“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
Many Christian prophecy teachers (and students) believe that the Psalm 83 War can happen before the war described in Ezekiel 38, and all agree that the Rapture can happen at any moment.
In the Holy Bible, the last 7 years before Jesus returns are referred to as the Tribulation. This period of time begins when the AntiChrist confirms a peace treaty between Israel and the nations or the many people other than Israel. This man will appear to be a peace maker, but according to God's word he will be a liar and will destroy many with peace. 3 1/2 years after the peace treaty is confirmed he will enter the rebuilt Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to be God, and will perform apparent 'miracles' that many will marvel at, but in reality, he will be filled with the spirit of the Devil himself. It will be Hell on Earth during the last 3 1/2 years before Jesus returns.
When Jesus returns He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
If you haven't yet put your trust in Jesus, do so while there is still time. God is a loving God, but also a God of justice and righteousness. In a quiet place, confess to God that you are a sinner because you have broken His laws and that you want His forgiveness by receiving His free gift of salvation. Seek the truth and you will find it. Jesus Christ paid the price for your sin with His very blood, believe it. He died for you but He also conquered death and rose from the dead. Ask God to show you that He is Faithful and True and you too will step into eternal paradise at the appointed time.
“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you,and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
"Thus says the Lord God:
'Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone,and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own Land."
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.
Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.
2 Peter 3:10-13
Up to a point, God's judgement is His mercy, but many people don't see
it that way. What I mean is that God is long suffering or very patient with people. Many times God has used judgement in the form of death, famine, natural disasters, or attacks from the enemy to get the attention of His people and motivate them to acknowledge His existence and cry out to Him. In His righteous anger God could very easily wipe out all mankind, but His love for His creation overides the requirements of the Law, ... this is mercy. However, for every mortal there comes a point in time or in their life where they run out of second chances to repent or turn to God and live their lives according to His ways.
I believe God gave me a scriptural revelation one
night while driving on the freeway, here it is:
The body of Jesus Christ was risen as a new, incorruptible,
glorified body early on the 3rd Day. So it will be with
the Body of Christ today, which is the Church. On the
3rd day the body, that is the church of true believers,
will be given new incorruptible bodies and will rise to
meet Christ in the air. The Rapture is nearer than ever,
but do not give any attention to anyone who says they
know the day or the hour, because God's Word says no one,
not even the angels, know what the day or the hour is....but
I believe that the 3rd day has already begun.
Come, let us return to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces
but he will heal us;
he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. After
two days he will revive us;
on the third day
he will restore us, that we may live in his presence.
2 Peter 3:8
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the
Lord a day is like a thousand years, and
a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not
slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.
He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but
everyone to come to repentance.
2000 years = 2 days to the Lord
2000 years since Christ is right about now.

the time of the end, a body of men will be raised
up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies,
and insist upon their literal interpretation,
in the midst of much clamor and opposition."
Sir Issac Newton
all the saints and Elect of God are gathered,
prior to the Tribulation that is to come, and
are taken to the Lord lest they see the confusion
that is to overwhelm the world because of our
the Syrian, A.D. 373
What should we do while we wait for the Lord's return?
- Keep God's Word, don't just read it, that is be Hearers & Doers of the Word.
- Walk in the Light, separate yourself from the world.
- Please God by the way you live.
- Witness to others, like Enoch who was raptured, tell
people "the Lord is coming"
- Love the sinner but hate the sin
- Persevere, look forward, don't turn back to the life
- Be Humble
- Be Holy
- Be Blameless, make every effort to stay blameless and
- Be Watchful for the return of the Lord.
- Pray always
"Dear God in Heaven, please help me to live my life
in such a way that it is pleasing to you. Please consider
me worthy to escape the time that is coming to test this
world. In the name of Jesus, my Lord, I pray. Amen."
