PICTURE THE TRIBULATION

13,November, 20013
Wednesday Bible lesson,

In the following I forgot to get the credit for the quoted parts.  My apologies.  I have tried to identify them in this post with Quote marks and when I used them on Wednesday night I tried not to take credit.  In the future, I will try to add the credits.

THIS DISASTER IN THE Philippines
It’s the worse I can remember.
I have never experienced anything even remotely close
10,000 dead
Whole towns destroyed

In war every one expects that total destruction is only a hairs breath away.

BUT if it happens when you are comfortable,
not expecting to die or your family to perish, your home gone, not expecting that tomorrow you will loose EVERYTHING.

It was the same in Noah’s day – just before the flood

Mat 24:38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

I AM GOING TO USE THIS DISASTER TO PICTURE THE TRIBULATION.

It may sometime seem that I am saying that the Filipino’s deserved this
THEY DIDN’T deserve it any more then – well – us

SO did you get that – I am not saying that the Filipinos deserved what they got any more then us

America  HAS DONE MORE TO DESERVE God’s wrath then the Filipinos

AND I feel a little uneasy using this apocalyptic disaster.  But I hope the reader will understand that everything that happens can and should be referenced to Scriptural truth.

What has happened in the Philippians is a picture of what is coming upon America and all the earth

ISRAEL experienced the blessing and cursing of God.
They lived a hard primitive desert survival life.
Yet they rejected God time after time, and accepted a
god after their own image.

Gen 5:3  And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:

History proves that man is hard wired – it is in his DNA – to want what God hates.

That is called sin

Rom 5:12  Wherefore, as by one man [that would be Adam ] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Jer 17:9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Jer 13:10  This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.

The disaster in the Philippians was so horrifying that it seems beyond my capacity to envision it.

There are at least 10,000 dead.  Whole entire towns have been totally destroyed

That kind of destruction is foreign to us here in America.  For sure, we have had plenty of disasters both from nature and some from evil men.  But never have we had 10,000 dead in one day!

Our debt also is unrealistic.  We are in debt 17 trillion dollars. 
That is also too big a number to imagine.

  • We are told a debt of 13 trillion dollars is nothing important.
    Obama care that is important
     
  • What about Christian martyrs, is that not as important as Obama care?
    the News Media doesn’t  even mention anything about Christian martyrs

Some Facts about the Persecution of Christians

  • “More Christians were martyred in the 20th century than in all previous centuries combined”
  • About 165,000 Christians are martyred for their faith each year
  • Currently over 200 million Christians are being persecuted worldwide
  • Christians are persecuted in 131 of the world’s 193 countries [31 countries]
  • Nigeria: In 2010 Christians suffered terror from Muslim extremists. Whole village were massacred
  • Iran: Its parliament believes Muslims who change their faith should be put to death
  • India: up to 70,000 in Orissa have been forced to flee their homes in riots against Christians
  • Indonesia: Between 2000-2002 Muslims slaughtered 10,000 Christians
  • Iraq: half of Iraq’s Christians have fled the country since the fall of Saddam Hussein”The Obama administration forbids the military of soul winning. They can’t talk about the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Rev 19:16), nor can they pass out tracts and Bibles.  This began in the Bush administration but President Obama has taken it to new levels.
    We will  
    never win   the war against Islam, unless we send missionaries and let our soldiers witness for Christ Jesus.
    (ops almost forgot the PC rules.  I meant Militant terrorism, not Islam.  Wouldn’t want to tell it like it is, and the like it is, is that militant terrorism is following Islam the way it is laid out.  It is the peaceful Muslims, and they are the majority, who are the Islam apostates.)

I believe the war against terror would end if we assaulted them with the gospel of God, the gospel of peace.
That gospel is laid out for you in First Corinthians Chapter 15.

  • “Egypt: Under Islamist pressure, Coptic Christians are being forced from their homes”
  • “Syria: By 2012, most of the 80,000 Christians in Homs had been ‘cleansed’ from their homes”

“A conference gathered near Budapest said, the number of Christians killed every year for their faith is about 105,000. And these are only those who were put to death because they were Christians. It does not include those killed as victims of war.”

  • What about Iran going nuclear? Is that as important as Obama care?

“Like his liberal heir Obama, Clinton came into office with zero foreign policy experience and a tendency to believe whatever sob story he was told by the world’s worst dictators.”
[Presidents Carter, Clinton, and now Obama, never met a dictator they didn’t have some compassion for.  And the Moslems are at the top of the; Dictators I Love List]

“The mass murdering Iranian theocracy, openly dedicated to the destruction of Israel and sitting on top of the planet’s third largest oil reserves,”

[Who put the oil in the ground?]

” inexplicably claimed in the early 1990s that they needed nuclear energy to power their economy. Likewise North Korea was sorely in need of electricity to run its concentration camps.

Clinton signed the Agreed Framework of 1994 that allowed North Korea to build a light water reactor for “civilian” purposes.

Iran followed suit in 1995 when they restarted construction on the Bushehr power plant with the help of Russian and German engineers and the blessing of the Clinton administration.”

[Then] “To the great surprise of liberals everywhere, in 2006 North Korea exploded their first atomic bomb  ”

  • The Iran tell us whatever that will buy them more time.
    They figure If
    America hasn’t stopped us yet then the American liberals are just a bunch of dreamers (Jude 1:8) who will do anything and believe any lie to promote a socialism – Communism America.

Paul Joseph Goebbels was Hitler’s propaganda minister and I think he said, if you tell a big enough lie and repeat it often enough then all will believe it.

The article goes on
“Allowing those two homicidal governments access to nuclear technology, when it could have easily been prevented, was one of the worst political decisions of the 20th century. Political pressure by the Clinton administration probably would’ve been enough to stop Iran and North Korea from building the nuclear power plants, but if that didn’t do the job he could’ve ordered the military to take them out. Nip it in the bud so to speak.”

Clinton’s stupidity regarding nuclear proliferation stands starkly in contrast to Israel, which responded to Iraq and Syria nuclear power plants with warplanes and precision guided bombs.”

Israel can’t afford to give Iran the benefit of a doubt.
Iran is an enemy who would murder every Jewish man, woman and, yes, babies.  That is a provable fact that would hold up in any court of law.

We can give Iran the benefit of a doubt and we do, but For Israel it is life or death.
For us it is no big deal and we need the oil.

“If Clinton had the same foresight as the Israelis we wouldn’t be in the mess we are now in with Iran”
and the media should be reminding the American people of this every chance they get.

“In 2005 North Korea agreed to a deal that was celebrated the world over,” Netanyahu reminded the assembly, but then “a year later, North Korea exploded its first nuclear device.”

  • What about betraying Israel, is that as important as Obama Care?

This is a lesson coming up

The United States has put pressure on Israel to give up land for peace. 

This started in in 1993 with the OSLO peace accord

Israel is God’s land
Psa 105:6  O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
Psa 105:7  He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
Psa 105:8  He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
Psa 105:9  Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
Psa 105:10  And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
Psa 105:11  Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

  • What about abortion is that as important as Obama care?

Mat 24:12  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

In 2008, approximately 1.21 million ABORTIONS took place in the U.S., – From 1973 through 2008, nearly 50 million legal abortions have occurred in the U.S. (AGI).

  • What about America’s love for the immoral life style, is that as important as Oboma Care

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Gay rights advocates from both parties are newly upbeat about the prospects for Senate passage of legislation that would bar employers from discriminating against workers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
The outlook for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act reflects the nation’s growing tolerance of homosexuality and the GOP’s political calculation as it looks for supporters beyond its core base of older voters.”

2Pe 2:6  And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly

  • What about terrorism Is that as important as Obama Care? Sometimes but only when it is big enough. 

“By Daniel Burke, CNN Belief Blog co-editor Washington (CNN) – As terrorism increasingly becomes a tactic of warfare, the number of attacks and fatalities soared to a record high in
More than 8,500 terrorist attacks killed nearly 15,500 people last year
That’s a 69% rise in attacks and an 89% jump in fatalities from 2011″,

There is coming a time when God’s wrath will be poured out on this world

and the Filipino Typhoon that killed at least ten thousand people is a picture of the future last day events

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. [wow It will be worse then Noah’s day}
Mat 24:22  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Luk 21:10  Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
Luk 21:11  And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Rev 6:15  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;
Rev 6:16  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:
Rev 6:17  For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

  • God’s wrath comes to this world for only one reason and you will find it in John 3:35 – 36
    Joh 3:35  The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
    Joh 3:36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

God loves His Son
and if you are in Him then God loves you.
BUT if you are not in the Lord Jesus Christ then you are under God’s wrath.
All may be well with you but you are in a mine field without a way to get out.  You may get lucky but sooner or latter you will step on one of those mines and then you will know the hurt and pain of rejecting the one who paid the price for your sins, and shaking your fist in God’s face, telling Him that you will do it your way.

“In the Philippians
Bodies are piled in the streets as makeshift mortuaries are overrun and Philippine typhoon rescue teams warn death toll will ‘rise sharply’ from the 10,000 already confirmed”

The destruction – is beyond comprehension

The pain – is beyond comprehension

The agony – is beyond comprehension

“Thousands of bodies are being piled up on the streets of the Philippines after the devastating Typhoon Haiyan, as aid agencies warn the death toll will ‘rise sharply’.”

EXTRAPOLATE that into the 7 years of the great Tribulation.

“Thousands of children have been killed in the category-five storm and one charity worker said two out of every five corpses she had seen were youngsters.”

“‘Many are separated from their families amid the devastation, and all are in desperate need of food, water and shelter.”

Rev 8:11  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.

“In the worst-hit areas, 235mph winds created 20ft waves that are thought to have killed between 10,000 and 15,000 and left 500,000 homeless after their houses were reduced to splinters.”

JESUS SAID
Mat 24:37  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Mat 24:38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Mat 24:39  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Today the Middle East is a war zone
Luk 21:10  Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

“17 Afghans beheaded in insurgent attack on party

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Insurgents beheaded 17 civilians in a Taliban-controlled area of southern Afghanistan,”

Rev 20:4  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

SEPTEMBER 21 2013 A MALL IN KENYA WAS ATTACKED BY MUSLIMS
“Eyes gouged out, bodies hanging from hooks, and fingers removed with pliers’: Horrific claims of torture emerge as soldiers reveal gory Kenyan mall massacre details

  • Kenyan soldiers claim to find scenes of torture by mall terrorists
  • They say children found dead in food fridges with knives still in bodies
  • Men were said to have been castrated and had fingers removed”

All of that pictures the BEAST of Revelation and his followers

Luk 21:11  And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

“Super-typhoon Haiyan struck with such force on Friday that entire villages were flattened, ships were swept inland and corpses were left hanging from trees.”

Rev 18:9  And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
Rev 18:10  Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Rev 18:17  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

Rev 18:21  And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Thanks for reading the above.  May God bless and give you wisdom, courage, strength and absolute conviction, that Jesus is coming back just as He promised He would.

BE READY, GET IN THE FIGHT, He is in absolute control of the future, rest assured of that.

 

One thought on “PICTURE THE TRIBULATION

  1. I haven’t been keeping up with the latest in the Philippines. I guess I am too wrapped up in my own life and pretend that all that destruction is not real. I believe if I dwelt on it and really thought on it I would be in a deep depression. Thank you for the analogy of this and the Great Tribulation. This is a great study. We need to open our eyes and seek the Lord before it’s too late.
