1 Cor. 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Comfort During the End Times – Day 29

Are the recent news on a possible all out war with Russia and the Ukraine upsetting you? Are you afraid that nuclear war is possible and even on the horizon? It’s possible that this will happen before the Rapture. But how do we deal with that?

Today’s verse sums it up pretty nicely, if you ask me. God does not sleep and He is always aware of what is happening everywhere, let alone with me. What’s the worst thing that can happen? That we’re killed and we go to Heaven? We could die on our way home from grocery shopping. God is faithful all the time! He never changes His mind and His promises are forever!

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

There is no sense in worrying about what has not happened. One thing we can be certain about is that God already knows what’s going to happen and His will is going to be accomplished. His Word will stand firm and nothing can stop prophecy from happening, amen?

Isa 46:10  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

No amount of worrying will stop what is to come in the Tribulation. But to the Christian, we don’t need to worry; the Rapture can happen at any moment and we will be taken out of the turmoil which is about to happen on the entire earth! We can already see the spirit of antichrist at work around us. Our world has gone crazy and that’s with the Holy Spirit’s restraint! Can you imagine just how awful the world will become once the Church is gone and the Holy Spirit’s restraint is removed? Satan and his demons will wreak havoc on this earth and in the hearts of men.

2 Thess 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.

One only has to read the Book of Revelation beginning in Chapter 6 to see that there are grievous judgments awaiting a God-forsaken world! Why would one want to reject a merciful God? It is man’s own stubborn and prideful heart, as old as Cain, that will be his downfall!

The truth and the future of our world is carefully written in the Bible so we could see what was to come. Friend, if you’re not sure where you will spend eternity, please settle the matter. Christian, if you’re not living your life for the Lord, there’s not much time left. We need to give the lost hope as we have hope! Friend, don’t be willfully ignorant of the end times. (2 Peter 3:5) If you are not born-again, confess your sins and repent of them. The time is coming when it will be too late for you to repent. You will remember each opportunity you were given by God to be saved; you will remember each time you laughed it off and ignored it. Please Reader, repent and accept Christ into your life. (Act 16:31Rom 10:9) I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.

The Rapture – Day 19

(2 Th 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.

Good morning! You’ve probably noticed some repetition in my posts. It’s difficult to cover everything in a certain topic and have the post be about five minutes of reading time. Today’s Bible verse is a good example as it deals with the restraining of the Holy Spirit. He not only restrains, but He does so much more. Because of all that His role entails, it helps us to understand the significance of His role during the Tribulation.

I once did a study on the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives and it was such a blessing to me. I’ve listed them below because I believe that it opens our eyes at how significant His role is. For you to interpret 2 Thessalonians 2:7 properly, you need to know what the Holy Spirit does for the Church. Please take a moment to read the bullets and please look up each Bible verse reference:

  • He is a Helper who teaches (John 14:26)
  • He convicts us of sin (John 16:7-8)
  • He dwells within believers (1 Cor. 3:16)
  • He is the source of wisdom, revelation and power (1 Cor. 2:10-11, Acts 1:8, Eph 1:17-18)
  • He guides us into all truth and knowledge of what’s to come (John 16:13-15)
  • He gives spiritual gifts to believers (1 Cor. 12:7-11)
  • He seals believers unto the day of redemption (Eph. 1:13 and 4:30)
  • He helps us in weakness and intercedes for us (Rom. 8:26-27)
  • He makes believers new and gives us eternal life (Rom. 8:10-11)
  • He sanctifies believers and enables them to bear good fruit (Gal. 5:16-25)

Friend, we can easily see the Holy Spirit at work today in the Church, both in history and currently. He restrains (he who now letteth) the devil from totally taking over the world with his evil influence. But once He is taken out of the way, the devil is no longer restrained. Do you understand this? The Tribulation cannot begin until the Holy Spirit who restrains the power of the evil one “be taken out of the way.” This happens at the Rapture. The Holy Spirit has taken residence in each born-again believer and once His restraint (through every believer) is taken out of the way, those born again believers will be taken out of the way as well. Why do I know this? I know this because Jesus said that the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, will abide with us FOR EVER.

(Joh 14:16)  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

That is why we don’t see the Holy Spirit working in the same manner in the New Testament as we do in the Book of Revelation. His role will be just as it was in the Old Testament. He anointed prophets and worked through them, along with priests, judges and kings. He will do the same with the two witnesses (who will perform great miracles) and the 144,000 men from the twelve tribes of Israel (Revelation 14:4) (who will spread the news of salvation to a wicked world).

Does this excite you, reader? It surely does me! But to the one who is not saved, it is a different story. Friend, it is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved.
