What if Nothing Happens in September?!

September 2015  blood moon Pope

Commentary By:  Gordon King

This month is more than half over and there are many signs which have not happened as of this date, such as the blood-red moon tetrad, and the Popes visit to Congress.

Many believers expect something big to happen this month or the month after, such as the rapture of the church or a major war with Israel in the Middle East.  But what if nothing happens?  What then?  Do believers get discouraged and lose faith?  Do many even go so far as to walk away from the faith?

No one knows the hour of Christ’s return for His church, Jesus Himself tells us that.  So, before we get too excited, lets remember that! 

These signs are just that, “Signs”.  They are here to warn us of the times that we are living in, the end times, the last days, the days before the return of Christ to earth.  They are to lead us to Christ, not drive us away!

And so is bible prophecy, it is written to bring us to God, and to keep us close to Him, not to deter us or anyone else away from God.

Bible prophecy is not written to frighten believers, on the contrary, it is written to give us hope, to show us that when these things come to pass we might have more faith.  However, with that being said, it can frighten the unbelievers!  Many of which may turn away and run from God, instead of seeking Him out.  This my friends is a shame!

We all see things from our own perspective, we all have different experiences in life, and not one of us sees things exactly the same way.  Some of us are more mature in our faith, and can see things more clearly than others.  Some of us have been given more clarity and insight from the Lord in different spiritual things.  We can all teach and learn from each other.

Those of the world however, do not have the eyes to see, nor the ears to hear the truth.  Not until the Lord gives it to them.  They may not understand what is happening in the world and to the world.  They will try to rationalize things, and use the standards of the world to make sense of it all.

It is up to us as believers to try and explain things to them from a biblical point of view.  However, we can only do this if the Lord has first given them the ability to see and understand.  Only after He has softened their heart, and given them the eyes to see clearly will they be ready to hear the truth!

So what then can we do to show the world the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ?  How can we tell them that there is hope, there is a better way?  That my friends is where we let the light of Christ shine through us! 

Ours as believers in Jesus Christ is to love, have mercy and kindness, act with forgiveness and grace.  We are to be different from those who are of the world, a peculiar people!

The world is falling apart, but as I see it, it is actually falling into place!  God’s plan and purpose, His will, is in fact happening right before our very eyes.  Like a puzzle being put together one piece at a time.  At first it doesn’t make any sense, but as more pieces are put together, then we can see more of the big picture, until finally when it’s all done, we can see the whole picture, from God’s perspective!

Each and every one of us has a role to play in putting together the puzzle.  The light that shines though us illuminates the pieces of the puzzle, so that we can bring hope that one day the puzzle will be completed.

God has a plan, and God is in control of all things.  Our will may be different from God’s will, and therefore we may get discouraged when what we think should happen does not occur, or at least when we think it should occur.  My point is that if the rapture doesn’t happen within the next month or two, then don’t get discouraged!

God is good, and His ways are perfect!  He is patient and does not want anyone to perish.  We must always remember that when we are impatient with God’s plan.  What we see as right, just may be wrong!  When we think the Lord will return for His church, just may not be when He will actually come!  Remember also that He comes like a thief in the night!

The main thing that we should be concerned with now is leading the lost to salvation!  Performing God’s will on earth as it is in heaven.  Loving those in need, comforting those in pain and suffering, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and sheltering those without a roof over their heads.

God loves us all no matter what we have done in the past or what we do now.  There is nothing that we could do to earn God’s love, or to make God love us more!  God loves us whether or not we are sinners or saved.  This is what the world needs to know.  But they also need to know that without God they will not enter the kingdom of heaven!

Believe me, I want nothing more than for the rapture of the church!  However, there are also many loved ones in the world who most of us do not want left behind.  And for this reason God may tarry.  Besides that, no one knows when He is coming!

Brothers and sisters in Christ, do not be discouraged if bible prophecy does not happen like or when you want it to or think that it will!  Let’s be patient and know that the Lord is perfect in all of His ways.  Know that someday soon we will be in heaven with our Lord and Savior!  Sitting all together at the wedding feast of the Lamb!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. I have been having a feeling something big is going to happen this month but not sure what. Belivers who don’t realise what is going around the world have been blinded by Satan.

  2. There will be no gathering (rapture) UNTO JESUS CHRIST until after the Son of Perdition (satan) sits in the temple (jerusalem) and claims that he is JESUS Christ(anti christ, satan) as stated in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2verse1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord JESUS CHRIST, and by our gathering together UNTO him,……2 verse2 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……2verse3 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……2verse4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called GOD, or that is worshiped; so that he as GOD sitteth in the temple of GOD, shewing himself that he is God……. ..READ ALL OF 2nd THESSALONIANS GOD WANTS HIS CHILDREN TO WAKE UP BEFORE IT’S TO LATE!!!

  3. Nicely said Gordon. Amen!
    It’s all on God’s timetable, we must trust in His providence. I also believe, He wants everyone to know the truth of His Gospel and want’s no one to be caught off guard. Let’s indeed carry the torch of light in our hearts, mind and in our actions. Let’s show we have the fruit of the Spirit in us by our own behavior, in our own corner of the world thereby spreading it forward, if only in appearance… First we attract then we speak of how He’s changed our life around, for no one is perfect… ‘Don’t be discourage but encourage’, He might just be waiting for love ones prayed about to come around… God bless & Maranatha!

  4. I think that a lot of us have this feeling Anonymous, and there are a lot of things happening, a lot of signs. Yet, will there be more? Will there be prophetic events unfolding which many of us are waiting for to happen? No one knows, but we will soon find out!

    God bless!

    I appreciate your belief, however I believe that this is a common misunderstanding among many believers.

    The scriptures do not say “When the man of perdition sits as God in the temple”, it says “Who sits as God in the temple”,

    “4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”,

    these are two very different things. The scripture is telling us of just who this person is, not everything he will do just before the rapture of the church.

    It does say that the “man of perdition”, also referred to as “the lawless one”, will be revealed, it doesn’t say that he will do anything else upon his revealing.

    Read this: 2 Thessalonians 2:8 “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.”

    This verse says that Jesus will consume “the man of perdition or the lawless one” with the breath of His mouth and the brightness of His coming. Does this then mean that once the man of perdition is revealed that Jesus will immediately destroy him? No. It’s just telling us that this will be done. The apostle Paul is telling us that this is the same one that the Lord will do away with upon His second coming, and not at the rapture of the church.

    Verse 2 says that day will not come, what day? The apostle Paul tells us what day, “the gathering together to Him” and the “Day of Christ”!

    The “Day of Christ” is also referred to in scripture as the “Time of Jacobs Trouble”, “The Day of the Lord”, and the “Seven Year Tribulation Period”, at least in part, I also believe that it may include the one thousand year reign of Christ on earth.

    Something to think about my friend. All of us, myself included, must rightly divide the word of God.

    God bless!

  6. Hello, thank you for your response…This is just to give more clarity on who will exhalt himself above GOD in Jerusalem in the very near future as stated in scripture KJV…..2nd Thessalonians 2:4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called GOD, or worshipped; so that he as GOD sitteth in the temple of GOD, shewing himself that he is GOD…….Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!…..14:13 For thou has said in rhine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of GOD: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:..14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the MOST HIGH……Matthew 24:15 When he therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, Let him understand:)24:16Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:…….so who is this self proclaimed exalted one this man of sin, son of perdition…The Greek 3639(Strong’s Concordance)word for “perdition” is “apollumi” which means to fully destroy, die, perish…Apollumi is also Appolyon which is SATAN’s name in Revelations 9:11; the devil, the Great Red Dragon, the False Messiah, the Anti CHRIST will be here before the true CHRIST returns as stated in 2nd Thessalonians…. The TRUE JESUS CHRIST comes after…..1st Corinthians 51Behold, shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,…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…..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…..As stated in GOD’S WORD, JESUS CHRIST THE TRUE MESSIAH RETURNS IN THE 7th Trump….GUESS WHO COMES IN THE 6th Trump; (satan, antichrist)…. WE ARE NOW IN THE 5th trump…..Preparation For what’s happening now & for what’s to come will be determined on your FAITH, TRUST & OBEDIENCE TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER & HIS SON OUR SAVIOR LORD & KING JESUS CHRIST….MAY GOD TOUCH YOU ALL WITH HIS WISDOM AND LEAD YOU ALL INTO THE PATH OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS IN JESUS NAME……LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU…AMEN

    Actually, the Messiah does not return at the 7th trumpet blown by angels, scripture does not say that. What it says is at the “Last Trump”, The Trump of God. This is not the same as the 7th trumpet spoken of in Revelation. There are “Two” trumps of God spoken of in the bible, the “first” trump (which is God’s voice not trumpets blown by angels) was in the book of Exodus when God spoke to the children of Israel at Mount Sinai, the “second” has not happened yet, but will at the rapture of the church.

    Read Revelation 4:10 “10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,”

    God’s voice is as a trumpet, also known as the trump of God. This verse I believe is a representation of John being raptured into heaven.

    We are not yet in the Tribulation period my friend, if we were then we would know who the anti-Christ was, there would have already been a 7 year agreement with Israel, this has not yet happened.

    Take care and God bless!

  8. Actually even without the biblical rapture of the church, there are many believing saints going home to be with Jesus every day around the world, In a sense this is their rapture. Even at any second, any one of us could be separated from this physical body and called home to be with the Lord without calendars, blood moons, trumpets and all the predictions in the equasion, just death and then the glory of heaven. I’m thinking about all the Christians who are living their life every day without the knowledge of this month in particular and all the events on the calendar, are they any less considered for salvation.
    The knowledge of the events of September by some and not others is not a dividing line on salvation, it’s not a thing of the super-saints and the barely saved.
    With that being said, the recent weeks have unfolded around the world biblical prophecies of enormous magnitude, in particular Ezekiel 38 with Russia and Iran establishing a military base together in Syria, The Russian Iranian alliance possibly causing Isa. 17:1 to Damascus to be fulfilled. The migration of refugees to Europe has great significance for the future rise of anti-Christ and the false prophet. America’s turning it’s back on Israel is huge for the ultimate defense and protection of Israel to come directly from God himself.
    Even if there is no rapture or earth shattering events this month, there has been a lot of major stage setting for the rapture of the church to draw nearer than ever before. The speed of prophetic end time events have begun to accelerate this month like never before in history and they won’t slow down from here.
    Thanks Gordon,

  9. Thanks for your comment Ethin!

    I wholeheartedly agree with you about knowing events or not knowing them, they have no credence or effect on our salvation! Once saved always saved! That’s my belief. None of us are better than another, we (believers) are all children of God. There is nothing we could do for God to love us more or less, to make us holier than thou. However, I do believe that the Lord wants us to be watching and ready, and there are many significant events unfolding at this time in history as you have stated, there is no doubt!

    God bless Ethin!
