THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION. I do not know a lot, but one thing I have studied extensively is eschatology and the book of Revelation. There is a huge lack of knowledge of God’s Word among His people and I am concerned many will be swept away with this evil current that is sweeping the nation and our world. Last summer, the Spirit spoke to me, “the world is being groomed”.
Grooming is the predatory act of maneuvering another individual into a position that makes them more isolated, dependent, likely to trust, and more vulnerable to abusive behavior. This antichrist spirit is grooming the world to obey the government’s abusive tactics. Please be aware!
The mark of the beast is real. It is an actual mark or inscription Gk charagma, “a scratch or etching, stamp as a badge of servitude”. The mark is not a vaccine, but a vaccine mandate is a good start in grooming the world to eventually receive this “mark”. Some will take it out of fear because without this mark, you will not be able to buy or sell anything. (Rev 13:16-18) This means, you will not be able to buy food or luxury items, go on vacations, eat in restaurants, travel the world, go to sports games, have health care, etc.
Things the world loves to do will be stripped away along with the availability of needful services, if you do not receive this “mark”. When you see a global agenda of government mandating these things, be warned. It is going to get worse. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. Every prophecy in Scripture has been fulfilled and will be fulfilled.
God is not messing around with people. The time is short. “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” Rev 3:10-11
The church in Philadelphia was a faithful church that kept the Word of God and did not deny Christ. These endured opposition from the world and resisted conforming to evil trends of other apostate churches. They also persevered in loyalty to Jesus and the truth. Because of their perseverance in these things, God promises to deliver them from the hour of temptation.
This promise is identical to Paul’s promise to the Thessalonians, “and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.” I Thes 1:10 NKJV This promise is for all of God’s faithful and loyal servants throughout the ages. This hour includes the divinely appointed time of trial, wrath and distress that will come upon all the world in the last days of this age, just prior to the establishment of Christ’s return to set up His kingdom.
The Bible reveals the following truths:(1) this time of trial involves God’s wrath upon the ungodly and apostate Christians, those who have not remained loyal to Him and His Word. (2) this is also Satan’s wrath upon God’s creation and those who accept God’s salvation during this terrible time. There will be hunger, thirst, exposure to elements and great suffering. These will experience the natural catastrophes of war, famine and death. They will be persecuted and tortured, many will suffer martyrdom. They will undergo ravages of Satan and demonic forces, evil and violence from wicked people and persecution by the antichrist. They will suffer loss of home and will flee in fear.
These things are already taking place across the globe and will ramp up as history nears the end. (3) for those who overcome before that “hour” arrives, God will keep them from that hour of trial. It is a promise of Scripture. I believe it will be through the rapture, the catching up of the faithful to meet Christ before God pours out His wrath.
This deliverance is a reward for those who persevere in keeping God’s Word in true faith. It is only for the faithful. ““Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”Matthew 24:45-51 NKJV
Before this day arrives, things in the world will grow worse and worse. Evil activity, murder, civil unrest and unrighteousness, war, etc. will escalate. Chaos and confusion will abound. God is in the process of separating the wheat from the chaff. He is not messing around, and neither is our enemy. If you have been playing at being a Christian, you need to repent. If you have fallen away, you need to repent. If you are lukewarm, you need to repent. If you are not taking the Word of God serious, you need to repent.
The day of the circus church is over. Get your heart right with God, purify your heart and cleanse your lips. Come out of Babylon and stop sinning. The time is short.
You do not want to be left behind to endure the wrath of God Almighty. Once the Ark door closed, the rain started and it was too late. ““But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”Matthew 24:36-39 NKJV#RunYourRace
