The Seven Seals – the onslaught continues. Revelation chapter 8

I have felt led to say something for several weeks now, so here goes. Father, I ask, in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, that these words find their way into the hands of those that you have intended, and that they carry the weight and power that you intended them too. I ask Father that you embed these words, no matter how foolish I think they sound, into the hearts and minds of those that will come to know Jesus Christ and that they be willing to share your passion whether it be newly found or like a flickering candle has burned within them for some time now. Cause your life to erupt inside of those who find you and give them the courage to face what ever comes their way. I also pray for those that will not make it in the rapture, and must prove their love for God by giving their lives. Give them a supernatural strength that they did not think was in them. And Father, above all, because your word will not go void or lose its strength, I ask that no matter what comes their wa…

An interlude between the seals. Revelation 7

How often do we, if we have gone to a play, think of an interlude as a break in the action. Things calm down for a moment and you get the chance to relieve yourself, and get a drink before the next scene begins. I cannot say that this is that, but this part of scripture takes us away from the destruction, and seems to be a sea of calm in the midst of the horror. Some are unwilling to accept this time period immediately after the rapture as God's wrath upon the nations and judgment against Israel for rejecting him. Allow me to play out a scenario; one that I have shared repeatedly, and have now seen played on television, and called “After Armageddon.” In it, widespread power loss was one of the main implications. It is surprising how damaging the lack of power can be, but who is to say what will happen almost simultaneously with the departure of the church. A large magnitude EMP blast will knock out power to everything. No water, sewer, banking, or the ability to even buy anythi…

Revelation 6:17 MKJV for the great day of His wrath has come

Revelation 6:17 MKJV for the great day of His wrath has come, and who will be able to stand?A study on “the great day of the wrath.” The concept of the day of the Lord, and no this is not a different time frame, is scattered throughout both the old and new testament. A passage that is familiar to many is: 1 Thessalonians 5:2 AMP (2) For you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the [return of the] Lord will come [as unexpectedly and suddenly] as a thief in the night. One of the first things I want to ask yourself is, who is this wrath intended for? The simple answer is: not the believer. I wish I could assure you that it was none of you, but I cannot. The simple qualifier is a personal, loving relationship with Jesus Christ and of course, the Father, but Matthew 25 is the place where Jesus spoke of the ten virgins, all headed to the wedding. Five were unprepared, not having enough oil and ran out before the groom came. At the most inconvenient time they had to go out and try t…
