This message that God has given me to share with you my brothers in Christ Jesus, and also with the lost of this world, who do not yet know Jesus as Lord and Savior, is for this day in which we now live. Brothers, when the Holy Spirit prompts you to share parts of this message with a fellow brother, or to a lost soul that you are told, by the Holy Spirit of God to witness to, then use some or all of the following examples given here, or some of your examples that the Holy Spirit gives you as you read the following.
This message concerns what will happen on this earth shortly after we are caught up to meet Jesus in the air, and return with him to heaven, that we may be spared the great tribulation which will shortly come upon the people who are left on this earth to endure the worst that man has ever known. Gods Holy Word tells us that we who know Jesus, and are watching for him will be spared this awful seven year period. But the bible also tells us that not all will escape.
Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
I will carry you through what the days may be like for those who are not caught up with those of us who are both watching, and working, going about God's business in this day.
You will not be allowed to buy or sale anything if you do not take the mark of the beast, either on your hand or forehead. Those of you who will realize that you have missed the rapture, and have seven years of tribulation in front of you will suffer the most. You will be persecuted by the world, or imprisoned, or even put to death, if you refuse to take the mark
Your money, your property, your savings accounts, your investments, etc. will do you no good because you will not be allowed to access them if you do not take the mark of the beast (remember no buying or selling). That which you have obtained on this earth will do you know good during the tribulation period.
You will have no job. You will not be allowed to earn any money. You can buy no gasoline for your automobiles, and if you owe for that automobile you can no longer make payments on the vehicle because they will not accept your money, (foreclosure is coming).
You will have only the food that is currently in your house and you will not be able to buy more. If you have a garden you can use it only until you have gathered the last of it, or someone who had no food has stolen it from you.
You will only have your home until the next payment is due and then foreclosure is coming, and you and your family will be evicted. When this happens you and your family will be homeless, and live as the homeless do. If you have family who owns their house you might be invited to stay with them, but this is not very likely, because they only have a little food left for themselves if they will not take the mark of the beast. After a few weeks those lucky property owners who have their property paid for will have no electricity,no water, no sewer, no food, no jobs, no automobiles, no money and no way to get any, etc. A portable generator will do you no good because you can not purchase the gasoline to run it if they do not take the mark of the beast.
Are you beginning to get the picture. Allow me to continue.
You or a family member gets ill. Will you walk to the urgent care, hospital, or doctors office. (No you won't because it would be a waste of your shoe leather, and remember you only have enough shoes and clothes that you can carry with you and you must take care of them.) They would not treat you when you arrived because you have not taken the mark of the beast. Now if this illness is life threating then you are your family member will die. The lost world will tell you that all you have to do is take the mark and then you can save your family from certain death. Your extended family and neighbors will tell you that if you would only take the mark that you would be able to keep your job, house, automobiles, money, and all of your possessions. They will tell you that if you don't do this you and your family will die. When you refuse once again they will tell you not to come around them any more for you refuse to help yourself. As you turn to walk away you think, 'no helping myself is what got us here.'
You will have no source of communication, in that you now have no working televisions, radios, Ipads, cell phones, or computers. All of these require either recharging, or electricity and you have none. Not to mention monthly service fees, and remember you can not buy or sell anything, and that includes all of the conveniences that you take for granted now.
You and your family will be in constant danger from thieves. There will be many who will kill you for what you have managed to hide away. Remember that the lost have taken the mark and can sell everything that they can steal. Just think about this present world. There are those who now do home invasions and steal for drug money. Those who kill for property and possessions in this day. The number of these people will be multiplied to an infinite number during this seven year period of tribulation. They will claim the contents of every home or business which was left by those of us who were caught up, and will strip them bare. You will be as a wanted man, afraid to go our in public because the world will know that you are a Christian by the way you are dressed for your clothes will appear dirty and wrinkled for you wear them for weeks at a time.
You will return to your hiding place and set in the dark listening to your children and wife cry themselves to sleep.They are sick, they are hungry, they are tired, and so much more. How much longer can you say no to the mark of the beast. You here horrible stories of Christians being beheaded for not taking the mark of the beast. You say to your self, 'I must stay strong and not give in to the pain and suffering that my family and I endure. For this is my last chance to get it right.
Everywhere you look you see people living their lives. Their children are not hungry, they have a nice warm house to go home to. When they are sick they have health care providers to help them recover. They have jobs, money and all that that entails. They appear happy and content as you and your family use to be. You hear everyone saying, "just take the mark and all will be ok". This constant voice is in your mind saying, 'just take it, go ahead, just take it'.
You managed to save your bible, or perhaps your mothers bible. You search the pages praying that God would show you how to live and help your family to survive. When you read you are shown the truth of His Word. You question why did you not grasp all of this truth when you had the opportunity, for the Word is so very clear to you now. Why did you not know that you were only going through the pretense of being a Christian. Sure you went to Church on Sundays most of the time. You had accepted Christ as your savior, but He was not first in your life, over time you had lost your first love and had backslidden into the ways of this world. You were to busy working and making all that you could in order to fulfill the desires of your heart. But, did you really need that fine house, that new automobile, credit cards, vacations and all the other things that you were acquiring. No! You did not. You ask yourself, 'how could I have been so foolish'?
Your only hope now is to live in this world until you die of some disease or plague that is rampant. Or are caught and killed and made an example to the others who refuse to take the mark of the beast. If you die knowing Jesus as your Lord and Savior having repented of your sins and iniquities, then you may receive that second chance to escape the rest of the tribulation period, but this will be your last chance for salvation.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
Revelation 3:10 Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.
Revelation 7:14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Revelation 14:9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand,
Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Luke 21:36 But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Matthew 24:36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,
Revelation 20:4 Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven;
2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.
6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity (which is love), which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
I have said this before, and now say once more with the greatest since of urgency. Repent of your sins, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and go about doing His work before it is to late my brother. Love your brothers in Christ Jesus, love the lost of this world and lead them to Jesus.
God Bless you my brothers,
HVM - C11215
