A Message To Those Who Are Left Behind After The Rapture












.










Greetings in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ!

For a future not so distant day...

This brief letter is written to those of you who have been left behind. May I calm your great anxiety and fears with this great message of hope! God loves you and cares greatly for you. He has a great plan, purpose and future for you and your life. He wants only and always the highest and best things for you. So please give your ear and full attention to the words that follow. The days ahead will be days that will not be easy - in fact they will be quite horrendous. But be of good cheer and of good courage. Have Faith in Almighty God and His Word. - Link to Bible Study on the Rapture.

Jesus said, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but hath everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved (John 3:16-17).

God so loved us that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for your sins and mine! God has thus provided a way to restore fellowship with sinners (all humans), and to remove His righteous wrath that was upon us because of our sins and trespasses. Everyone that puts their trust in Jesus Christ will thus find God's pardon for sin and restored fellowship with Him (1 John 1:1-3). The proof that God will do what He says is shown in what has just transpired, i.e., “The Rapture,” which is (or was) the abrupt removal of Believers (Christians) from the earth. God foretold in His Word that He would do it and He did! Almighty God never lies and never changes (see Numbers 23:19, 1 Samuel 15:29, Hebrews 6:18, 13:8). Almighty God and His Word can therefore be fully trusted! All that put their trust in Almighty God and His Word can be confident that God will do what He says (2 Timothy 1:12).

Basic Facts About Salvation Found in Jesus Christ

All that put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation (the Saved) thus find God's pardon for sin and have Eternal Life. All those who reject God’s saving grace (the Unsaved or Lost) will only receive God’s judgment and wrath (John 3:18).

The Saved will enter Christ’s Glorious Kingdom, which He will establish at the conclusion of this terrible time of Great World Tribulation, i.e., upon Christ's Second Coming to earth (Matthew 25:33-40). Facing God’s judgment, the Lost are removed from the earth prior to the beginning of Christ’s 1000-year (Millennial) Kingdom reign (Matthew 24:36-51, 25:41-46).

Another wonderful truth regarding those that are Saved is the deliverance from the power of wrath, darkness, and death (see 1 Thess. 1:10, Col. 1:13, Heb. 2:14-15). The Lost will have to experience the “Second Death,” which is eternal separation from God in Hell (the Lake of Fire) forever (Rev. 20:11-15). There is a Biblical saying that goes, “Born once, die twice. Born twice, die once.”

Humble yourselves before Almighty God. Listen to His Word! Have faith to believe Him, and all will be well. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!!

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? (1John 5:4-5).

The Rapture of the Church and Tribulation Period
.
As earlier stated, the major event that has just taken place (i.e., the Great Disappearance) is called "The Rapture of the Church." This is the event spoken of in the Holy Scriptures when Christ receives unto Himself all True Believers on earth who are saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ. He has come to meet them in the clouds to be united – Head and Body, Bride and Bridegroom - FOREVER more.

As the Bible states: And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3).

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 4:15-17).

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).

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he [Christ] shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is
(1 John 3:2).

This period following the Rapture of the Church that you presently are in is called, "The Time of Jacob's Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7), “The Time of Great Tribulation” (Matthew 24, Mark 13), and “The Time of Indignation and Wrath (Isaiah 34:2; Revelation 6:16-17) desolations, false hopes, false promises and great deception such as the world has never seen (see Revelation chapters 6-19). The ONLY HOPE you have during this time of great global turmoil is to trust in The Lord Jesus Christ and His Word with all your heart, soul and mind. God has made provision for your total salvation in His wonderful person. Put your trust in Him!

A Brief Overview of Current Events

1. The first event that will take place after the Rapture is the treaty signed between Israel and their enemies. A Man from Europe will greatly strengthen this treaty and make it work. Don’t be deceived! His one goal is to destroy Israel. Don’t believe this man, his teachings and political motivations. He is Satan's Anti-Christ. From the signing of this treaty to the Second Coming of Christ is exactly 7 Years (1 “week” of years or 2520 days; see Daniel 9:26-27).

2. The Gospel message will be preached from Israel by God's Two Jewish Witnesses (Rev 11:3-14) and 144,000 Jewish missionaries (Rev. 7:4-8,14:1-5). Listen to them!!! They bring the TRUE Gospel message. They are God's messengers to the whole earth. Hear them! The man from Europe (aka Anti-Christ) will seek to destroy them and their Gospel message of Jesus Messiah.

3. Beware of the great deception at hand as Jesus spoke of in (Matthew 24:4 and Revelation 12:9). The fearful and unbelieving inhabitants of the earth will be very susceptible to this demonic deception because of the many-faceted catastrophes, conditions and circumstances of this dreadful time. Stay focused and have faith in God and His Word alone (Proverbs 3:5-7)!

4. Love and honor the people of Israel (Genesis 12:2-3). They are God's people and this time period involves them coming back to God as a nation. Love God's chosen people, the Jews (Isaiah 41:8-11). The Anti-Christ and the World system will persecute them with all their hatred and power (Revelation 12, 17:12-14). Line up with God and not with this Wicked World (1 John 2:15-17).

5. Study God's simple plan of salvation, the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), and hide it in your heart as the Bible teaches, for these are the Words of Life (2 Timothy 2:15; Psalm 119:11). Share it with anyone who will hear you (Colossians 4:5-6; 1 Peter 3:15). Be faithful, knowing they may kill the body but not the soul (Matthew 10:28-39). Your soul and spirit are possessed by Almighty God as you possess Him. If your life is taken, God will raise you up at the end of this seven-year tribulation period (Rev. 14:13; 20:4-6). Don’t be afraid; God is still in control, and He is working all things together for good (Rom. 8:28). Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou will be saved! (Acts 16:31)

6. If you survive and make it this far (Rev. 6-9) by all means, DO NOT receive the Mark of the Beast! (Rev.13:18, 14:9-11) If you know Christ as Your Savior, you are safely His and the Holy Spirit will make it clear not to take it. If you know not yet Christ, then do not let yourself be deceived. The mark might bring temporary relief but doom for ETERNITY! Trust in Christ as your Savior! Do not be swayed by the lies of the enemy! Don’t take the mark of the beast for any reason.

7. Again, place your trust in Almighty God and His Word alone! God is always right in what He says and does, and He is merciful and faithful in all His ways (Psalm 103:17-18; 1 Corinthians 10:13). This ought to bring great comfort and encouragement to your hearts. No matter what happens, remember that you belong to the Most High God and are eternally safe! (John 10:28)

The Kingdom Of Heaven is At Hand! Believe on the Lord Jesus and thou shall be saved! (Acts 16:31)
.
It is our desire that this brief letter may bring hope and insight about the Major Event that has just transpired. There are many links on this site that will direct you to the Holy Scripture truths about salvation and the current events at hand. Pray for God to give you wisdom and understanding in these days ahead.For indeed you will need it! God speed!

The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!!

IF, if a treaty is signed, within 7 years will be the second coming? Can you explain this in a little simpler terms for me.

What a great post by the way. Really enjoyed it.

Thanks,

G,
Thanks for your feed back and question.
The Rapture no one knows when it will take place. God has not told us the time but He did say that it would take place (Revelation 3:3). He wants us to be ready always but as the day draws near we will be able to see clearly in light of God's Word His soon coming. But soon after the Rapture from the time of the Treaty that will be signed in Dan 9:27 to Christ return to earth will be one Week or 7 years. A week in the Hebrew is a period of seven years/ a day a year. This is well known by Jewish and Gentile scholars.
In Revelation 11: 2, Revelation12:4-6 and in is tells in specific the number of days and months. 1260 and 42 months.

The middle (mist) of the Treaty, The Anti- Christ will break the treaty and set himself up as Almighty God! This the Bible is more then clear about. (Daniel 9:27, Daniel 12:11,12, Matthew 24:15, Mark 13:14, 2 Thess 2:3-12, Revelation 12:7-12) (Three and a half years) the treaty will be broken. That leaves only three and a half years left. Since the day will be quite horrific and unbelief ramped The Day will come as a Thief in the night ( 2 Peter 3:10,1 Thes.5:2-4 ) to the godless rejecters and unbelievers (2 Thes 2:9-12). God makes it clear as a bell to all. All that is needed is to have Faith, believe and grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. Hebrews 11:6 states, But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

A lot there. I encourage you to look up the verses and see for your self what God's word clearly states. Any more questions please feel free to contact the Ignorant Fishermen.

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

My friend, thanks for your reply.
The table is absolutely set and the next event to transpire will be the Rapture of the Body of Christ, The Church.
I totally believe that the Anti Christ is alive now and Christ will soon call all us who know Him. I'm not setting any dates but we will not know who he is. He will be revealed after we are gone (2 Thes. 2:2-8).

We have written several pieces on the Anti Christ and also his many outworking during this 7 year tribulation time.

Place “Anti Christ” into our Ignorant Fishermen Google search engine that is on our Blog home page located on the right hand side and all the info you will need will be there for you. If you have any further questions please feel free to email us. Sorry for the late reply. I just noticed you comment!

God bless you my friend!

How will the Holy Spirit witness to those who cling to Christt during the Tribulation not to take the mark of the Beast. Isn't the very absence of the Holy Spirit (and the Church) during this time the very thing that allows the Antichrist free reign?

Also, do you mean to imply that everyone who survives the Tribulation will be saved? If so, then who are the heathen who will be given to Christ as an inheritance, to rule over with a rod of iron and dsah to pieces? I know people like Hylton Sutton teach that the Antichrist's riegn will not be worldwide and that many people will enter the Millenial Reign in a not-born-again condition.

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

Thanks for your question!

First of all my friend, The Holy Spirit will remove the restraint (the Church) (2 Thess. 2:7, 8) and let man go full guns to outwork his wickedness i.e., the Age of Lawlessness. But He will still minister to the world as He always has but not in the indwelling ministry He had with the church. Right after the rapture of the church the Holy Spirit will begin to work with the 2 Witnesses of Rev. 11 and God’s 144,000 Jewish believers of Jesus of Rev 7 and 14. God will use the two witnesses, 144,000 Jewish men and the remnant of Israel to reach the world to preach the Gospel message. Angels also will proclaim repent and God Himself will use supernatural signs and wonders during this 7 year tribulation.

In that day (The last 3 ½ years) my friend it will be clear cut. Choose Anti- Christ or Christ. God is always faithful and people will have to make a clear cut choice. Multitudes during this time receive Christ and get saved! Amen! (Matt 13, Matt 25:31-46 and Rev. 7:14)

Not all that survive the Tribulation are saved. At the end when Christ returns he will separate the goats from the sheep, the tares from the wheat, the good vessels from the bad (Daniel 12:10-13, Matt 13, 25:31-46)

Multitudes of “heathen or Gentiles will believe the gospel message from the preaching of God’s Jewish missionaries!! (Rev 7:14, Zech 14)

Christ will dash in pieces only those who go against Him at the end at Armageddon (Rev 19:11-21) The Satanic godless nations of the world.

Also the Anti Christ will rule the world for 31/2 years. Read Revelation 13 the word “All” appears many times.

That position that you stated is wrong. No unsaved shall enter the Kingdom reign of Christ (Matt 13). The Kingdom age begins with only those save survivors of the tribulation. Those that dwell there also will be The slain believers of this tribulation time period (Rev 20:4-6), The resurrection old testament saints (Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, John the Baptist etc.. and the glorified body of Christ – the Church will also be there and rule with Christ for a thousand years.

Our Position is dispensational, pre trib. It is the only way to make any sense of what Almighty God’s Word teaches.

Here are some links that might help you. Also we have a lot of post on the I F Blog that may help you. May you Pray for Almighty God’s direction. He will love to lead you into all the truth!

Please feel free to ask all the questions you like. May god bless you as you seek His Word!

The Kingdom of heaven is at hand!

The anti christ will be revealed after the rapture. But is it possible some of us could certainly "suspect" one of being the anti christ BEFORE the rapture?

Anonymous said...

There will be (unfortunately) NO dispensation for Christians in the difficult years ahead any more than there was for Christ. Jesus said to Pilate "Don't you think with a word legions of my followers (angels) would rush to my defense [to spare me this death]? "The Son of Man must suffer and die on the cross" and likewise Jesus tells us that we must also "pick up our cross and follow me" even unto death. Pope John Paul II clearly stated in his last years that we are and will be expected to suffer for our faith in these years even unto death and there will be NO dismissal from that fact righteous or evil alike. "The Church" Jesus founded is still a pilgrim church and is still refreashed by the suffering and blood of the martyrs 2,000 later. It is true that the war is won but the battle is still joined as it will be for about 1,000 more years until the second coming. Darbyism is false teaching and false Christian theology spawned in the belly of hell, do not believe it and do not be deceived by it either. We are to pray and even suffer for the sinner as Jesus did in his time on earth and as His followers must do likewise. These days are the days of the Chastisement as spoken of in Amos and NOT the time of the Final Battle w the Devil nor "The Beast" of Revelation. This time coming is as revealed by Mary at Fatima, Portugal some 100 years ago and many times since. They will be much more akin to the time of Sodom and Gomorrah as will be their completion. These are the days of great suffering leading up to a time of a worldwide cleansing of the wicked as well as some of the good (who will be counted among the martyrs). I'd suggest to my Protestant friends that they not expect a rescue mission and to get on your knees and pray like your life and soul depends upon it (because it does). As John Paul II said a year or two before his passing "If I told you that over a period of a few minutes 3/4 of the world's population will be consumed, would you repent?", well would you? Don't look for a trumpet blast in the sky but rather be about His work right up to the last minute. "Happy are those found doing my work upon my return" and try to keep a stiff upper lip while they cut off our heads. Wish I could be more assuring but that's the plain and unvarnished truth. YIKES!

The Ignorant Fishermen said...

Yes, I believe we can all speculate. That’s what’s kind of fun today because everything is happening so fast globally and what took 100 years now takes about a year. We are at the vortex of the cyclone as it were.

But in all honesty we can not know as (2 Thess. 2:1-4) states. It isn’t for us to know. It is concealed until that time as verse 3 states. But as we do not know the Date or hour of the Rapture so will it be with the revealing of the anti Christ. He will rise to power faster then Obama has charmed the secular leftist world (Rev 13:1 – rises up out of the sea of humanity- emphasizing speed). Some crucial events will transpire and the global social tectonic plates will shift and Satan will have his man and exalt him immediately to the place of power. I truly believe he is alive and well even know on planet earth as it were on the on deck circle to step to the stage. He doesn’t even know he is the one until after the rapture. We as America I truly believe will be absorbed into a European community and after the rapture we will become even more of a baser nation.

Let’s do all we can to redeem the time and to share the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Our current president is certainly an anti-Christ which he showed clearly when he had the IHS (In His Service) icon covered w black cloth at Notre Dame college when he spoke there shortly after his inauguration. The clear message here is "NOT in His Service". He might also be "The Leopard" of Daniel being two-colored and multi-faced to those wishing to be deceived. Both Indonesia and Hawaii are both 'sea-lands' both of which he came from. He has a cleaver and persuasive tongue like the lion (to those who like to hear it). His feet are like those of a bear, both clumsy and brutish but might also portend to mean a communist (the bear) as well. It's interesting that the current Russian president (Medvedev) also means "bear". Maybe the bammer works for him? He sure ain't working for the American people, no doubt there! The day after his election the Illinois State lotto had "666" for the pick-3 and "9999" (judgment) for the pick-4. I know everyone out there knows what 666 stands for, no clarification needed. (I didn't believe this until I looked it up myself, sure enough) YIKES!!!

That is just an ignorant response. You are using the Illinois state lotto as a reference? That is laughable. There is a difference between biblical truth and silly coincidence.

Doug said...

Please dont be deceived by the 19th century error of a "rapture".
We Christians will be here on earth when the antichrist appears and some will be blessed with the privilege of testifying for the Lord (Mark 13:11).

The apostle Paul tells us in
II Thessalonians 2:2,3 that the "son of perdition" (antichrist) appears before the return of the Lord.

Also,consider these verses in Ezekiel chapter 13:

Ezekiel 13:17 "Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy People, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them,"

Ezekiel 13:18 "And say, 'Thus saith the Lord God; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of My People, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?"

Ezekiel 13:19 "And will ye pollute Me among My People for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive the should not live, by your lying to My People that hear your lies?"

Ezekiel 13:20 "Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; 'Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly."

These are not my words, but is the word of God...

In Christ Jesus, Doug

Yes, Doug, you are correct. The Bible clearly teaches that we will be here for that great tribulation if we have not yet died. 2 Thess 2 clearly states it in the most simple terms...2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Daniel 7-12, Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, Revelation 20...I won't post all of the scriptures here, but let you read for yourself. In those scriptures Yeshua Himself says, "when you see the abomination of desolation" not "when the people who are left behind see the abomination of desolation", indicating that He is warning us what to look for as signs preceding His return. He also says, 29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Immediately after...then...)
And, in Revelation 20, speaking of the time right before the 1000 year reign of Yeshua with His saints, it speaks of the first death and the second death...the first death is when ALL of the saints are raised with Him and reign with Him for 1000 years...the second death refers to the dead NOT in Yeshua being raised for judgement: 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
The teaching of a "secret snatching away" was never something that the apostles nor Yeshua ever taught. That theory requires that Yeshua returns two more times...you can look at the transliteration of the original scriptures by going to halleluyahscriptures.com So many things have been translated incorrectly, and so many people are being led astray by this false teaching that came about by Darby, who was clearly interpreting scripture incorrectly...and, as I said, this was never a teaching before the time of Darby...you can do the research for yourself...we need to start preparing for what is to come, and gear up so we will be able to stand in that day. This is why Yeshua warned us.
If you look at the recent history of things, already everything that has needed to happen has happened in order to usher in the "great tribulation period", with the exception of Israel being surrounded and the antichrist standing in the temple calling himself God. Egypt, Libya, and Sudan have been subdued not that long ago...also, I would advise you to look into Javier Solana...love in Yeshua the Messiah...

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS FOR THE JEWS, AS PROCLAIMED BY JOHN THE BAPTIST AND JESUS CHRIST. IT WAS AT HAND BUT WHEN THE LEADERSHIP OF ISRAEL REJECTED THEIR KING WHEN THEY STONED STEPHEN(WHO SAW THE LORD JESUS CHRIST READY TO COME DOWN TO BE THEIR KING)THE KINGDOM WAS SET ASIDE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE CHURCH, NOT REVEALED TO THE OT PROPHETS, WAS REVEALED THROUGH PAUL AND SO GENTILES CAN BE PART OF GOD'S COMMONWEALTH BY BELIEVING THE GOSPEL IN 1 COR 15:1-4. THAT IS NOT THE GOSPEL TO THE JEWS, THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM GOSPEL AND NOT THE GOSPEL OF GRACE FOR US TODAY. SO PROCLAIMING THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND IS NOT TRUE, IT IS SET ASIDE FOR THE MOMENT UNTIL THE KING COMES IN THE MILLENIUM. OURS IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD WHICH IS NOT FOOD OR DRINK. JUST A REMINDER FOR YOU TO RIGHTLY DIVIDE THE WORD OF TRUTH SO THAT YOU WILL BENEFIT FROM THE BIBLE.

[TIFB: Saw this item on the net!]

Evangelicals Use Occult Deception !

Heard of the coming blood moons? Is the pretrib rapture symbolized by anything in the heavens?
Hal Lindsey, influenced by occult astrology, asserts on p. 124 in "The Late Great Planet Earth" that the famous Sphinx in Egypt has the head of a "woman" - even though encyclopedias say it's the head of a "man"! Hal's plagiarism on that page of a 19th century British theologian is his acceptance of the occult Virgo-to-Leo theory - a "Christian" zodiac arbitrarily starting with Virgo (Virgin Mary) and ending with Leo (Christ returning as "Lion," Rev. 5:5).
Those who swallow this guesswork often see Ursa Minor (part of Cancer which precedes Leo) as a heavenly "symbol" of a pretrib rapture!
Pretribs also insist on separating the "church" from "Israel" - but when you aren't looking (or thinking) they blithely "prove" pretrib by the Jewish feasts in Leviticus, the stages of a Hebrew wedding (Google "Pretrib Rapture: A Staged Event"), and the one "taken" and the other "left" in "Jewish" Matthew 24!
Amazingly, Jewishness (and even anti-Jewishness) has been uncovered even in pretrib dispensationalism's 19th century foundation (Google "Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism")!
The current "blood moons" craze (promoted by lunar persons including rock musician Scottie Clarke and John Hagee) is tied to - you guessed it - the same Jewish feast days.
Yes, there's something colored red in the future of the church, but I don't have moons in mind. What will really turn red will be the collective faces of many when it finally dawns on them that their any-moment fly-away was nothing more than an end time hoax!
