The first post below concerns the fact that there is no evidence of a real revival going on in America, or anywhere else right now, which is why I made the second post, where I warned that I do not see God blessing America with Donald Trump as President unless there is a drastic change in the spiritual awareness among the citizens of America, and my first post summarizes why I don't see this happening before the Rapture. Then, in the final post, I discuss the fact that the true believers in Christ - who are in this world but are not of it - are following God's Moral Law or Commandments, and are not agreeing with their satanic government's approval of Gay Marriage and Abortion because both are morally wrong in the eyes of God. I also make an appeal to atheists and unbelievers to reconsider their positions because where they will spend eternity is truly at stake.
I also followed this post by linking to two more that explain that watching for Christ's literal return in the Rapture and to fight the Battle of Armageddon are a central teaching in true Biblical New Covenant Christianity, and those who are watching for Christ's return are already suffering persecution globally, but that this persecution will escalate even more dramatically after the Rapture.
In addition. I explain how these late comers to salvation will have to suffer enormously before they die, or are rescued from death by a possible Second Rapture just before the bowls of God's Wrath are poured out after the Trumpet Judgments. Following is the first post about the fact that there is likely not going to be any great revival prior to the Rapture:
1. REVIVAL AMONG THE
LAODICEANS NOT IN SCRIPTURE!
Sorry to rain on the Revival in America (and the World) Band Wagon that has been preached by the Elijah List and New Apostolic Reformation people for the past 15 years without a shred of evidence that there really is any revival going on in America or the rest of the world. Instead, we see people who previously had no faith in Christ coming to have faith in Him even amidst heavy persecution, and that is not a revival, which is what happens when apostate or backslidden believers REPENT! I also firmly believe that most of the preachers on the Elijah List and in the New Apostolic Reformation are in the Laodicean Church because they preach a full Prosperity Gospel, and they also charge outrageous amounts for all their deceptive aids and conferences that are meant to help supposed Christians grow in their faith.
The Laodicean or Lukewarm (Prosperity Gospel and New Apostolic Reformation) Church has members in it from around the world. They don't all live in America. In fact, many are in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Russia. But there are also many members in America and around the world from the persecuted and poor Church of Philadelphia or Brotherly Love, which is identified as the Bride of Christ connected to the New Jerusalem in Revelation Chapter 3. This means that it is the only Church where all of it members will be taken in the Rapture.
The Church of Philadelphia is full of God's relatively poor financially, but spiritually devoted followers that are scattered throughout the Earth. These faithful servants of God can be seen as the Wheat in the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares, in which the whole Earth is envisioned as large fields of choice wheat that have been infested with many tares or weeds trying to choke out the wheat. These tares or weeds depict the unsaved, the lost, and the arrogant people in the Laodicean Church that will be left behind, along with many from four of the other five churches outside of the Churches of Philadelphia and Laodicea mentioned in the Book of Revelation.
Also according to the prophecies in the Bible, there is absolutely no indication that there will be a revival of any kind immediately before or after the Rapture of the Bride of Christ and the Wise Virgins. Instead, Yahshua told His disciples that there would be many false teachers, and much apostasy or lawlessness in the Last Days:
~*~ Matthew 24:9-12 ~*~ “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”In addition to Yahshua's clear statement of the deteriorating spiritual climate prior to the Rapture found in Matthew 24, the Apostle Paul told his spiritual son Timothy that Last Days before Christ comes again will be extremely wicked and perilous:
~*~ 2 Timothy 3:1-5 ~*~ “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.”
~*~ Revelation 13:3-8 ~*~ “And all the world marveled and followed the beast (i.e. the antichrist leaders of the United Nations). 4 So they worshiped the dragon (i.e. Satan, who is working through his minions in the UN, USA, the UK and NATO) who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” 5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”(UPDATE 10-18-2016) I just added Revelation 13:3-8 to this article to stress the fact that there is not going to be any obvious victory or revival among God's people until they are taken in the Rapture to Heaven. This victory will be fully realized when these glorified saints come back on the clouds with Yahshua to fight the Battle of Armageddon. Although many believers rightly attribute the total fulfillment of all the events described in Revelation Chapter 8 through 19 to the Great Tribulation, the governing bodies that will create this evil world system that will persecute and overcome the saints is already in place, and it is already overcoming the saints in every nation!
This is being done through the use of Liberal lawmakers, Liberal schools, Radical Islamic Terrorists and disgruntled Third World illegal immigrants that are invading the West at an unprecedented rate in order to break the backs of the nations that were built on a Christian foundation. Sadly, these nations are no longer Christian due to the Liberal, Communistic political machine set up by Satanists, the Elite, Masons, and Luciferians in the US, UK and the UN that clearly hate God, His children, and His Law. Furthermore, the United Nations, which is the major governing body in the world today, fits the description of the Beast from the Sea perfectly, as I explained in the following article linked to below:
The attacks on Christianity and Judaism, and Christian and Jewish moral principles that can be seen all around the world today are clear signs that the Dragon of Revelation that signifies the Devil is overcoming the saints by those who worship the Beast. These wicked Satan-worshipers are following all the dictates of the UN, including its hatred of the tiny Jewish nation of Israel. Countless UN Resolutions have attacked and attempted to divide Israel, and they have also succeeded in painting Israel as an evil state that owes much to the Palestinians and surrounding nations, when the exact opposite is true in most respects.
This widespread lawlessness of the current day is only going to continue to escalate, and when the Holy Spirit is removed with the born again believers that are sealed by the Spirit of God, all hell is going to break looses on the Earth. In fact, evil, suffering and despair will rise like never before in human history, and the few that do not succumb to it and take the Mark of the Beast will be hunted and killed like animals. Sadly, the majority of people will be so evil that they will never repent, no matter how horrible God's Wrath against them will get! (End of Update) This is why the Book of Revelation repeatedly says that those left behind will not repent:
~*~ Revelation 9:20-21 ~*~ “But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
~*~ Revelation 16:9-11 ~*~ “And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory. 10 Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. 11 They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.”Although I think some from among the Foolish Virgins that are left behind will wake up after the Rapture, and will not be deceived, there won't be much time for revival for them as they will soon be fleeing into the wilderness to escape the Beast system, and struggling to survive there with no money or resources, and in a world that will literally be crumbling into catastrophic ruin around them as God's Wrath is poured out.
~*~ Acts 17:10-12 ~*~ “Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night toSince there is not one New Testament prophetic reference that indicates that there will be a Revival in America or elsewhere prior to the Rapture, we must discard it as false - NO MATTER WHAT WE THINK THE HOLY SPIRIT IS SAYING! After all, there are lying and deceiving spirits called demons that can masquerade as the Holy Spirit, and that is why Scripture tells us to test the spirits:
. When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, AND SEARCHED THE SCRIPTURES DAILY TO FIND OUT WHETHER THESE THINGS WERE SO. 12 Therefore many of them believed, and also not a few of the Greeks, prominent women as well as men.” Berea
~*~ 1 John 4:1 ~*~ “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”The only method we have to accurately test these spirits, and the preachers that teach us, is to see how their word measures up to what Scripture tells us. If their word disagrees with Scripture, then we must discard it as false. That is why I keep admonishing believers to stop hoping in a revival before the Rapture on Facebook, and in my ministry blog articles. According to the Scriptures I quoted earlier in Matthew, and Revelation, there is no End Time Revival, and if there is even a small one, it will not come until after the Rapture, and will likely be very limited in scope!
2. THE TRUMP PROPHECIES -
A PROPHETIC WARNING!
I really like Donald Trump, and I really want America to be Great again. But there's one thing missing from all of these prophecies that have been surfacing all over the internet and You Tube claiming that God has chosen Donald Trump, and that God is working through Trump. As such, these prophecies are making outrageous claims, which include the following: that Trump will be the next President of the United States, that he will put a stop to the corruption in the US Government, that he will re-establish good relations with Israel as their protector, that he will make good trade deals that will benefit Americans with new jobs and prosperity, and that he will lead America to be great again in the eyes of Americans, and the world.
These prophecies sound wonderful, and they certainly are geared to fill those in despair with hope and faith. But those that are grasping onto these prophecies for hope are missing the fact that the majority of the American people have not, and will not repent before God! Instead, many of them are still brazenly using drugs and alcohol to pleasurably alter their perception of reality. Many of them are also engaging in sexual immorality such as homosexuality, cross-dressing, incest, adultery, and pornography, and many of them are turning a blind eye to the murder of millions upon millions of the unborn as abortions continue to go unchecked, and are even encouraged.
In addition, many Americans are not being taught that they need to ask God to forgive them and make them born again so that they will walk in the ways of righteousness through His Son's Spirit living in them. In short, they are not being encouraged to repent and accept Christ's sacrifice for their sins so that God will heal and bless our land because of our sincere remorse, and our desire to turn from our wicked ways, and love God and one another. Although there is a large segment of Americans that are repentant and are imploring God to help them and have mercy on their nation, they are NOT paying attention to what the Scriptures say regarding the End Times, which includes the fact that there will be widespread unrest, turmoil, apostasy and wickedness just before Christ;s return in the Rapture, not peace and prosperity!
Born again believers need to face the fact that many so called believers in the Church today that live in America and around the world are lukewarm in their faith, and will therefore be rejected by Christ when He comes for His Bride and the Wise Virgins. The lukewarm are full of pride and arrogance, convinced of their superiority and blessing by God - either because of their wealth and enjoyment of life. or because they think they deserve these things, and are seeking after them. Meanwhile, many of these same lukewarm believers are disregarding God's Moral Law! They are living in sin by ignoring the plight of the poor and unsaved, and seeking after pleasure and comfort instead. This is why the Laodicean Church is described in the following way by God:
~*~ Revelation 3:16-19 ~*~ “So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked - 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”Despite God's call to the Lukewarm Church to repent and seek to please God with moral living and good works, many of them are still ignoring His call. Those who refuse to hear Him are still seeking pleasure rather than holiness by becoming engrossed in ungodly forms of entertainment, by not helping the poor even when they have the means, by having sex outside of marriage, by using drugs and alcohol to find enjoyment by escaping reality, and by selfishly using birth control and having abortions to get rid of unwanted babies without considering that they are violating God's Will, and the true purpose of life and sex, which is NOT recreation and lust, but brotherly love and procreation.
I believe this is why God is allowing Satan to overcome the Tribulation Saints, just as the Book of Revelation says will be the case. I believe this process of the saints being overcome has already begun. In fact, I believe that the Fifth Seal was opened with the rise of Radical Islam, and its persecution and martyrdom of those in the Church of Smyrna, which represents the Churches in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. These are the saints that the Beast or United Nations, headed by the USA - and US President Obama in particular - has overcome by creating the rise of Radical Islam and ISIS with their warmongering and tampering of the nations in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. I wrote the article linked to below to explain why I firmly believe this:
The following Scripture identifies the Beast as the entity that will overcome the saints:
~*~ Revelation 13:1, 5-8 ~*~ “And I saw a beast (i.e. the United Nations) rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name...” “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months (i.e. 3-1/2 years). 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life...”This describes part of the situation today, although the Church is still here. The saints that are being overcome by the Beast today all over the world are NOT of the Laodicean Church, but are of the Church of Smyrna and the Church of Philadelphia or Brotherly Love. These Churches are full of God's Love, Mercy and Holiness. But the Church of Brotherly Love is the only one that will be fully delivered from the Great Tribulation by being taken in the Rapture before being martyred like those in the Church of Smyrna. In addition, a handful of Wise Virgins from each of the other Churches outside of the Church of Smyrna (which is full of Martyrs that will be resurrected after the Tribulation) will be taken in the First Rapture, and we are fast approaching the opening of the Sixth Seal, when the Rapture will occur, and God's Wrath will be poured out upon the entire world.
So I ask you to consider this fact, and realize that God never once blessed Israel when they were steeped in sin and violating His Laws! Instead, He chastised them by withdrawing His protection, blighting them with droughts, pestilences (deadly disease outbreaks), whirlwinds (tornadoes), floods, and droughts that killed off their livestock and crops, and allowed Israel's enemies to triumph over them. Open you eyes, and you will see that this is exactly what is happening in America and around the world today, and it is a sure sign from God that He is judging America and the world for their sins, just as He has done throughout the ages. But do not confuse God's judgment for His Wrath! God's Wrath will not just affect small pockets of the world like the calamities of today are doing. Instead, God's Wrath will consist of one cataclysm after another that will have disastrous global affects.
So, even if Donald Trump wins the next election, and that election is even allowed to happen because we are in the season of the Rapture and Second Coming of Christ, do you think God is going to bless America, and allow it to be the envy of the world again if its current President has given Radical Islam its power to destroy the saints, and the wicked people that love and follow Obama still shun God's ways, and make a constant mockery of His laws with their immorality? I'm sorry, but God does not work that way, even in this Age of Grace! Because, without repentance, there is no forgiveness. Indeed, true repentance only comes when we feel remorse or shame for our sins, and feel the need to accept Yahshua's blood sacrifice to erase the blood guilt that God demands from each of us to pay for our sins :
~*~ Hebrews 9:22-28 ~*~ “And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission (i.e. forgiveness). 23 Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; 25 not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another— 26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”
3. WHERE DO YOU WANT
TO SPEND ETERNITY?
According to God's Law, upon which all laws in the United States used to be based at one time, any sex outside of marriage by either sex is a sin or act of rebellion against God's Moral Law. In the Bible, this sin is called fornication and sexual immorality, and it can keep anyone engaging in it out of Paradise or Heaven if they do not repent of it, and turn away from doing that sin. Furthermore, according to the same Word of God, murder of an unborn child - or any human being for that matter - is a sin that was punishable by death at one time, and it can also send a person to the fiery place of torment called Hell forever if it is not repented of by asking God for forgiveness, accepting the sacrifice of God's Son Jesus or Yahshua on the Cross, and making amends for one's wrong-doing whenever possible.
So, even if you don't believe in God, think of this for a moment. What if God does exist, and Hell is a real place? What if the feeble scope of a human intellect that believes in Evolution and the Big Bang, and denies a Special Creation by an eternal, all-loving, and all-knowing God is wrong on the matter, and one's actions in this life will have everlasting consequences in Heaven or Hell? Where do you want to spend eternity if it does exist for us, and are you willing to wager your temporary pleasure in engaging in sexual immorality and infant murder in this life with the apostate government's sanction and approval if it means that you will pay for it in a terrible place of intense suffering and pain in eternity for spitting in God's face, and going your own way?
We all have the choice to either follow God's loving Moral Laws that were put in place to foster the love of one's neighbor and oneself, or to reject them and ignore their purpose, which is to keep people from hurting one another, and hurting God in the process. God's Moral Law, which tells us not to lie, murder, steal, and lust after or covet other people's possessions or mates, and to love God and all of His creation with all of our hearts, was put in place to foster love, kindness, peace and brotherhood between all mankind, and if we all followed the Ten Commandments, and Christ's Law to love Him and our neighbors (which includes people and animals) as ourselves, the world would be a far more peaceful and pleasant place to live in. In fact, it would be the Utopia we all wish for.
But this is never going to happen until Christ has literally returned, and is literally sitting on His Throne in Jerusalem! Until then, all true believers in Christ will suffer persecution and tribulation in this life, and there are no guarantees that we will not have to die for our faith before the Rapture. See my posts about the fact that the Second Coming of Christ is a central teaching of our faith, that we are already suffering tribulation, and that we are also very near to the time of the Rapture by clicking on the article links below:
