Will we have to go through the tribulation?

Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God."(Revelation 16:1 NASB) Make a note of the words, “the wrath of God.” If you do not know my blog and how I think, then may I make something clear. This time that is coming upon the earth, often called the day of the Lord, is not the tribulation; it is the time of wrath. Tribulation, as Jesus put it, is a way of life for the believer. Even my mother asked me, will we have to go through the tribulation? Because I see events already upon us that look and sound like aspects of God's wrath during the seven-year period, it is possible that we are already there. Add to this the testimony of a young Jewish boy. Jewish only by nationality at the time of his testimony, died, went to heaven, spoke extensively with Jesus – the Messiah and came back to life. One of the things he said as he was questioned by the rabbis, was that we are in the last seven…

Behold it's coming. Ezekiel 39:7-10.

I closed the last study of Ezekiel 39 ending on verse 6. Why then bring it into this continuation of chapter 39? Because it helps to establish context.

Ezekiel 39:5-7 NASB "You will fall on the open field; for it is I who have spoken," declares the Lord GOD. 6) "And I will send fire upon Magog and those who inhabit the coastlands in safety; they will know that I am the LORD. 7) "My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

Taken up from the remotest parts of the north and brought against the mountains of Israel, Gog and all those with him will come. Few of us realize we are dealing with the Scythians; fewer understand that the Scythians extended into the far eastern regions of China, Siberia, the Western European nations, and South into Egypt. 
All this is done with one purpose in mind, that “the nations will know that I am t…

I am against you O Gog. Ezekiel 39 verses 1 through 6.

While the study will be focused on Ezekiel 39, I saw such strong similarities to Ezekiel 38 that I felt I needed to quickly probe Ezekiel 38 once again.
And the Word of Jehovah came to me, saying, Son of man, set your face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him. And say, So says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the chief ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. And I will turn you back, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed most perfectly, a great assembly with buckler and shield, all of them swordsmen; Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all his bands; the house of Togarmah from the recesses of the north, and all his bands; and many peoples with you. Ezekiel 38:1-6 MKJV)
One would assume some time has passed as God is desirous of emphasizing once again, His burning passion against the e…

Daniel chapter 12, verses 3-13. Notes I used to lead Bible Study

Those who have insight will shine I have so many thoughts running through my head on this subject. Let's break it down in simple terms. Why do some of us get what is going on around us, while others, still espousing the same old worn out rhetoric, say, we have been looking for Christ for over 2500 years and he hasn't come back, so stop talking about His soon return. My own pastor told me that prophetic teaching about end times are peripherals and apparently we shouldn't waste any time on teaching about what is coming. Others, just will not get understand, they don't want to. And yet, there are those words - "Those who have insight will shine.

What did Daniel learn?

Daniel 12:3 NASB "Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

Is God being selective about whom he allows to understand, or is it that he only accepts the wise? I don't beli…

Daniel chapter twelve, verse 2. Yes, it's just one verse.

Verse one transported us through “a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation..”, and we now find ourselves looking into the book of life; therefore, we have to be standing before the Great White Throne. If that is the case, then we have just jumped forward in time by one thousand years. Daniel 12:2 NASB "Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt. “Those who sleep in the dust of the ground.” Are dead! The Psalmist tells us, “the dead know nothing.” Does it matter where they came from chronologically? No, but having missed the catching away of the church, you can easily place most them in the group as being from the nations. Having missed the catching away of the church are there other possibilities? Yes, those who assume they automatically belonged to the family of God merely because they attended somewhere, and then there are the Jews. “wi…
