2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 tells us:
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 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. 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; 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, showing himself that he is God.”
What we are seeing in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 is that THAT MAN OF SIN / THE SON OF PERDITION must BE REVEALED before the “Reaping”
Matthew 24:29-31 tells us:
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall THE SUN BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON SHALL NOT GIVE HER LIGHT, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with A GREAT SOUND OF A TRUMPET, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
What we are seeing in Matthew 24:28-31 is the events of the 6th seal of Revelation followed by a trumpet that signals the “Reaping”.
1 Corinthians 15:51-57 tells us:
“Behold, I shew you A MYSTERY; We shall not all SLEEP, but we shall all be changed, 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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
What we are seeing in 1 Corinthians 15:51-57 is that AT THE LAST TRUMPET the “Reaping” will happen.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 tells us:
“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: 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.”
What we are seeing in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 is that there will be THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL, and with the TRUMP of God at the “Reaping”.
Jube 9 tells us:
“Yet MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”
What we are seeing in Jude 9 is that MICHAEL is THE ARCHANGEL.
Daniel 12:1-3 tells us:
“And at that time shall MICHAEL stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a TIME OF TROUBLE, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time[GREAT TRIBULATION]: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that SLEEP in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”
Revelation 10:7 tells us:
“But in the days of the VOICE OF THE seventh ANGEL, when he shall begin to sound, the MYSTERY OF GOD should be FINISHED, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”
If we look up “mystery of God” we get Colossians 2:2.
The MYSTERY OF GOD is the CHURCH and the GOSPEL
even as MYSTERY BABYLON is the FALSE CHURCH and the FALSE GOSPEL.
Note Ephesians 3:9-13 also:
“And to make all men see what is the fellowship of THE MYSTERY, which from the beginning of the world hath been HID IN GOD, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS in heavenly places might be known by THE CHURCH the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In whom we have BOLDNESS AND ACCESS with confidence by the faith of him. Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my TRIBULATIONS for you, which is your glory.”
Note also that 1 Corinthians 15:51-57 above mentions A MYSTERY
What we are seeing is that MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL will sound the SEVENTH and LAST TRUMPET of God in which the MYSTERY of THE CHURCH and THE GOSPEL will be FINISHED.
That means that we will be here for the 5th and 6th Trumpets.
Luke 10:18-20 tells us:
“And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning FALL FROM HEAVEN. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on SERPENTS and SCORPIONS, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”
What we are seeing in Luke 10:18-20 is a parallel of Revelation 9 & Joel 2 and that Jesus is giving this particular power to His disciples (us).
I’m concerned that people think that the Trumpets are part of God’s Wrath.
NO THEY ARE WARNINGS.
The SEALS = TRIBULATION of the men of this world on Christians, (God uses this time to refine His Church into an army).
The TRUMPETS are when the GREAT TRIBULATION begins with the Beast system coming up out of the bottomless pit, (Revelation 17:8). This is when Jesus gives the key, (Revelation 1:18), of the bottomless pit to Satan, (Revelation 9:1 = Luke 10:18). Then Satan reveals his armies, to pour out his wrath on the Church but he can’t do much because the true Church is ready for him, having been prepared by the Holy Spirit for this by a SEAL.
2 Timothy 2:19-21 tells us:
“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this SEAL, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”
Romans 16:20 tells us:
“And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
It will be like when Mauritius and his army of Christian soldiers withstood the Giant Emperor Maximian.
Revelation 12:11-12 tells us:
“And THEY OVERCAME HIM by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. Therefore REJOICE, YE HEAVENS, AND YE THAT DWELL IN THEM. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
Ephesians 2:4-7 tells us:
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us SIT together IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”
Psalm 2:1-4 tells us:
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their BANDS ASUNDER, and cast away their cords from us. He that SITTETH IN THE HEAVENS shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”
So when the Fallen see that they can’t hurt the true CHURCH, because the true CHURCH are Spiritually safe IN THE HEAVENS, the Fallen will turn on the FALSE CHURCH.
Joel 2:1-11 tells us:
“BLOW YE THE TRUMPET in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for THE DAY OF THE LORD COMETH, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the APPEARANCE OF HORSES; AND AS HORSEMEN, so shall they run. Like the NOISE OF CHARIOTS on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: THE SUN AND THE MOON SHALL BE DARK, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”
Revelation 9:1-19 tells us:
“And the FIFTH ANGEL SOUNDED, and I saw a star FALL FROM HEAVEN unto the earth: and to him was GIVEN THE KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT. And HE OPENED THE BOTTOMLESS PIT; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the SCORPIONS of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not THE SEAL OF GOD in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were LIKE UNTO HORSES prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the SOUND OF CHARIOTS OF MANY HORSES RUNNING TO BATTLE. And they had TAILS LIKE UNTO SCORPIONS, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
And the SIXTH ANGEL SOUNDED, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of THE ARMY OF THE HORSEMEN were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw THE HORSES in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and THE HEADS OF THE HORSES WERE AS THE HEADS OF LIONS; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were LIKE UNTO SERPENTS, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.”
Psalm 91 tells us:
“He that dwelleth IN THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. THOU SHALT NOT BE AFRAID for the terror BY NIGHT; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh IN DARKNESS; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even THE MOST HIGH, THY HABITATION; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. THOUGH SHALT TREAD UPON THE LION AND ADDER: THE YOUNG LION AND THE DRAGON SHALT THOU TRAMPLE UNDER FEET. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I WILL BE WITH HIM IN TROUBLE; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS THE “RED PILL”, HERE IT IS.
THE CHURCH WILL FACE THE GATES OF HELL!
Matthew 16:18b-19 tells us:
“… I will build my church; and THE GATES OF HELL shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Hebrews 4:16 tells us:
“Let us therefore COME BOLDLY UNTO THE THRONE OF GRACE, that we may OBTAIN MERCY, and find GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED.”
Romans 8:35-39 tells us:
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall TRIBULATION, or distress, or persecution, or FAMINE, or nakedness, or peril, or SWORD? As it is written, For thy sake we are KILLED all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither DEATH, nor life, nor ANGELS, nor PRINCIPALITIES, nor POWERS, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, [Amos 9:2] nor ANY OTHER CREATURE [Nephilim?], shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 13:12 tells us:
“The NIGHT IS FAR SPENT, THE DAY IS AT HAND: let us therefore CAST OFF THE WORKS OF DARKNESS, and let us PUT ON THE ARMOUR OF LIGHT.”
Cross-reference to Ephesian 6:10-18
JESUS IS THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD
Belt of Truth = John 14:6
Breastplate of Righteousness = Jeremiah 23:6, 2 Corinthians 6:7
Shoes of the Gospel of Peace = Ephesians 2:13-17
Shield of Faith = Romans 1:16-18
Helmet of Salvation = Isaiah 59:16-17, Ephesians 1:12-14
Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God = Hebrews 4:12-14
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit = Romans 8:26-28, Hebrews 7:25
Romans 13:14 tells us:
“But PUT YE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.”
Philippians 4:13 tells us:
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
2 Timothy 1:12 tells us:
“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”
Revelation 22:20-21 tells us:
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”
