Calm Before The Storm?!

Hello to all!  Peace and Blessings to everyone reading this post!  May the Spirit of the Lord be with you.

I have had the feeling of calm.  A feeling of quietness.  Of stillness.  Like the calm before the storm.  A feeling that something big is coming soon!  Is anyone else feeling this?  For the past six months or so, I have felt that we are getting very close to the return of the Lord.  I now feel that it is getting very, very close.  That Revelation is unfolding quickly before our eyes.  Of course the signs are all around us.  You would have to be blind not to see them.  Yet, so many people, including other Christians just don’t seem to see.  Or they don’t want to see or seem to care.

Why do so many so called Christians not want to believe in Revelation.  That we are living in the end times?  Are they really true believers in Jesus?  Do they read and study God’s word?  If so, then why do they not believe all of it?

Some times I feel so alone.  That I am the only one who believes in the Revelation of the bible.  That Jesus is returning soon and the rapture could happen at any time!  Although I know that there are millions of other Christians who believe as I do.  Yet, I know so many that don’t.  I try and explain things to them, but they do not want to hear it.  They think that I am over the top!  That I am taking the bible too literally.  Blowing things up out of proportion!

I believe in God’s word.  What he tells us in the bible is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  That what he says will happen in the future, and will happen just as he said that it would.  That bible prophecy is infallible.  That all of scripture is the true word of God.  That if you believe any of it, then you must believe all of it or none of it.  If any of it is false, then you must disregard the entire bible!

God is sending us a message.  He is warning the world.  He is telling us all to repent and seek him for salvation.  To live as he intended us to live.  That he is about to pour out his wrath upon the world!  

The Spirit of the Lord is upon us!  We as faithful Christians must warn the world what is coming soon!!!  The Lord is calling all believers to be strong, faithful and courageous.  To pray for his will to be done in us and the world.  To pray for the lost to be saved.  Time is so short brothers and sisters! 

We do not have time to be disagreeing and arguing with each other regarding scripture.  That is not what God wants us to be doing at this time!  We need to hold fast and be steady.  He wants us to fulfill the commands that he has given to each and everyone of us.  To perform the work of our calling.  To continue with his work in faith, mercy and grace!

I pray for God to enlighten us, to fill us with the Holy Spirit for direction, instruction and courage!  To now pour out his Spirit upon the world for revival.  To unite the army of God as one body.  To save lost souls.  To bring back the lost sheep that have wandered away from their Savior.

Praise God and God Bless You all!    Your brother in Christ, Gordon!     😉

Let’s stop the bickering Children of God!

Hey folks, brothers and sisters in Christ.

Hope all is well with everyone.  I pray for God to open everyone’s eyes to the truth before reading this post.  Amen

I am not here to give a feel good, pleasant, how do you do presentation in this post.

I have received several comments on when the rapture will occur or if there will even be a rapture of the church.  I have encountered it on other blogs, websites and in the community as well.

Although I believe that this is a very important event, it is not directly vital to our salvation.

There are those who make accusations of other believers, saying that they are teaching lies about the word of God.  That they are condemning others to Hell, because they believe in a pre-trib or a mid-trib, etc. rapture of the church.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I am getting sick and tired of it.  I can hear God now saying “Put away your petty grievances and do the work that you were commanded to do.  I gave you my Spirit to guide you, enlighten you and speak for you.  Now use it how I intended it to be used or else!!!”

What does matter is the salvation of the lost.  Spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and being a light that shines brightly in a dark world.  How can we be a bright light when we Christians are fighting among ourselves?  It is one thing to disagree, share our thoughts and study the scripture together, but it is a completely different thing to denigrate and make accusations against a brother or sister in Christ.  What kind of example is that to an unbeliever?

Therefore, we must, as children of the Almighty God, respect and encourage one another in our faith with the Lord.  Don’t we all worship the same God?  What on earth are we doing bickering and accusing each other.  I am not saying that all Christians are doing this, but I see it happening way to often.  I feel that God is upset with us for such inane accusatory statements.

We don’t have time to waste.  What does it matter if the rapture is pre, post, mid or no tribulation?  Jesus gave us signs to watch for.  That is what I am doing.  Watching and warning.  That is a command of Jesus.  It is scriptural.  I can quote scripture without any confusion.  It is so very clear.   Others accuse Christians of teaching prophecy and warning of prophetic signs.  This is all scriptural folks.  Jesus told us, commanded us, to keep watch and look for prophetic signs.  Anyone want to argue that with me?!  It is scriptural.  You argue with me on this you are arguing with God!  I can quote scripture:  Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.  There is plenty more where that came from.  If you don’t believe me then study the bible!

I hear people tell me that if I don’t believe in mid or post tribulation then I will not be prepared for what is to come.  Hogwash!  If I am a true believer in Christ then I will be prepared.  I will walk with the Lord daily.  He said in his words to us that he will keep us from the hour of temptation and from his wrath.  Does anyone want to argue that point?!  No, I thought not.  Because I can quote it from right out of the bible.  If anyone argues with me on that statement they are arguing with God.  Because those are his Words, not mine!

I truly believe that some people just want to argue.  Once again, don’t get me wrong here, there is legitimate discussion and study going on, and that is wonderful.  We should be teaching each other and studying the Word of God together as believers.  That is not what I am talking about.

We need to be warriors for Christ!  We need to be strong.  We need to be courageous.  We need to be steadfast.  We need to seek the truth.  We need to see evil and sin for what it is and call it out in the open.  We need to seek the Lord and listen to his Spirit speak to us.  We need to humble ourselves before God Almighty!  We need to serve the Lord.  We need to Love God with ALL of our heart.  

This is not a time to be weary, to fall away.  This is the time to seek the Lord.  Seek and ye shall find saith the Lord!  Ask and ye shall receive.  Blessed are those that keep the prophecies of this book, says God!  I can also quote scripture for this statement.

Darkness is coming, and coming quickly.  God shall provide and protect those that love him.  If you do not already know God than you should do it now.  Before it is too late!

I know that there will probably be many people including other Christians who will not agree with this post.   The Spirit has led me to write these words.  I am not saying that these words are from God.  However, the conviction is from God.

You may not agree with my beliefs in a pre-tribulation rapture.  But, I do!  So I will not be responding to any more comments on the subject.  You can read my “Rapture” page to see why I believe this.   You have every right to disagree with me, and that’s ok.  It does not bother me one bit.  But, if anyone condemns me for it, their post will be deleted!  I DO NOT CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT ME!!!  I only care what GOD thinks about me.  That’s what matters to me!  Pleasing my heavenly Father!

I don’t mean to sound to harsh, but sometimes that is what it takes to get a point across!  Especially when God is getting angry!!!

This is not a game!  This is the real deal.

Let us love one another in peace through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  Let us encourage one another in seeking the Lord and understanding his Word.  Let us work together to bring the lost to salvation!  These are my prayers.  Amen

God Bless everyone reading this post.   Praise God Almighty, give glory to God, serve the Lord Jesus with all of your heart.
