Surveys show that "fear" has been increasing in the world since the 1980s. Many people sense that things are not quite right and they are anxious about their future.
Most Christians, however, know the signs of the times and understand that the world around them is beginning to resemble the "days of Noah."
God, in His mercy, not wanting us to be confused or anxious has given us a clear picture from scripture that in the last days, wickedness will increase.
As Christians, we can be confident that God is not only in control, but that He is faithful and His word is true.
History is unfolding just like
God said it would in His word.
This gives us great comfort.
This is also confirmation that the Lord will also rescue His children from the wrath to come as the Bible says.
Some believe the wrath of God will last 7 years.
I think it is more likely not to begin until the end of the 6th year and like in the days of Noah, last 1 year and 10 days. We know that the flood began on the "17th day of the second month" and ended on the "27th day of the second month" This is one year and 10 days. It is significant that God tells us this information in the Bible. In the Bible, all information is perfectly fitted together and has purpose.
Many believe the rapture will begin on the feast of trumpets (which is sighted by 2 witness and no one every knows the day or the hour).
The Bible does not say that we cannot know the month and year. I think we do know the month and when the anti-christ comes at the mid-point, we will know the year.
The wrath of God will be poured out immediately after the rapture on the Feasts of Trumpets and will last one year and ten days, ending on Day of Atonement when Jesus returns with the saints and thus fullfilling two of the Fall Feasts.
Passover: Jesus crucified
Feast of unleavened bread: Jesus buried
Feast of first fruits: Jesus resurected
Feast of pentecost: Holy Spirit came
FALL FEASTS: (not fullfilled)
Feast of Trumpets: Rapture
Day of Atonement: 2nd Coming
Feast of Tabernacles: Millennial Kingdom
Whenever the rapture does occur, we need to prepare our hearts and minds for whatever level of tribulation lies ahead for us.
And whatever your rapture theory, we all eagerly await our blessed hope, the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is important to understand that the world is not looking for the return of Jesus. The world is looking for a "man" savior to stop terrorism, armed conflicts, pandemics, computer hacking, injustice, greed, and society breakdown caused by Mystery, Babylon The Great.
The world is looking for someone
to bring peace and security.
They will get their "man" and
he will be the antichrist.
From scripture, we know that the antichrist will LOOK LIKE A SAVIOR. We need to be on guard.
The deception will be great
and most will be deceived
by the antichrist.
Only those with the
Holy Spirt will not be
deceived by the anti-christ.
Make sure you have saving faith
and are born again.
"Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!" -- 2 Corinthians 13:5
Make sure you are born again and are heaven bound:
Jesus said, in John 3:3, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."
