"And Jesus answered and said to them, see to it that no one misleads you,...And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a
witness to all nations, and then the end shall come."
Many have given false predictions about the end of the age
and the glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ They all have been wrong in the past. Let me make it crystal clear ! This is not an attempt on my part to predict the day and hour of Jesus' return. But I have studied God's word for years and it has put me on the alert. I wish people would stop fighting about when Jesus will return.
He has not yet as of July 17,2015. Should we not rather focus on telling people we are all sinners in need for Jesus as Lord and Savior so we may be reconnected to God and get into heaven on our last day? Should we not rather be excited to see Jesus our Lord? ARE YOU READY TO MEET THE LORD JESUS? Do you know Jesus as Lord and Savior?
September 11, 2009 I was made aware of Corrie Ten Boom who has warned us about false teachings by pastors who teach there will be no suffering for Christians and an easy bailout to heaven. You may read sister Corrie's views on the link below; http://endtimepilgrim.org/corrie.htm
Marv Rosenthal Dr. George Fredericks made me aware of brother Marv who also have had a change of heart regarding when the Lord Jesus will return for His believers. With brother Marv's permission I have copied in his comment from the Zion's Hope website linked below; "I have particular concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ who believe they will be removed by a pre-tribulation rapture from these events before they commence. I know what they believe and the Scriptures they cite in defense of their position. For twenty-five years I was a major advocate of pre-tribulation rapturism through my writing and preaching. For pretribulation rapturists, I fear the Great Tribulation will be a spiritual Pearl Harbor. Believing they will be exempted from the persecution of Antichrist by rapture, they will be caught off guard and totally unprepared for what is coming on the earth. They will be like a man taking a placebo that does not help, when nearby is medication that can strengthen the immune system to faithfully withstand the attack. The only encouragement for the believer found in the thirteenth chapter of Revelation is that of the time restraint placed upon this demonic trio and the promise of reciprocity against those who harm God?s elect. . .." End of quote. For further study on what brother Marv has to say on the Zion's Hope Ministry website click below; http://www.zionshope.org/index.aspx
The Bible says in John chapter 3 You must be Born Again to enter the kingdom of God!!! What was different in 2010? For us to know the future we may look in the Bible as to what the LORD has done in the past. There are some key prophecies needed to be fulfilled for the end to come. One key prophecy was; "Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? shall a nation be brought forth at once?" Isaiah 66:8a The re-birth of the nation of Israel happened May 14, 1948. Israel marked its 60th anniversary in 2008 and is now a powerful nation in full bloom as the Lord Jesus told us in Matthew 24:32-35 in the Parable of the Fig Tree. DO NOT GO TO WAR AGAINST JERUSALEM "Now this is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth. Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Booths." Zechariah 14:12,16
I do not advice anyone to war against Israel. The above Scripture sounds like someone being hit by atomic or chemical weapons. A study on the six day war in 1967 will show you Israel and the God's chosen people the Jews Clearly had the LORD fight the battle for them. The forces coming against Israel on three fronts greatly out numbered this little frail new nation yet by several miracles performed by God Israel had the victory. http://www.sixdaywar.co.uk/ With the technology today, especially
with the introduction of Windows 95
and Perconal Computers, and computers
now being used in stores and on the internet
for you to make purchases,
there is a possibility this world might come to an end sooner than most people think. All computer technology is in place for the mark of the beast the number 666 to be made available when the anti-Christ rise to power. Check this link to John Mcternan's insights. John blogs daily the world events showing what happens to nations and their leaders who goes against Israel. This is a must reading.

GOD WARNED US EARLY "NOW the LORD said to Abram, 'Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father's house, to the land which I will show you; And I will make you a great nation, Aand I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." Genesis 12:1-3
and me too,
love people of all nations. BUT: The problem today lies in leaders around the world going against the nation of Israel while trying to solve the economic and health disasters in the nations using human efforts while the problem remains their sin.
Recently in July 2015 America allowed
for homosexuals to marry. Though this might
appear as a humane thing to do it actually
violate God's word in the Bible. Please
read Romans chapter 1. This happening might
actually be a sign of end times as the Bible
says it will be like in the days of Noah, Sodom
The solution is found in Christ! Instructions for how to solve the problems are given in the Bible in 2. Chronicles 7:14-15. If people would pray and seek the Lord Jesus and surrender their lives and country to Christ and govern according God's commands the Lord has promised He will heal the land. I support any woman or man of God who governs according to God's Ten Commandments. It' about Faith, Family and Freedom For a Christian perspective world view I recommend you check out David Wheaton's CHRISTIAN WORLD VIEW website and radio programs; http://thechristianworldview.com/tcwblog/
Those with a political agenda who are for abortion, homosexuality, and hindering freedom of speech and religion violate God's word
and lead the nations into grave sin and danger.
I pray for our leaders regardless of who they are. If they appear to rule in sin I pray for God's grace and mercy upon them and the nation they lead into destruction. I pray for their salvation in Christ. After all this sinner has been much forgiven despite living a life as an atheist for 37 years blaspheming God Jesus.
What has politics to do with end time prophecies you might ask? We may learn about the future from reading in the Bible how God has dealt with nations in the past. Nations ruled based on God's statutes and commands will be blessed by the Lord. Look at the nation of Israel. "For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the LORD our God whenever we call on Him? Or what great nation is there that has statutes and judgments as righteous as this whole law (Moses gave the Ten Commandments from God) which I am setting before you today? Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and grandsons. Remember the day you stood before the LORD your God at Horeb, when the LORD said to me(Moses), assemble the people to Me, that I may let them hear My words so they may learn to fear Me all the days they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children." Deuteronomy 4:7-10
Anyone ruling a nation against God's laws will receive God's judgment. "So watch yourself, lest you forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which He made with you, and make for yourselves a graven image in the form of anything against which the LORD your God has commanded you. For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. When you become the father of children and children's children and have remained long in the land, and act corruptly, and make an idol in the form of anything, and do that which is evil in the sight of the LORD your God so as to provoke Him to anger, I call Heaven and earth to witness against you today, that you shall surely perish quickly from the land where you are going over the Jordan to possess it. You shall not live long on it, but shall be utterly destroyed." Deuteronomy 4:23-26 Re-birth of the nation of Israel in 1948 This warning given from God through His prophet Moses applies to the Jews, who were spread to live in many nations before they were given back their land in 1948. But it also applies to all other nations because God used Israel as an example for us to follow. An example of images of any sort today is money, fame and power which people in selfish greed indulge in instead of seeking the God Jesus their Maker. THE END OF THE WORLD It is not a matter of if the world will end rather a question of when it will happen. When you find fault with this study Please e-mail and tell me; Jesus.email@example.com
I am excited the Lord Jesus is coming for His believers. This is a incredible positive event because heaven is the home of the believers in Christ. Without it we would have no hope. Our only hope is in the Lord Jesus! This earth is not our home! God has blessed America for years because this nation was founded on God's word, and have supported the nation of Israel. According to Wikipedia the free encyclopedia The American Jewish population as of February 7, 2009 is roughly 5,167,830 slightly behind Israel's population of Jews roughly 5,567,987. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Jews So it is apparent the connection between the U.S.A and Israel is quite significant. 13 of the Senators in the U.S Senate are Jewish. Politics and God go hand in hand despite any attempt to make the two separate. In the same manners as the sinner is separated from God so is a sinful nation also separated from God. You may read in Genesis chapter six how people and nations refused to repent from their evil sinful ways and therefore faced God's wrath in the flood. God was sorry He made the earth and all in it. Only Noah and his seven family members were found righteous by God. God warned people through Noah His preacher for over 100 years yet they refused to listen. What has this to do with today? You tell me could it be the violence and evil might be worse today than in Noah's days? I was born way after Noah so I do not know exactly how bad the evil was but the Bible says; A CORRUPT EARTH "Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked on the earth and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their ways upon the earth. Then God said to Noah, 'The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold I am about to destroy them with the earth." Genesis 6:11-13 The Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus opened my eyes to the sin in my life in 1993. I used to hang out with people with a sinful lifestyle. I have not been in the party world since the early 90's. It was really bad back then at the biker rallies, rock concerts and in the V.I.P rooms. I don't even want to imagine what it's like now 16 years later. Back in Noah's time they did not kill millions of babies a year through abortion. Daily you may watch or read the bad news about the violence around the world. The violence on T.V, in video games, and in the movie theater has been pushed to new worse limits. I cannot go to the movie theater anymore. Even PG-13 rated movies are full of filth, sex and bad language corrupting and blaspheming God's word and His ways of righteous living. I barely can turn on the tube at home without carefully selecting the programs to watch. Even in prime time the commercials pop up with promotions for evil content. The Holy Spirit in me jumps in pain over the evil displayed right into millions of homes. I only watch the weather forecast on the news. The filth and horrors with killings reported daily has become too much. People, murder is not entertainment! The world is wild and out of control and it is about to get worse than ever before when the lawless one, the anti-Christ will be revealed with great abomination and desolation. The world needs to repent from their sins We need a revival like when Jonah witnessed Christ in Nineveh. LORD HAVE MERCY UPON US A SINFUL WORLD! Revival starts in the heart of the believer Tell the world about the wonderful hope of eternal life that is in you, and Let's pray for people to repent from their sins! God is warning us through the Lord Jesus. Are we listening? The Bible says "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My(Jesus) words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son but the Father alone. For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days they were eating and drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away, so shall the coming of the Son of Man(Jesus) be." Matthew 24:35-39
Though Scripture says we do not know the exact date and hour, Jesus gave us some clues what it will be like at the end. Did we not learn anything from the story of Noah? The world is shook up financially. While in London for CHRISTmas 2008 I heard people constantly talk about the "Credit crunch". Greedy people caused this to happen over several years. The world is departing from God and seeking evil. Watch and pray. " Take care, keep watch with prayer for you are not certain when the time will be." Mark 13:33 (Basic English Version, BEV)
Will the believers be spared from suffering and tribulation? CHRISTIANS WILL BE KILLED! I used to believe in the pre-tribulation Rapture in hope of avoiding suffering and possibly be killed for my faith in the Lord Jesus. I have to admit in my ignorance I did not take time to prayerfully study the matter in more detail. I merely accepted the teachings of the pastors in the churches I was attending. I am presenting a few Scriptures here for you to look at, and give you more than one point of view for you to decide on your own. I am not trying to force anyone to believe anything. You are free to believe whatever you want. I am however concerned if the pre-trib teachings are wrong could the ones mentioned in the scripture below be those angry over having been told they would not suffer persecution and therefore will fall away? "Then they will deliver you(the believers in Christ) to tribulation and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My(Jesus) name. And at that time many will fall away and deliver up one another and hate one another. Matthew 24:9-10 SUN TURNED INTO DARKNESS "The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE(my caps) the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. And it will come about that whoever calls upon the name of the LORD will be delivered." Joel 2:31-32a
In Acts 2:20-21, and Revelation 6:12 you will find the same prophecy. Notice it says BEFORE the day of the LORD! the sun and moon will be messed up. In Matthew 24:27-31 it says immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear, and in verse 31 the elect (the believers in Christ) will be gathered In 2.Thess 1:3-10, it says the suffering will not end until Jesus comes in the air. The seven seals "And I(the apostle John) saw when the Lamb(Lord Jesus) broke one of the seven seals." Revelation 6:1a This Scripture reference is the beginning of the seven seals and the rider on the white horse went out to conquer. I believe this is the Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus in the final harvest of souls. Further on in verse 3-4, in the second seal, a rider on a red horse takes peace from the earth, in verse 5-6 the third seal is broken and a rider on a black horse mess with the food supply on earth. In verse 8 the fourth seal, a rider on an ashen horse kill with sword, famine, pestilence and wild beasts of the earth. In the fifth seal in verse 9-11, after all the above pain and suffering; "And when He(Jesus) broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God. and because of the testimony which they had maintained; and they cried out with a loud voice. saying 'How long, O' Lord, holy and true, wilt Thou refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?' And there was given to each one of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, should be completed also." Revelation 6:9-11 In verse 12 is the above mentioned darkening of the sun mentioned AFTER the killings of the believers in Christ, which we just read was not yet over. So the Rapture cannot yet have taken place at this point giving indication it is happening in the midst of the tribulation and Christians are still around on the earth in the tribulation.
Also according to info released from NASA in 2013 there would be a red moon
on three occasions in 2014 and 2015. This "happens" to take place
all three times on Jewish holidays. We can watch and know!
THE 144,000 JEWISH EVANGELISTS In chapter 7 verses 1-8 you may read about the 144,000 bond-servants pure Jews, from every tribe of the sons of Israel, who will be called to share God's word in the end. "After these things I looked, and behold a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb(King Jesus), clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; and they cry out with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God(Jesus)
who sits on
the throne, and to the Lamb. And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, saying, 'Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever, Amen.' And one of the elders answered, saying to me, 'These who are clothed in the white robes who are they?, and from where have they come?' And I said to him, 'My Lord, you know.' And he said to me, 'These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Revelation 7:9-14 In verses 15-17 you may read how wonderful it will be to serve God Jesus, who will wipe away every tear from the eyes of the believers in heaven. So, did you notice it says the believers come out of the great tribulation. Would that not indicate they had been in the middle of it? How about the verse saying some had been killed, but there still was more to be killed before God Jesus will start His judgment. "And it was given to him(the anti Christ) to make war with the saints and to overcome them (kill them)." Revelation 13:7a I need to ask you to explain to me; if the church of believers allegedly has been taken up in the Rapture by the Lord Jesus in air before the tribulation as those who hold to the pre-trib theory says, who are the believers anti-Christ will overcome? Who are the ones coming out of the tribulation? Who are the ones being killed for the faith in Jesus? With this in mind I am preparing for; Second Half Tribulation Rapture! MUCH prayer and complete relying on the Lord will be needed to endure for believers in the coming REAL sufferings and trial. The Bible says many will walk away from the Lord. Matthew 24:24 says even the saints will be tricked by false prophets. Could it be in reference to teachers preaching a no suffering false gospel? The Apostle Paul warned in 2. Corinthians chapter 11 to watch out for people who preach a different gospel than he did. 1.Timothy 4:1 says people will turn away from their faith and give into teachings of evil spirits. I wonder did they know Jesus as Lord in the first place? Few are willing to talk about this. I am NOT a prophet. I only say; WATCH OUT MAN! Read about the watchman in Ezekiel 33:1-9. It will be a real test of faith in the coming years. I am not setting a date, but will not be surprised if; the Temple will be built in Jerusalem very soon. I am paying attention what will happen around the Jewish holidays: Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, Passover, and all other Jewish Feasts because in the past the LORD has used these Jewish holidays to accomplish most of His work. The technology is in place for the Temple to be built in a few months. Check out this link to a website with more info. Jewishs holidays: http://biblicalholidays.com/tabernacles.htm In the book of Daniel it says a decree will be made to restore Jerusalem. If it was not the temple why would it say plaza and moat? Revelation 13 says 42 months of the anti-Christ rule. Some say it is Jewish months of 30 days maybe? others claim this makes no sense. Why would God say the time of rule of the anti-Christ will be 42 months only to say it will be cut short. "And unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect (the believers) those days shall be cut short." Matthew 24:22 Maybe the 42 month period of the anti-Christ rule will be completed, but before the 42 months are done the believers will be raptured? Regardless of when, we know for sure The Lord Jesus is first coming in the air with His mighty angels in flaming fire with the sound of the trumpet. You may read 1.Thess. 4:13-18 and 2.Thess. 1:7-8 and "For just as the lightning comes from the east, and flashes even to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man(Jesus) be." Matthew 24:27 From reading the above Scriptures I still lean towards; Second half tribulation Rapture. I am not carving this in stone. These speculations are merely my understanding of studying the Scriptures. I am nobody! I leave it to you the reader to decide what you think. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord, and keep on the alert. Hallelujah ! How exciting our awesome , precious, beloved Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST is coming back to take us to heaven! Watch and pray and be on the alert.
Matthew 24:43 The Lord's final harvest of souls Matthew 9:37-38 mention a plentiful harvest with few workers. The Lord's will stage a last harvest of souls using His remnant of sold out believers in Christ. Check Romans 11:5 and Isaiah chapters 1-10. I grew up on a farm. A harvest was quick and hectic. The crop had to get in the barn within a small window of opportunity or the hay would rot on the stacks and potatoes and other things grown would rot in the ground. Likewise in times of trouble people draw near to God, but shortly afterwards they forget about Him. So people need to be reached quickly while their focus is on the LORD. Pentecost means harvest. Could it be we are extremely close to the return of the Lord Jesus? Check out this link on Pentecost; http://biblicalholidays.com/Pentecost/celebrating-pentecost.htm
Jesus said the tribulation will be cut short or no one would survive. Could it be possible Jesus could come either this year of 2015, 2016, 2017, or 2025 which would be 77 years after 1948 and the birth of the nation of Israel, and the prophecy given my Jesus in Matthew 24:32-34 about the fig tree, which is referring to Israel, and not one generation will pass. Current age of men is 77 and women 78 years. So this is something to look into. Again two major events in need to take place is the building of the Temple and the two witnesses mentionen in Zechariah chapter 4 and Revelation chapter 11 The Bible says we are to be on the alert.
Are you ready to meet your Savior?
Do you know JESUS as LORD and Savior?
If not, I urge you again to ask Him forgiveness for your sins
ask JESUS to come into your heart
as Lord, Savior and Master of your life.
When you do, you will know because you will want to
live for Jesus and not for the world.
WHEN the anti-Christ stands in the temple and proclaim to be god! Revelation 13 says he will reign for 42 months. which is 3 1/2 years. The European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) Back in 2009 I wrote about this document.
Four years later April 20, 2013 I watched the events not
unfolding as some said they would. We can hold it up against
Scripture and see if the theory was true. Time is
running out for this theory to be true. The ENP document was
signed first by Israel and then 16 other nations
in the week of October 17-24, 2006 . July 1, 2010 was the 3 1/2 years point since the ENP was put into effect on January 1, 2007. IF this was the covenant written in Daniel 9:24-27, we would have had to have been in the first half of the Tribulation
and things would have to go downhill really fast very soon in the entire world.
But the timeline appear to not match.
There are a two key events which has not yet taken place.
The blood moon and the sun going dark
and the rise of the Anti - Christ standing in the new Temple
yet to be built in Jerusalem in midst of distress and he will
proclaim to be god! ( small "g", because he is NOT God!!) The NWO ( New World Order )
will be part of the end times rule of the Anti Christ (A.C) Let it be known the numbers for the article for the funding and the recommendation to put the ENP into law January 1, 2007 was both; 666 "AND he stood on the seashore, And I saw a beast coming out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads." In Revelation 13:1a 10 horns + 7 heads = 17. The ENP was signed in Barcelona on the seashore of the Mediterranean Sea. This policy is a significant agreement and was funded with 11 Billion Euro dollars by the European Union.
This could still have significance. It could be
part of the forerunner for the false peace treaty. Yom Kippur Yom Kippur is the Jewish holiday
when the Jewish people atone for their sins.
Ironicly this is an insult to the only one who can
forgive sins and His name is
No "dirty" human can wash themselves clean.
ONLY the blood of JESUS could do that!
It would not be surprising to me if Jesus
choose Yom Kippur as His day of return.
The opportunity for the anti-Christ to stage his time of ruling involves money and the human number 666 in Revelation 13:16-18. It might be a financial melt down all over the world which will open up for the new world order of the anti-Christ. I warn you! Do not take the number
of the beast. "And another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, 'If anyone worships the beast(Anti-Christ) and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or upon his hand, he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger, and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." Revelation 14:9-11 A FAR BETTER ALTERNATIVE "Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God, and the faith in Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, 'Write, blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!' 'Yes, says the Spirit, 'that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them." Revelation 14:12-13 The Lord Jesus may come any moment AFTER the anti-Christ starts to rule the world! Could it be in just a few years? The one who lives will see. Now you know the signs to look for.
In the Bible
only and no other place do you find the truth
as God's prophets warned us about these days. I repeat once more I do not set a date, nor time. The word of God says to discern.
The world today April 20, 2013 is a lot like in the days of Noah.
God's prophecies are being fulfilled. In Daniel 9:25 it says; "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress."
It is times of distress now,.. yet that will not hinder the Jews from building the temple.
AMAZING BIBLE Below is a link to an incredible Bible site with
over 6000 pages of info. I disagree with their view of pre-tribulation rapture of the born again believers in Christ but you may check the list of prophecies already fulfilled and what remains to take place before the Lord Jesus is coming back. www.amazingbible.org
I from reading God's word agree with the pre wrath part and their points against pre-trib. However I have suggested a different name on a sobering event including suffering of the saints. I question their argument of ONE coming of the Lord Jesus. I believe based on 1.Thess. 4:13-18 and 2.Thess. 1:7-8 it speaks of the rapture of the sold out believers in Christ who have surrendered their lives to Jesus. The followers of Christ knows His voice and Christ knows who belong to Him. Does Jesus know you? You may read this in John chapter 10. The Lord Jesus physically will be coming back to the earth. I believe the Lord Jesus will first be coming in the air with His angels. That is not the second coming. The second coming will be the Lord Jesus physically to this earth with His saints the believers. God Jesus first coming was when He walked on this this earth. He was crucified, and His shed blood paid for our sins. Check Hebrews 9:14,28 What is so different about Jesus? Jesus was buried and resurrected after three days. The Lord Jesus is alive ! He ascended into heaven where He is now seated at the right hand of God! Check Colossians 3:1 And the Lord Jesus will judge the entire world from His throne in heaven. Psalm 11:4, Acts 7;49, Isaiah 66:1, Revelation 20:11 In 2. Thess. 1:7-8 angels are mentioned and in verse 9-10 the saints (the believers ) are mentioned. In addition there is a reference in 2.Thess. 2:8 and in Revelation 19:8 where it says the saints are clothed in clean linen. in verse 6 says it is a great army, in verse 14 an army in heaven, which indicate the saints have been raptured up in heaven. In verse 17 it refers to an angel but no indication of an army of angels. As to believers and suffering I have covered that on this website. Just click the picture at the bottom of this page and wolla! you get to suffering. Those holding to a pre-triubaltion rapture theory claim the saints (the believers) will be saved from God's wrath. I suggest you read Romans chapter 5 where it says we are saved from God's wrath through Salvation by faith in Christ and our souls are saved from God's wrath through our salvation. I do not believe Christians are exempt from suffering. http://www.street-ministry.org/endtimeprophecies/sufferingandpersecution.html
Likewise it was our souls God Jesus was pierced for not to heal every body while on earth. Ultimate healing will take place in heaven when we get new bodies. Praise the Lord Jesus! You will find that in 1. Corinthians chapter 15. Revelation 14:9-11 says God's wrath will be poured out on those who worship the devil through the anti-Christ. God does not tempt anyone. Nor does He send anyone to hell. The LORD has no pleasure in anyone who dies, but urge people to repent and live as written in Ezekiel 18:32. Below is a link to someone who appears to have the same questions I have regarding the strange teaching of those who claim there only will be one appearance of Jesus. I disagree with those who believe the Rapture and Jesus Second Coming is one event. I believe it is two events as explained above. This website I agree with more. But why don't you pray and open the Bible and let the Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus help you? http://www.apostolic.net/biblicalstudies/post/prewrath.htm I suggest we stop fighting about WHEN the Lord Jesus is coming back. My focus and energy from this day on will be spent on telling people the Messiah God Jesus is coming soon. All people need to know Jesus personally as Lord, Savior and Master. This is a matter of life and death! Jesus is the only God and in charge of everything. The Lord Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our faith. You'll find that in Hebrews 12:2 Our God Jesus is still in full control.
Soon we will all see the King Jesus in the air. Lord Jesus please come quickly!
