t have to analyze it or discuss it, nor confer with the experts, they just recognize the facts and make the best decision – repent, cry out to God.

 

The antichrist and his kingdom are plunged into darkness.  People will gnaw their tongues in agony, but they will still curse God because of their pains and their sores. The progressives will still refuse to repent.

 

Those who do believe in Jesus Christ at that time will have a chance of surviving until the millennial kingdom is established. The Lord tells those believers who are still alive: “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed” – Revelation 16:15.  They will have to listen to their own hearts and flee in a moments notice.  There will be no group meetings at that time. Each person’s faith will be in God alone!

 

The devil’s last stand:
Satan, the antichrist, and the false prophet will gather all the armies of the world to the Valley of Jezreel – Revelation 16:13. The final 3 1/2 years are going to be the most destructive.  In a final attempt to destroy the Jews the anti-Christ will surround Jerusalem and attack it. But 1/3 of the Jews will have already fled Jerusalem are hid in the wilderness – Matthew 24:15.  The armies of the anti-Christ – Zechariah chapters 12 through 14- will overwhelm the Jews who are still in Jerusalem.  After that, the anti-Christ will send his forces out into the wilderness to find and destroy the Jews who fled Jerusalem.

 

He doesn’t know that the Jews in the wilderness have come to the place of repentance and have called out “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” That is what Jesus is waiting for – Matthew 23:37-39. He comes back and destroys the armies of the anti-Christ.

 

The seventh bowl judgment is poured out. Again, there will come flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on the earth – Revelation 16:18.

 

That will have been the sixth earthquake during those seven years.  Jerusalem will be split into three parts. All the cities of the nations will collapse.  Every island will be gone and no mountain can be found.  Huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds will fall out of the sky. And still the people curse God – Revelation 16:17-21; Zechariah 14:3-14. The false religion and Babylon is destroyed once for all – Revelation chapter 18; Isaiah chapter 47.

 

It’s over for the antichrist and the false prophet:
Jesus Christ will come riding on a white horse with the armies of heaven following Him.  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood. Out of His mouth comes a sharp sword to strike down the nations.  On His robe and on His thigh He has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS – Revelation 19:11-15.

 

The antichrist and the false prophet are captured and thrown alive into the lake of fire. Their armies are killed with the sword that comes out of the mouth of the rider on the horse. All the birds gorge themselves on their flesh – Revelation 19:17-21.

 

A temporary restraining order for Satan:
An angel comes down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and having a great chain in his hand.  He seizes Satan and binds him for a thousand years.  He throws him into the Abyss, locks and seals it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years are ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time – Revelation 20:1

 

Jesus then sets up His earthly kingdom:
 
From the survivors of the seven years of tribulation, Jesus sorts the sheep from the goats. The sheep being those who accepted Jesus as their Messiah, the goats are those who during all that trouble still refused to accept Jesus Christ. The goats are put into the holding tank, Hades, for the next 1000 years. Those who have accepted Jesus are welcomed into the millennial kingdom , and they will repopulate the earth.

 

Satan meets his final end:
Satan will be bound in the abyss for 1000 years, but then will be released for one last rebellion. Revelation 20:7-10 describes an event that troubled me greatly for some time.  When I first read it, I thought how could all those people choose to join forces with Satan after living in the presence of Jesus Christ for 1000 years?

 

Revelation 20:7-10  says that when the thousand years are over, Satan is released and immediately goes out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth.  He gathers them for battle. The number of them is like the sand on the seashore.  How can that many people be deceived by Satan after being under the rule of Jesus Christ himself, in person, for 1000 years

 

The reason Satan is able to deceive people:
The Holy Spirit opened my understanding.  It’s the same today: there are people who accept the truth of Jesus Christ mentally, but their hearts are closed to Him. That’s the way it will be during those 1000 years: people will bow to Jesus Christ, accept His rule, accept the fact that He is the Son of God and the messiah, but in their hearts they don’t want Him to be their ruler.  He will rule the nations with an iron scepter – Revelation 19:15; Psalm 2:9. Rebellion is in their hearts. The moment Satan appears, they see their chance to get out from under the rule of Jesus Christ. The number of them is like the sand on the seashore – that is a huge amount of people.

 

Where did all those people come from?
Where did all those people come from if 6 BILLION people are killed during the seven years of tribulation?  The people who survive the tribulation and enter the millennial kingdom are human beings who pro-create. A lot of people will be born during those 1000 years. A staggering number of them will have closed their hearts to Jesus Christ. They will long for a way to get out from under His rule.

 

Revelation 20:7-15:  When Satan is released it is easy for him to deceive those people who want a way out of what they have.  So a multitude rush to follow him in his final rebellion. They will follow Satan and surround Jerusalem, again with the aim of destroying God’s people. But fire comes down from heaven and devours them. The devil is finally thrown into the lake of burning sulfur. The anti-Christ and the false prophet are already there, and if anyone’s name is not found written in the book of life, he/she will be thrown into the lake of fire also – Revelation 20:15.

 

I don’t mean to sound sarcastic, but when you think about it, those people will be with a lot of lousy company in a lousy environment.  And it will never end.

 

After the final rebellion, the White Throne Judgment takes place:
The dead, great and small stand before the great white throne, and books are open. Another book will be opened, which is the book of life. The sea gives up its dead, Hades gives up the dead that are there and each person is judged according to what he/she has done – Revelation 20:11-15.

 

If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he/she is thrown into the lake of fire – Revelation 20:15.  All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all those whose names were not written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world will worship the antichrist – Revelation 13:8.

 

The books:
So we see that there is the book of life, and there is the book of life belonging to the Lamb. They are two different books.  What’s the difference? Click here for more detail about the books.

 

The book of life:
At birth every person’s name is recorded in the book of life and it stays there until the moment a person chooses to reject the truth of Jesus Christ. At some point in time, the person will make the decision to pursue the ways of the world, and say “No” to the message of Jesus Christ for the last time.  How many times he/she said “No,” who knows? But at some point God knows the person means the final “No thank you, I don’t need Jesus.”  At that point the person’s name is erased from the book of life.  His/her fate is sealed forever.

 

The Lambs book of life:
Whenever a person accepts the truth of Jesus Christ his/her name is recorded in the Lamb’s book of life forever.  Also, our name remains written in the book of life.  We didn’t reject Jesus Christ. Most likely, each of us said “No” a number of times; thankfully God knew our hearts were not closed.  He knew we would eventually say “Yes” to Jesus.  He made sure we kept hearing the message of Jesus Christ.  Finally, each of us said “Yes” to Jesus, so we will not be before the white throne.  We accepted God’s sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins, ALL our sins, so at the time of the Rapture we go before the Judgment seat of Christ to receive rewards for what we did in His service, or loose rewards.

 

The book of works:
Another book was opened for each of us at the beginning of our lives, it is the book of works. Every thing we did, good and bad was recorded, especially the times we mistreated the people of God, Christian or Jew.

 

What are your chances of getting into heaven if you end up before the white throne?
At the white throne judgment seat, a person who stands before the One sitting on the throne will know his/her fate is already sealed.  God knows that if you are before that throne, your name is not written in the book of life.

 

What happens next?  Your book of works is opened and the One sitting on the white throne chooses the best you’ve ever done. Those things you thought would give you a chance to get into heaven.  He holds up your best self-efforts to compare them with the Sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ. At that instant, you realize your best efforts are no better than filthy rags when compared to the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  In agony, you will know God’s judgment is just.  You had many opportunities to accept Jesus Christ but you refused every time.  You are then pitched into fiery lake of fire, the place of – NEVER ENDING torment.  Not smart!

 

God’s Wisdom:
God’s Word warns: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing; they perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved – 1 Corinthians 1:18;  2 Thessalonians 2:10. But to us who are being saved, the message of the cross of Jesus Christ is the power of God to save us from the lake of eternal torment.

 

God is just; He demonstrated His justice:
There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in His blood.  He did this to demonstrate His justice, because in His forbearance He had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished – He did it to demonstrate His justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus – Romans 3:22-26.

  • Justified: declared not guilty because Jesus took our guilt upon Himself
  • Redemption: restored to original state of innocence before God
  • Atonement: the price required was paid for us – the blood of Jesus Christ
  • Forbearance: mercy, they didn’t receive what they deserved

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” – Acts 4:10

 

  • Salvation: saved from destruction. Picture this: you are standing in line waiting to board your flight out, but inside you sense a warning, “Don’t get on that plane, it’s going to crash on take off.”  You decide to heed that inner warning; you go and reschedule your flight. That plane you didn’t get on crashes on take off and everyone onboard is killed.  You were saved from that destruction; that is a description of the act of salvation. God wants to save you from eternal destruction and the trouble coming upon the earth. Are you going to listen?

To believe in Jesus Christ is your choice my friend, I wouldn’t wait if I were you.  Trust me when I say, “You don’t want to be left behind!” David

An Invitation: In case some of you have not accepted God's free gift of eternal life you still  can. If you haven't accepted God's free gift yet, but you would like to, simply pray this prayer: Jesus Christ, I believe you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross for the forgiveness of my sins.  I admit that I'm a sinner; please cleanse me of my sins and come into my life.  I want to be born again.  Please show me how real you are.  Also baptize me with the Holy Spirit; I want the power to live a new life.  Thank you for accepting me.

If you are still a skeptic, you can pray this prayer: "God, I'm a skeptic, if all of this is true about Jesus Christ  help me understand so that I can accept it. Help me receive the gift of New Birth your purchased for me."  To read more about the gift of eternal life  click here.

In an instant, it may have already have happened, hundreds of millions of people are going to disappear from the earth.  Hard to believe isn't it? But it's true, every born again Christian is going to suddenly disappear.

Jesus Christ is coming back to take His people to be with Him forever, but if you were left behind you need to know what happened and what to do Click here

P.S.

My friend, Jesus did it all for you and me.  Salvation is a gift to be received! It is NOT a religious reward to be earned.  It is NOT a Christian belief or doctrine.  It really is your ticket to heaven and the flight out is about to take off! Some people sarcastically call it “the great escape.”  You betcha!  “Yes” and “Amen” –

2 Corinthians 1:20; 1 Thessalonians 5:9,10.

 

Soon, those of us who have accepted God’s free gift of salvation will hear Jesus shout “Come up here!” We’ll hear the trumpet call of God, the voice of an archangel and quicker that you can say “poof” we will all meet the Lord in the air to be with Him forever.  Knowing that, how can anyone resist the invitation to join us in the air?  It’s a gift to be received, there is nothing you can do to earn it.  There are no miles to be redeemed, and it’s a one way trip I don’t want to miss. Join me my friend. The wonders of heaven will never cease to be a wonder to us. Beauty we can’t even imagine; never ending opportunities for adventure; music, color, smells, and sights that will always thrill us, they will never fade.
