IS PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE TRUE ?

The fact is, Jesus said; “ IMMEDIATLY 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.” (Matthew 24:29-31) SEE: Our class on Matthew Chapter 24 in www.answersintheword.com for more detailed information. I don’t see how Jesus can make it any clearer then when he said “ IMMEDIATLY AFTER THE TRIBULATION”. In fact Pre -Tribulation Rapture doesn’t fit into the Book of Daniel or the Book of Revelations or Any Prophecy in the Bible! The Pre -Tribulation Doctrine is straight from the Pits of Hell from the Devil himself! Jesus said about the Devil, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. “ (John 8:44). Pre -Tribulation Rapture doctrine started in 1830. Today almost all Churches teach Pre – Tribulation Rapture including the Baptists. This false doctrine was started from the writings of John Darby, and it gained great acceptance by the Bible Cemeteries, OH excuse me I mean Seminaries. It took fire and spread rapidly through out the Christian World because no one wants to go through The Great Tribulation including myself. I wish it were true, but as you can see by Studying the Scriptures that is not true ! “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”(Acts 17:11). Are you “MORE NOBLE” ? Do you search the Scriptures Daily to see if these things are so? There will be a Great Confusion in the Church and cause a Great Falling Away by the people who don’t know the Word. “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.” (Matthew 22:29). Many will turn to the Anti- Christ who will be saying he is the Messiah and he will have his false Prophet doing miracles and leading people to believe and follow him. The Devil has his counterfeit plan trying to imitate God’s plan like Jesus had John the Baptist to prepare his way before him. “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 worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4). Be like the people in Daniel 11:32b-35 “but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.” You see Christians need to go through the Great Tribulation. “confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through MUCH TRIBULATION enter into the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22). One of God’s purposes for Christians to go through The Great Tribulation is to “try us and purge us and make us white” as it says in Daniel 11:35. “White” in Hebrew means to purify and purge and clean. When your really going thru it you want to get right and desperate with the Lord God. Be strong in the WORD and FAITH so God can use you in these END TIMES. You can find the Truth about everything you need to know to make it thru this life and more from JESUS CHRIST in www.answersintheword.com in fact if you see anything you don’t agree with and you can prove it by the Scriptures, please let us know so we can change it and edit it. We surely do not want to teach anything that is false doctrine and neither should you or support any teaching that is not true. NOTHING SHORT OF RIGHT IS RIGHT ! This is a very important subject, if it weren’t, Jesus would not have taught about it so much! Remember The 6 Trumpets of The Great Tribulation period and The 7 Vials are divided in half by The Rapture which is The 7th Trump. The Rapture is when Jesus Christ takes the Saved to Heaven and resurrects the bodies of the dead Saved. “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.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). “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.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”(Galatians 1:8. Beloved it is time to get this right !

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

WAR IN HEAVEN

“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” (Ephesians 2:1-3).

A lot of Preachers teach that the Great War in Heaven has already happened, but the Bible says that the Great War In Heaven will not happen until the devil is cast out upon the earth and enters into the Anti-Christ’s body, and raises him from a deadly wound. How can it be a deadly wound if he doesn’t die from it? Right now the devil is allowed to go and stand before the Throne of God in Heaven and accuse the brethren which are all the Christian believers in Jesus Christ. “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Revelations 12:7-9). “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: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” (Daniel 12:1).”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.” (Revelation12:12). The fact is that War in Heaven has been going on along time, since before the creation of the World. It started when the devil rebelled against God. “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”(Isaiah 12:12-14) “There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.” (Ecclesiastes 8:8). Once you join the Lord’s Army there is no discharge after two or four years of service. The Lord expects you to be a lifer engaged in the battles of human souls every day with maybe a little time off for R&R. If you think it is bad now, just wait till Lucifer and his demons and even a third of the angels in Heaven attack God’s people and try and totally destroy Christianity off the face off the earth. So you better get ready and strong in the Lord, and in Faith, and in the Word and the power of his might. It’s time to awake and go on the attack spiritually and quit acting like little babies falling around in the darkness of this world not knowing what is going on. It’s time to grow up Spiritually. “And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed”.(Daniel 11: 31-35).

SAY THIS PRAYER IF YOU WANT TO BE SAVED

Dear Jesus Christ, Please come into my Heart, I now accept you as my Savior, The only begotten Son of God ,I Believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead, Please forgive me of all my sins and fill me with the Holy Spirit, to give me the power to be a witness and to preach the Gospel in all the world. AMEN.

PROOF THAT JESUS IS THE MESSIAH AND THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD !

“Messiah means the Anointed One” in Hebrew. Jesus was anointed by God, and the Holy Spirit came upon him in the form of a Dove. This happened in 26 A.D. When John The Baptist baptized Jesus. “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.” (John 1:29-34). You can read more about this amazing prophecy in detail in our class on Daniel Chapter 9, in www.answersintheword.com

The unsaved Jews are still looking for the Messiah to come. That is why they must rebuild the Temple for the third time, and re-instate their daily sacrifices for atonement for sins. They will never find their Messiah until they receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour ! The Anti-Christ will come soon and proclaim himself as their Messiah and will even have a false Prophet who works miracles who will deceive the people that have not received Jesus Christ The Only Begotten Son of God as their Saviour and Messiah. Jesus was anointed as Isaiah the Prophet predicted, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:1-3). Jesus was the only one to die for our sins and raise from the dead. ”And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;” (Revelation 3:14) Jesus was predesignated in God’s plan before the foundation of the world, in fact Jesus was the first,of God’s creation and he was there with God and the Holy Spirit (The Trinity) when the world and Adam and Eve were created, in fact he even created them with his heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:26). “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1-14).

PROOF THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD ! Part 1

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: “(II Peter 1:19). Peter who walked with Jesus and lived with Jesus and saw him do all his miracles: said that he had a more sure way of believing than all the experiences that he had with Jesus personally. The more sure way of believing that Peter had, and was talking about is fulfilled prophecy. There are over 300 hundred prophecy’s about Jesus in the Old Testament. Here are just a few: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”(Isaiah 7:14). Immanuel means; “God with us”. Jesus was born of a virgin: (Mary).“And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then saidMary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1: 26-35). “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” (Micah 5:2) “NOW when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,” (Matthew 2:1). Daniel Chapter 9 is one of the most important, and amazing prophecy’s proving that Jesus is the Messiah. (see our class on Daniel Chapter 9 ). Isaiah Chapter 53, is all about Jesus. I don’t see how anybody especially a Jewish person can read this chapter and not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, the Messiah! Please read, and memorize this chapter, as it will greatly help you and increase your faith. The Jews took this chapter out of their Bible because it is so obvious that it is about Jesus, however when they found the Dead Sea Scrolls in the year 1947 A.D., written down hundreds of years before Christ, Low and behold the 53rd. Chapter was there with the rest of the Book of Isaiah. For some reason the Jewish people are really hard to wittiness to, and you have to really pray for them, because the devil really fights against their salvation. “And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. ” (II Corinthians 3: 13-15). The Jews are always quoting that verse in Deuteronomy 6:4 where it says; “Hear, Oh Israel : The Lord our God is one Lord.” However in the Hebrew text which this verse was originally written in, the Hebrew word actually used refers to the plural meaning of Lord, which would be actually saying the Lord’s our God are one. Any time you add “im” on a Hebrew word it makes it plural. Elohim means the plural form of the word God. In other words the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, the Trinity are one in Spirit and Unity, and they are also three different persons. A better English translation would have been the Lord’s our God are one. Jesus said, “I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30). Jesus was not saying he was the Father, but that he was one in unity with the Father as well as the Holy Ghost. “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7). Jesus is the Word. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14),You can actually know Jesus and be closer to him then his disciples were, through studying, and faith in his Word and fulfilled prophecy, and though the Holy Spirit. The 12 disciples didn’t even believe on him (except Peter and possibly James & John) until later in his ministry and after his resurrection, but you can get closer to him by increasing your faith by studying God’s Word, especially Bible Prophecy, a more sure way of knowing, as Peter said. Let these sayings sink down into your spiritual ears of your spiritual being. The Bible is like a great jigsaw puzzle. The purpose of this web site is to help you put the pieces together. Please diligently study all these lessons. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15).

PROOF THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD. PART 2

PROPHECY “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;” (Deuteronomy 18:15). FULFILLMENT “Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?”(John 7:40-42). “and he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.” (Acts 3:20-23). “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”(John 3:36). Jesus was both Prophet, High Priest, King Of Kings, and Lord of Lords, The Messiah, and The Only Begotten Son of God.

PROPHECY “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” (Isaiah 53:1-3). FULFILLMENT “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.”(John 1:10-11). “But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: that the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?”(John 12:37-38). “Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.”(Matthew 26:3-4).

PROPHECY “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”(Zechariah 9:9). FULFILLMENT “And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.”(Matthew 21:8-11).”And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;” (Luke 19:35-37).

PROPHECY “And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.”(Zechariah 11:12-13). FULFILLMENT “Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, and said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.”(Matthew 26:14-16).

PROPHECY “He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living:
for the transgression of my people was he stricken.” ( Isaiah 53:8). FULFILLMENT “When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: and when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.” ( Matthew 27:1-2).

PROPHECY “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter ,and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,so he openeth not his mouth.”( Isaiah 53:7). FULFILLMENT “And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee. But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.” ( Mark 15:3-5).


PROPHECY “I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.” ( Isaiah 50:6). FULFILLMENT “Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?” (Matthew 26:67-68).”And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.” (Matthew 27:30).”And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.” (Mark 14:65). “And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.” (Mark 15:19).”Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.” ( John 19:1-3).

SAY THIS PRAYER IF YOU WANT TO BE SAVED

Dear Jesus Christ, Please come into my Heart, I now accept you as my Savior, The only begotten Son of God ,I Believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead, Please forgive me of all my sins and fill me with the Holy Spirit, to give me the power to be a witness and to preach the Gospel in all the world.

ARE YOU A REAL JEW?

“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: but he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” (Romans 2:28-29)

“And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29).

If you believe and receive Jesus Christ into your heart as your Saviour, then you are a completed Jew. Most of the Christian Church World has been deceived into thinking that the Jews have some kind of special place and grace in God’s heart and plan just because they are physical Jews in the flesh, when they really don’t , unless they receive Jesus Christ! All the promises and Blessings are only for those Jews and every other nationality that receives Jesus Christ The Only Begotten Son of God as their Saviour, and Lord, and King.

Jesus said; “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36). This prophesy from Jesus has been fulfilled ever since the Romans destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem and crucified around a million Jews in 70 A.D. Up to modern times, including the soon coming 7 Vials of the Wrath of God. SEE: Our classes on Revelation Chapters 16-19 in www.answesintheword.com.

In fact Jesus told the Jews “Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.” (Matthew 21:42-45)

Jesus also told the Jews; ”Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.” (Matthew 21:31)

So if you want to be a real spiritual Jew and receive all the blessings and promises that the Lord has given in the Bible to his children just simply say this prayer below.

SAY THIS PRAYER IF YOU WANT TO BE SAVED

Dear Jesus Christ, Please come into my Heart, I now accept you as my Savior, The only begotten Son of God ,I Believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead, Please forgive me of all my sins and fill me with the Holy Spirit, to give me the power to be a witness and to preach the Gospel in all the world. AMEN.

NOTHING SHORT OF RIGHT IS RIGHT !

Many Church’s today have moved out of the Arena and into the Grand Stands !

If we as Christians don’t Acts 1:8 we can expect to get Acts 8:1. Go ahead and look it up if you dare.

If they arrested you for being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you?

A leading Baptist Preacher said 3 times recently in his sermon on the radio, “ Jesus can come at any moment. “This is a blatant lie and false doctrine from the devil ! “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians I:8).“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19). “Teaching false doctrine is very, very, serious to the Lord ! “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 worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:2-4). “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:15)

“for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Matthew 24:21). 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. (Matthew 24:29-31)

Jesus is going to appear in the clouds of heaven and rapture all the saved up to the marriage supper of the Lamb immediately After The Great Tribulation which begins when you see the Abomination of Desolation standing in the rebuilt Jewish Temple 3 1/2 years after the covenant is confirmed by the anti- christ. To teach that Jesus Christ could come at any time goes against Scripture and throws all Bible Prophesy off , and will cause THE GREAT CONFUSION among Christians in these End Times when there is no Pre-Tribulation Rapture like most all their preachers have been telling them.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”(2 Timothy 2:17a)

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”(Acts 17:11)

he that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” (Revelation 2:17a)

SAY THIS PRAYER IF YOU WANT TO BE SAVED

Dear Jesus Christ, Please come into my Heart, I now accept you as my Savior, The only begotten Son of God ,I Believe you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead, Please forgive me of all my sins and fill me with the Holy Spirit, to give me the power to be a witness and to preach the Gospel in all the world. AMEN.

THERE IS A FAMINE COMING

“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
and they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.” (Amos 8:11-12)


 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”(John 9:4).

“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”(Isaiah 60:2).

” 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.” (Revelation 12:12).

 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.”

 (Daniel 11:33-35).
“and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”(Daniel 12:7b).


Never in the course of human history and conflict has so much of an opportunity been given to help so many, but so few choose to gain the ability to take on the challenge that has been set before them.

 
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14).

Because few choose to be chosen.
You better hide the Word in your heart while you can by reading, and memorizing God’s Word. The time is coming when they will take it all away, and all you will have is what you memorized and hid in you heart.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

THE JUDGEMENTS OF GOD

“For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.” (1Corinthians 11:31). Read Daniel 9:1-19. This is a scripture we should all listen too. In case you are wondering why these terrible plagues and pestilences are coming upon America and the World. “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” (1 Peter 4:17). America claims to be a Godly Nation, yet America alone is going on 100 million Babies killed ! How can anyone wonder “Why bad things are happening.” Also how can any body claim to be a Christian and believe in abortion? Repent or Perish ! Turn to Jesus Christ and Amend your ways. “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord, are these. For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; if ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:  then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.” ( Jeremiah 7:3-7). “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”. (Psalms 9:17). “But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the Lord.” (Jeremiah 12:17). “but they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.”(2 Chronicles 36:16). This is not a time to be laughing or making fun of what is happening it is a very serious time. I pray that the Lord will have mercy on his children here who are against abortion. Now it seems that there is no end in sight. America’s cup of iniquity is surely getting full if not over flowing unto the point that God’s judgements are at the door. “Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!” (Jeremiah 9:1). We are being plucked up by the roots. “I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.” (Daniel 7:8). “These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;” (Jude 1:12). Bible Prophecy is being fulfilled. “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13). Apparently things were going to good to fit into Bible Prophecy. The sooner it gets worse the sooner it will get better, because Jesus is coming. ARE YOU READY???

Here are some encouraging verses.

Psalm 91

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. Thou 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.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

Hope for Our Future

“And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.” (Revelation 12:5). “Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron;
thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. (Psalms 2:4). Jesus Christ is coming back soon to rule the world with strong control. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. (Isaiah 2:4). “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
and a little child shall lead them.” (Isaiah 11:6). The world will be like the garden of Eden again before Adam and Eve sinned against God. Things will be a lot better and easier then since the Devil is cast into the bottomless pit for a thousand years and the anti-christ and the false prophet are cast into the Lake of Fire. These are promises from the Bible that we can look forward too. So make sure you are on the winning side by asking Jesus Christ to come into your heart, because the Bible says in Revelations 12:12.”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. “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (2Timothy 3:13).So the sooner it gets worse, the sooner it will get better. Comfort one another with these promises from God’s Word.

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 24 Part 2(video & text)

Verse 22) “And except those days should be shortened. there should no flesh be saved: but for the elects sake those days shall be shortened.” The Great Tribulation will begin a time of trouble that the world has never seen, followed by an even worse time of trouble, the seven vials of the wrath of God. The elect are the saved. This time of trouble will be shortened for their sakes to 3 and 1/2 years because they are going to be rescued at the rapture immediately after the 3 and 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation before the seven vials of the wrath of God begins.

Verse 23-28) “Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightnings cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”If anybody told me that Jesus had come back, and was in a secret place in the desert. I would tell them that was not true, because if Jesus had come back I wouldn’t be here. I would be in heaven at the marriage supper of the Lamb in my new body and having a great time at the biggest party and family reunion in history! Jesus warns us again to not be deceived by false prophets and false Christ’s even though the false prophet will do signs and wonders, even pulling fire out of the sky“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” (Revelation 13:13,14). When Jesus appears and takes us to heaven it will be fast like a twinkling of an eye, like the lightnings, like the Eagles (the saved) attacking a carcass,( Jesus). Have you ever seen how fast eagles can swoop down and pick up a rabbit and be gone with it? “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.” (I Corinthians 15:52).

Verse 29,30) “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.” Does it say immediately before the tribulation? NO! IT SAYS IMMEDIATELY AFTER !!! You can’t get any clearer than that! Then why do most churches today teach the dangerous false doctrine of Pre-Tribulation Rapture? The Lord has spent so much time in the Scriptures trying to show us the truth yet people don’t get it because they don’t search the Scriptures for themselves because they say this is what we pay the preacher for, and he doesn’t get it himself, because he is taking the word of someone else that taught him. “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11). Are you more noble? Do you search the Scriptures daily to see if these things are so? So Jesus said; Immediately after the Tribulation, which lasts for 3 and 1/2 years, 42 months, 1,260 days, which begins the day when the abomination of desolation will be placed in the Temple. Then he will appear in the clouds of heaven and resurrect the dead bodies of all the saved and those that are alive at this time, and change our bodies, and take us all to heaven, and all the people still alive on earth will mourn when they see Jesus appear and all the saved people disappear because they missed the rapture, and the wrath of God is coming upon them. The word “then” is another keyword. Immediately after the Tribulation in verse 29 “then” shall appear the sign of the Son of Man (Jesus) coming in the clouds of heaven. So Jesus appears and takes the saved to heaven at this time.

Verse 31“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.” This is talking about the seventh trumpet in Revelation Chapter 10:7, which is the Rapture, which means “The Gathering Together”.

Verse 32) “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh; So likewise ye when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” The fig tree is talking about Israel. Even today the fig tree is the national symbol of Israel. Israel became a nation again for the second time on May 14, 1948. Israel was for the most part a barren desert land, but since Israel became a nation again it has become a very fruitful country in fact it is one of the top exporters of fruit in all the world. “He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud and fill the face of the world with fruit.” (Isaiah 27:6). “The fig tree”, Israel, is definitely being built up and putting forth leaves. So the harvest, or rapture is near. “When the Lord shall build up Zion. (Israel) he shall appear in his glory.” (Psalm 102:16) These are the very words that Jesus spoke in Matthew 24 verse 30, “appear” and “glory.” “I will open rivers in high places and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the Cedar, the shit-tah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: That they may see,and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this,and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. Produce your cause. saith the Lord: bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.” (Isaiah 41:18-22). Another amazing prophecy about Israel being built up as a sign of the soon coming of the Lord is found in (Isaiah 11:11-14).“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time torecover the remnant of his people, which shall beleft, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Path’ -ros, and from Cush, and from E’-Iam, and from Shi’-nar, and from Ha’-math, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcast of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of E’-phra-im shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah. shall be cut off: E’-phra-im shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex E’-phra-im. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Phi-lis’-tines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon E’-dom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.” The second time God brought back the Jews to Israel was in 1948. This is when Israel became a nation again after they were scattered throughout the world, after Rome destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 A. D. Hitler persecuted and killed so many Jews which drove them out of Europe and all over the world to come to Israel. The first time the Jews were scattered by Babylon in 586 B.C. Until Artaxerxes king of Persia gave the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem in 457 B.C. And the Jews came back to rebuild the street and wall of Jerusalem.( see our Daniel 9 Class). Also today there are no more south and north tribes called E’-phra-im and Judah, but Israel is one nation today. In verse 14 it says, “But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Phi-lis’tines toward the west.” This amazing prophecy was fulfilled in 1967 during the 6 day war when the Israeli jets flew over the Gaza Strip ( the Philistines toward the West), and attacked the Egyptian Air Force and destroyed it, and destroyed their tanks and trucks and armies in the Sinai desert as they were on their way to attack Israel. God spoke through Isaiah around 750 BC about jet airplanes! The fig tree, Israel, is definitely being built up. This is an important sign of the end and the coming of Jesus Christ.

Verse 33) “So likewise ye,when you shall see all these things know that it is near even at the doors.” Jesus is coming soon! It is time to get ready. When someone we really like is coming over to visit us we get all excited, and get our house cleaned up to greet them, and then they arrive at our door step and we hurry to open the door and receive them. How much more should we be like this for the Lord? We know he is on his way.

Verse 34) “Verily I say unto you. This generation shall not pass until all these things be fulfilled.” This generation has seen most of these things come to pass, wars, earthquakes, famines, pestilences, the Gospel being preached worldwide, but there is still a lot to go. The next major sign we’re looking for is the confirming of the covenant. Which starts the last seven years, and the Abomination of Desolation being placed in the soon to be rebuilt Jewish Temple at Jerusalem, which starts the last 3 1/2 years or 42 months or 1,260 days. Remember these time periods are based on the Hebrew calendar of twelve 30 day months in a year. So the generation that sees all these events happen will not pass away until Jesus comes back.

Verse 35 and 36) “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” God is going to make a new heaven, and a new earth, and the old heaven and earth will pass away, but Jesus’s Word will never pass away! Only God knew when Jesus was coming back, when Jesus spoke these words to his disciples“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:9-11).

Verse 37-39) “But as the days of No’-e were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that No’-e entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Things got pretty bad in Noah’s day, so bad, that God wanted to destroy men off of the face of the earth, which he did in the flood, but spared Noah and his family to carry on the human race. So Jesus said people would be carrying on just like in the days of Noah and knew not what is getting ready to happen to them.

Verse 40-42) “Then shalt two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill, the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” When the rapture happens all the saved people will instantly disappear and be taken to Heaven. Can you imagine the shock and chaos this will cause? What if the Pilot and Co-pilot were raptured during their flight?

Verse 43-51“But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meet in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And show began to smite his fellow-servants. and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he look if not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Some people who are raptured will be in shame when they see Jesus. Don’t let it happen to you. Would you like to hear the Lord say to you: “Well done thou good and faithful servant” enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” ? Then just be a good and faithful servant until the Lord takes you.“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.” (Daniel 12:2,3) “Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  (Matthew 6:19-21).

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

Matthew Chapter 24 Part 1 (video & text)

Verse 1, 2) And Jesus went out and departed from the Temple: and his disciples came unto him for to show him the buildings of the Temple. And Jesus said unto them. See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you. There shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down.” Jesus had just finished blasting the scribes and Pharisees and Sadducees in Matthew chapter 23, telling them that they were hypocrites and blind guides, and serpents, and vipers. Then he left the Temple and his disciples came to him wanting to show him some beautiful buildings that were built as part of the Temple. Jesus told them that there wouldn’t be one stone of the Temple that would not be thrown down. This prophecy from Jesus was fulfilled in 70 A.D. when Titus the Roman General marched on Jerusalem and destroyed the Temple, and when the Temple burned, the gold in the Temple melted through the cracks of the bricks, and Titus ordered his soldiers to take each stone and scrape the gold off. This fulfilled what Jesus predicted. The earthen retaining wall still remains today. It is called the Wailing Wall were Jews go to pray, but was not part of the Temple itself, but it held up the dirt that the Temple area was built upon.

Verse 3 -5) “And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately. saying tell us. when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming. and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them. Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name. saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many.”Jesus warns us many times not to be deceived. There are so many false religions. And cults, and isms, and false prophets, and false churches, out there trying to deceive people. That is why you really need to know the word so you won’t be carried away by some false doctrine. If they speak not according to this word. it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20b). “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you. let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8).

Verse 6-8) “And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass. but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines. and pestilences, and earthquakes in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” The Bible tells us; “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse. deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13). Things are not going to get better as evolution teaches, but worse and worse as evil men are inventing more and more ways to destroy themselves and the world. Jesus doesn’t want you to be worried as things get worse, because that means the return of Jesus is getting closer and closer. Jesus warned us of all these plagues and pestilences that are coming upon the world seemingly out of nowhere even now, such as HIV, SARS, H1N1, Enterovirus, Ebola, zika virus and many other pestilences which are coming upon the world, which is another sign of the end times, along with all the devastating earth quakes we are having around the world like never before. Many of these plagues and pestilences are said to be created by evil men themselves.

Verse 9-12)“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted. and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my namesake. And then shall many be offended. and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise. and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound. the love of many shall wax cold.” Persecution of believers has been around every since Jesus was upon the earth during his public ministry, but it will be getting worse as the anti-christ and his forces try to destroy God’s people and the truth that they teach. These verses are becoming more and more true and fulfilled as the Time of The End draws closer.

Verse 13“But he that shall endure unto the end the same shall be saved.” Some false doctrine teachers try to use this verse to say you can lose your salvation, if you don’t endure unto the end. The fact is, you have to rightly divide the word of truth. (II Timothy 2:15 ). You can’t just take one or two verses and make a whole doctrine out of it. You have to take the whole Bible and all the Scriptures on a particular subject to understand the full meaning of it. Yes those that endure unto the end will be saved and rescued when the Lord appears and takes us up at the rapture, but so will also those that don’t endure because they were killed, or they backslid, and denied the Lord. There are also other things to be saved from besides Hell, like being saved from being raised to everlasting shame and contempt, because of denying the Lord, or not serving him. Everyone who has been saved will be taken up when the Lord appears.

Verse 14) “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” This sign is certainly being fulfilled now by satellite, T.V., Radio, word-of-mouth, print, and Internet so that the world will have the message and be without excuse, because there are still many who have not heard the Gospel even once. Why should anyone hear the gospel twice when some have never even heard it once?

Verse 15) “When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet. stand in the holy place, ( whoso readeth, let him understand).” The word “when” is a keyword to remember as we go forth into our study of Matthew Chapter 24. Mark Chapter 13, and Luke Chapter 21 are also accounts of this teaching from Jesus. The ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION is more clearly brought out in our teachings on the book of Daniel, and Revelation. Jesus said,”for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.” (Luke 16:15b). So this particular abomination is the worst ever of all abominations and it makes all the other abominations desolate in comparison. Also the anti-Christ and the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION will outlaw and seek to destroy all other religions. It will stand in the Temple. Many believe that the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION may be some type of a computerized robot image of the anti christ that will speak and cause all who do not worship this image to be killed.( Revelations 13:15).

Verse 6-20) “Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the house top not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child. and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your fight be not in the winter. neither on the sabbath day.” The word “then” is another keyword that goes along with ”when” in verse 15. In other words when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing in the Temple, which will probably be a widely publicized event. Then it is time to flee, especially at this time in Jerusalem. The Jews strictly enforce the Old Testament laws of the Sabbath day, and no travel will be allowed. Also it will be hard for those who are pregnant or have babies at this time.

Verse 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.” The word “then” in this verse is another keyword that goes along with “when” in verse 15, and the word “then” in verse 16. In other words when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION standing in the Temple, then it is time to flee, and then the great tribulation begins, the last 3 and 1/2 years or 42 months, or 1,260 days. (Remember the Hebrew calendar has twelve 30 day months).
