Isaiah 26 - The Rapture and The Day of the Lord

The name of this website is "Behold, I come quickly," because Jesus is coming quickly. I believe 100% that we are the last generation, standing on the doorstep of the end of the age. The Rapture (see posts here and here) and the Day of the Lord (see hereare just around the corner.

I have no doubt about it.

I just realized something else this morning, something the Lord showed me: Isaiah 26 ties it all together, both the Rapture and the Day of the Lord.

Read chapter 25 if you want to get the full sense of prophetic imagery in this passage. But here we'll start with chapter 26, verse 19:

"Your dead will live;
Their corpses will rise.
You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy,
For your dew is as the dew of the dawn,
And the earth will give birth to the departed spirits."
 - Isaiah 26:19

In this verse, the spirits of the dead (the Lord's dead) rise again out of the grave, out of the earth. Sounds kind of creepy, but where have we heard this before? The Apostle Paul elaborates on this event in 1 Thessalonians:

"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord."
 - 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17

When Jesus comes, the Lord's dead will rise out of the earth and ascend into the air, and then those who are still alive will also go up to meet the Lord. This is the Rapture, the just-in-time rescue of all the saints.

Continuing with Isaiah:

"Come, my people, enter into your rooms
And close your doors behind you;
Hide for a little while
Until indignation runs its course."
 - Isaiah 26:20

Jesus hides his people for a little while until the indignation runs its course. What is the indignation? This is Satan's one-world beast kingdom, the New World Order, the Great Tribulation, the time of distress such has never occurred nor ever will again. It lasts three and a half years, according to Daniel and the Book of Revelation. We are hidden away and protected during this time. Hidden in heaven.

"For behold, the Lord is about to come out from His place
To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;
And the earth will reveal her bloodshed
And will no longer cover her slain."
 - Isaiah 26:21

Ah, here is the Day of the Lord! When the Lamb of God rides on a white horse and leads the armies of heaven to defend Israel, defeat the enemies of God and establish his throne in Jerusalem.

"In that day the Lord will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
With His fierce and great and mighty sword,
Even Leviathan the twisted serpent;
And He will kill the dragon who lives in the sea."
 - Isaiah 27:1

Who is Leviathan, the fleeing serpent, the twisted serpent, the dragon who lives in the sea (of humanity)? You know who that is. He will be bound for a thousand years on the Day of the Lord. Then, finally, the earth will know peace and righteous rule.

Come soon, Jesus!

The Armenian Genocide, the Nature of Evil, and the Unfathomable Love of Christ

This article by David Kupelian is one of the best exposés on the nature of evil and its inverse - the unfathomable love of Christ - that I have ever read:

'A distant signal was given – it sounded something like a trumpet …'

The Day of the Lord Is Near!

The Day of the Lord is coming soon! God has impressed on me several times recently how He looks forward to this magnificent day. 

What is the Day of the Lord? This is when the nations of the world gather their armies to attack Israel, and Jesus himself comes down to Jerusalem leading the armies of heaven to defeat the enemies of God and bind Satan for a thousand years. This Day is also the moment when the house of Israel, the Hebrew people as a nation, finally recognize Jesus as their messiah and embrace him. After the battle, Jesus will establish his throne in Jerusalem and reign for a thousand years on earth. We will no longer have governments run by men since Jesus himself will rule from Jerusalem as King of kings. This time is also creation's Sabbath rest, when the lion lies down with the lamb and there is finally peace on earth, after 6,000 years of striving under the fall of man and dominion of Satan.

The Day of the Lord is the final battle and culmination of this age, and marks the beginning of the Millennial Kingdom. I believe the Lord wants us to realize this Day is coming soon and to look forward to it with the same anticipation and enthusiasm He does!

On January 3, 2015, 10:44 a.m., I was sitting in a cabin in the mountains of Idaho and had read this passage in Ezekiel:

"In My zeal and in My blazing wrath I declare that on that day there will surely be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. The fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all the creeping things that creep on the earth, and all the men who are on the face of the earth will shake at My presence; the mountains also will be thrown down, the steep pathways will collapse and every wall will fall to the ground."
- Ezekiel 38:19-20

Then I heard the window frames squeak and felt the floor shake. It felt like an earthquake! It was! Later in the day I pulled up the Drudge Report and saw an article about an earthquake in Challis, Idaho:

But it was more than an earthquake. God was telling me something: Pay attention to the earthquake, pay attention to the details in the passage. I looked at other prophetic passages in Scriptures with similar details (the Lord coming to defend Israel, the sun and moon darkened, earthquakes, Mount of Olives split in two, etc.) and realized they all referred to the same event. They are all descriptions of the Day of the Lord:

  • Zechariah 9:10-17 - The Lord of hosts appears over Israel and defends his people
  • Zechariah 12-14 - The Lord defends Jerusalem and the people turn to him in repentance
  • Joel 2-3 - The Day of the Lord and the great army of God
  • Matthew 24:27-31 - The Coming of the Lord
  • Revelation 16:16-21 - Battle of Armageddon. 
  • Revelation 19:11 to 20:3 - The Lamb of God rides on a white horse with a sword, leading the armies of heaven to defeat the enemies of God, the beast, the false prophet and Satan.
By reading all of these passages, you will have a great understanding of that magnificent day.

Here is a summary of events of the Day of the Lord:

  • In the latter days of this age, the Jews will return to inhabit the land of Israel and live securely. This has been fulfilled, and continues to happen as Jews from around the world move to Israel.
  • A great army of many nations from far and near will gather to attack Israel. God's fury will arise against the attacking army.
  • The sun and moon will be darkened and the stars will fall from the sky.
  • Jesus will appear in the sky as a warrior king leading the armies of heaven to battle the enemies of God.
  • Those who went up to meet the Lord in the air during the Rapture will ride in the army of heaven. At this time, we will have immortal bodies like the angels. (See Revelation 19 and pay close attention to what the bride of the Lamb and the army of heaven are wearing. It's the same!)
  • There will be a great earthquake in Israel. The Mount of Olives will be split from east to west.
  • The people of Israel will fight as mighty warriors with the Lord defending them. Even so, two-thirds of the people will perish, and one-third will come through the fire, refined as silver and tested as gold.  
  • There will be a great panic among the soldiers in the invading army, and they will turn against one another. Fire, hail and brimstone will fall on them and a plague will rot their flesh.
  • The invading army will be completely destroyed and birds will eat their flesh. It will take seven months for Israel to bury all the fallen soldiers.
  • All the nations will know the Lord is the Holy One of Israel.
  • The house of Israel will weep in repentance and embrace Jesus as their Messiah, and God will pour out his Spirit on them.
  • Jesus, the Lamb of God, will be king over all the earth with his throne in Jerusalem.
  • "And in that day the mountains will drip with sweet wine, and the hills will flow with milk, and all the brooks of Judah will flow with water; and a spring will go out from the house of the Lord to water the valley of Shittim." - Joel 3:18
I am convinced God very much looks forward to this Day. If He didn't, He wouldn't have mentioned it so many times in Scripture!

So where are we in the timeline of apocalyptic events? I believe it goes like this:

1) The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride (right now).
2) Rapture
3) Great Tribulation - 42 months of Satan's one-world beast kingdom
4) Day of the Lord
5) Millennial Kingdom of Christ
6) New Heaven and New Earth - eternity with God

In the meantime, eyes on Jesus and persevere to the end!

Seek Justice, Walk Righteous, Be Shrewd as the Devil

I just wanted to pass along what the Lord has impressed on me about how to operate in the days ahead:

"Seek justice,
Reprove the ruthless,
Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow."
- Isaiah 1:17

Seek justice. In this verse, the God is pointing out what Israel needed to do to repent and turn back to him. The people's failure to seek justice provoked God's anger and judgment against Judah and Jerusalem.  

Note that seeking justice has two aspects:

  1. Stand up against oppressors.
  2. Stand up for the oppressed.

"Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves."

- Matthew 10:16

Be shrewd as the devil and walk righteous. If there is ever a time when Jesus' disciples are going out as sheep among wolves, it is the days ahead.

Serpents, in this verse, are a metaphor for the devil. And wow, is the devil shrewd! Jesus wants his children to be as shrewd as the devil: Wise, knowing, clever, canny.

The other half of this verse is to walk in the ways of the Lord: Love, truth, righteousness. 

"But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy."
- James 3:7

Finally, be at peace. God is a God of peace.

Wake Up, You Live in The Matrix #6 - Google searches are censored

I just wanted to let you know that in spite of Google's corporate motto, "Don't be evil," it is evil. Google is a front end for the NSA that feeds data about you and me to the government. But now Google is also censoring search results to conform with government propaganda.

As an example, the chart below shows daily traffic to my blog over the last month. Notice that in the last week traffic has fallen drastically. Well, my blog stopped receiving nearly all Google search referrals about a week ago, even though prior to that point Google search referrals were growing. Why? I believe Google censored my blog so it doesn't appear as high in the rankings. Instead of coming up on, say, page 1 or 2, it is more like page 100. So people can't find it.

So if you are searching on a controversial topic, don't use Google. I would use, or instead, or one of the credible news and information sites listed in this blog post:

P.S. Dave Hodges at The Common Sense Show confirmed that Google is censoring information on its search engine about the Jade Helm martial law drill:

The Washington Post and Google Conspire to Conceal the Truth about Jade Helm 15

Google began censoring this blog after I posted the Alex Jones video about Jade Helm.

P.P.S. By the way, shadowbanning is a term for when social media or Internet search companies artificially suppress a person's content, website or account in their rankings. It is a deceptive way to censor. Google, Facebook and Twitter all engage in this practice to shape public opinion and push ideological agendas.
