Israel becomes a nation in 1948- she is 66 years old
The nuclear bomb was developed,as were many others weapons of mass destruction. ( Chemical,biological,super viruses.)
Weather patterns,super storms and signs in the heavens have increased.
Persecution of the Jews and Christians are at an all time high.
The Bible gives us many clues about what the End Time Church will look like,but first we must entertain the idea that we are THE generation. “Verily I say unto you,This generation shall not pass,until all these things be fulfilled” Matthew 24:35
2 Thessalonians Chapter 2 states that we will be under a “strong delusion“
Delusion- mental straying; error,wrong opinion relative to morals or religion; error which shows itself in action,a wrong mode of acting; Error, that leads to deceit or fraud.
It also states we will ‘Believe a lie’ instead of the truth, and will have “pleasure in unrighteousness”. (Forsaking that which is right,hereby choosing damnation)
Who then shall be saved?
1. Those who are chosen to salvation through ‘sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth’
(2 Thessalonians 2:13) Sanctification- to be consecrated and purified.
The prophet Daniel gives us much information and clues as well ;
2. “And some of them of understanding shall fall , to try them,and to purge them,and to make them white“ Daniel 11:35
3.”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“(Exploits- a bold or daring feat.)
4.” Thou hast a few names (even in Sardis) which have not defiled their garments ; they shall walk with me in white : For they are worthy. Revelation 3:4
5. ” I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried by fire, that thou may be rich: and white raiment,that thou mayest be clothed,and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear” Revelation 3:18
6. ” And he said unto me,these are they which came out of great tribulation,and have washed their robes,and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” Revelation 7:14
I could go on and on with scripture showing us that the elect peoples of God, in the last days are required to get deliverance. Fire is symbolic for the purification of the saints. Fire burns,it hurts, and many people can not take the purging of impurities because they are unwilling to suffer in the flesh.The delusion is so thick that it takes great effort,humility and repentance. It is hard work.
The spirit realm is more active than I have ever seen before. The heavens are full of activity and what takes place in the spirit manifests in the natural.In other words you can take a look at the natural systems ,such as politics, behaviors and modalities,and get a good understanding of what is happening spiritually.We also know to watch Israel. God has always used them as a natural compass to show us the spirit realm.We are told scripturally that He shows himself as God and makes himself known through them.
When The Spirit of God moves, no man can stop it,but man can reject it,and even fight against it. Our weapons won’t save us, our science,our knowledge and all of our safe guards will do no good. Only that white garment spoken of by the prophets and Jesus himself will save you from the wrath that is to come.
Deliverance of the Saints from Babylon (the false kingdom) is a gift from our Lord. Through His blood and His great sacrifice,we can penetrate the vexation and delusion.We can see through it.
Lastly, we can study the parables of Jesus. In Matthew 25 he gives us clues “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins ; which took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And 5 of them were wise and 5 of them were foolish…But the wise took the oil in their vessels with their lamps… And at midnight there was a cry made,BEHOLD,the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then the (wise) virgins arose,and trimmed (prepared,put in order,made ready) their lamps. Verses1-13
Study this carefully,because it is a very important warning,The virgins who did not prepare were told by Jesus “Verily I say unto you,I know you not“
CONCLUSION- the End time Church will be burdened with the responsibility to allow the Lord to try us,to cleanse us and to deliver us from evil. When the Israelites were called out of Egypt,they endured hardship,long journeys and discomfort. They also enjoyed the physical presence and power of God. Unfortunately many fell because of their jealousy,their complaining and their desire to stay in bondage.Those that fought against God never saw the promised land, in fact God thinned them out through disease and famine until they had all died out.Because they refused His deliverance,they suffered greatly.Out of the hundreds of thousands of chosen people ,only two found favor ( Numbers 14)
My studies and experiences have lead me to believe that the End Time Church will be persecuted (Matthew 24:9) ,they will be smitten and humbled.They will be betrayed by the brethren.( Matthew 24:10) They will be militant with their spiritual weapons (2 Corinthians 10:4). They will be willing to go through the fire and the wilderness (Matthew 3:12, Mark 9:49). They will be instructors of many (Daniel 11:33). They will ,by way of commandment, come out of Babylon (The false system,kingdom).( Revelation 18:4-5)
If you are sitting in a church where there is no power,nor deliverance, I urge you to move away from it.Scripture tells us that the End time Church has “many” False prophets. Beware of them beloveds, and find the living God,seek his delivering power and refute the enemy. We may not have ages left.- ANGIE
