is a rather unemotional discussion for me. You see, I will not be here.
The last Great Moments in World History, on the Rapture of the Lord's Church,
explained to you that we are down wind from the Rapture. It is blowing our
way, and when God is ready, Jesus Christ will take all of us true Bible believers
in His salvation out of the earth to heaven. True believers are not appointed
unto wrath by our Lord:
1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation
by our Lord Jesus Christ,
is both pathetic and funny is to hear from these Reconstruationists and Reformed
scholars who are preparing to go through the Wrath of God. Also, Marv Rosenthal
is getting ready to watch the Beast take over the world and the horses of wrath
come upon the earth. Marv cannot fool God-- Marv, who I believe is truly
born again, will go with me, and I suppose I shall be changed and won't even be
able to say, "I told you so :-)
you are so stupid as to reject the Lord Jesus Christ's salvation offered to you,
then I shall tell you what you are in for. It will be exciting my friend,
but you won't enjoy it:
6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the
noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2 And I saw,
and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given
unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3 And when he had
opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat
thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and
there was given unto him a great sword.
5 And when he had opened the third
seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black
horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I
heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny,
and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the
fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse:
and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power
was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and
with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
9 And when
he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were
slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou
not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11 And white
robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they
should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their
brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake;
and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her
untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed
as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved
out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and
the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and
every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the
face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Let's get the whole
picture-- there is a lot of activity during these three and a helaf
8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood,
and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and
all green grass was burnt up.
8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were
a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of
the sea became blood;
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in
the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning
as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the
fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and
the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters,
because they were made bitter.
12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third
part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part
of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not
for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
13 And I beheld, and heard
an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe,
woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet
of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
Revelation 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven
unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke
of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke
of the pit.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and
unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither
any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal
of God in their foreheads.
5 And to them it was given that they should not
kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was
as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6 And in those days
shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death
shall flee from them.
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses
prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and
their faces were as the faces of men.
8 And they had hair as the hair of
women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates,
as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound
of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10 And they had tails like
unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt
men five months.
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of
the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek
tongue hath his name Apollyon.
12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come
two woes more hereafter.
13 ¶ And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard
a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound
in the great river Euphrates.
15 And the four angels were loosed, which were
prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third
part of men.
16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred
thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the
horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire,
and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of
lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and
by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19 For their power is
in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and
had heads, and with them they do hurt.
20 And the rest of the men which were
not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that
they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and
stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication,
nor of their thefts.
is more my friend:
Revelation 11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven,
saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of
his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
16 And the four and twenty
elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped
17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and
wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast
18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time
of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto
thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small
and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
19 And the
temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of
his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an
earthquake, and great hail.
is the wrath described again, and some new twists are added. If you choose
to reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I assure you you will be very sorry, but
it will be too late. This will be your world just before you go to hell
Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven
angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell
a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and
upon them which worshipped his image.
3 And the second angel poured out his
vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living
soul died in the sea.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the
rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the
angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and
shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of
saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true
and righteous are thy judgments.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial
upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath
power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom
was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 And blasphemed
the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river
Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the
east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come
out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of
the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working
miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to
gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I
come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he
walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into
a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel
poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple
of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18 And there were voices,
and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not
since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations
fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup
of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away,
and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail
out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God
because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
make the scene complete, all who refuse Christ's offer of salvation will get in
on history's most horrifying war. Will you be here in this scene?
And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying,
Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great
whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the
blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her
smoke rose up for ever and ever.
4 And the four and twenty elders and the
four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen;
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all
ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
6 And I heard
as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and
as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage
of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was
granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine
linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed
are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto
me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship
him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy
brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus
is the spirit of prophecy.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white
horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness
he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his
head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called
The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon
white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth
goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule
them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath
of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written,
KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun;
and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst
of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the
flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and
the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I
saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together
to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before
him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and
them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire
burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him
that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls
were filled with their flesh.
there was an Old Testament prophet named Daniel who was given by God a rather
detailed account of how the Great Tribulation would progress both politically
and spiritually. With this I shall conclude. Read you fate sinner....
This passage starts with
the discussion of the last days of the Greek and Roman empire, and then it jumps
directly into the future when Satan shall rise up and rule in the earth personally.
The reason for this big leap from Rome to the Great Tribulation just ahead
of us is this: The Church age, or some call it The Age of Grace, in which
we live is a parenthetic age which is the period in which God Almighty has ordained
that the whole world, not just Jews, would receive the Good News of the Gospel.
For the last 2000 years we have lived in an era when the Jews are in dispersion
and waiting for their Messiah. During this era, Christ has been building
His Church out of the nations of Gentiles in the world.
in about verse 3 you must make about a 2500 year leap from Daniel's day, past
the Greek era and Roman Empire which were actually AFTER Daniel's day, and you
drop into the very near present when God vents His wrath on this world by turning
Satan loose to torment humanity.
Daniel 11:1 Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm
and to strengthen him.
2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there
shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than
they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against
the realm of Grecia.
3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule
with great dominion, and do according to his will.
4 And when he shall stand
up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of
heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled:
for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.
the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be
strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.
6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king's
daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement:
but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his
arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her,
and he that strengthened her in these times.
7 But out of a branch of her
roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall
enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them,
and shall prevail:
8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods,
with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and
he shall continue more years than the king of the north.
9 So the king of
the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land.
10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces:
and one shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through: then shall he return,
and be stirred up, even to his fortress.
11 And the king of the south shall
be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king
of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall
be given into his hand.
12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his
heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall
not be strengthened by it.
13 For the king of the north shall return, and
shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come
after certain years with a great army and with much riches.
14 And in those
times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers
of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.
15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the
most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his
chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.
16 But he
that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand
before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be
17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his
whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give
him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side,
neither be for him.
18 After this shall he turn his face unto the isles,
and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach
offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon
19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but
he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.
20 Then shall stand up in his
estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall
be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.
21 And in his estate shall
stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom:
but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall
be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.
23 And after the league
made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become
strong with a small people.
24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest
places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done,
nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and
riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even
for a time.
25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the
king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred
up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they
shall forecast devices against him.
26 Yea, they that feed of the portion
of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall
27 And both these kings' hearts shall be to do mischief, and
they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end
shall be at the time appointed.
28 Then shall he return into his land with
great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do
exploits, and return to his own land.
29 At the time appointed he shall return,
and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.
30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be
grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall
he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the
31 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.
32 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.
33 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.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall
be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.
35 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
36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt
himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things
against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished:
for that that is determined shall be done.
37 Neither shall he regard the
God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall
magnify himself above all.
38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of
forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver,
and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
39 Thus shall he do in the
most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with
glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for
40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him:
and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots,
and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries,
and shall overflow and pass over.
41 He shall enter also into the glorious
land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his
hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall
43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of
silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians
shall be at his steps.
44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north
shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and
utterly to make away many.
45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace
between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end,
and none shall help him.
1 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.
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.
3 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.
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words,
and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and
knowledge shall be increased.
5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there
stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other
on that side of the bank of the river.
6 And one said to the man clothed
in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the
end of these wonders?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon
the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto
heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times,
and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy
people, all these things shall be finished.
8 And I heard, but I understood
not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time
of the end.
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the
wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise
11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be
taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a
thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and
cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
13 But go
thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the
end of the days.
DON'T WNAT TO BE HERE TO SEE THESE EVENTS.
is the delilerance which Christ offers you, but you must receive it NO before
the Church is taken out of this world:
10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart:
that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess
with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath
raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man
believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
