The War Nobody Prepared For!

. 

.

.

.

.

What if an extremely reliable source warned you that a great and strong and very evil army was going to come against you and fight against you?

And this very reliable source told you that you really really need to get yourself ready for that war?

.

But then, as you began to get ready, all your friends began to hug you and embrace you and tell you not to worry!

.

“No”, they say, “You don’t need to worry about that! Because,” they explained, “the same reliable source who warned you to get ready, is actually going to remove you far away, just prior to that war, to a place of complete peace and safety!”

ENJOYING THIS SELFISH WORLD!

But, dear Reader, just listen to the Word of the Lord… “Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.” Isaiah 56:12.

.

Yes, while we’re going after the cares and pleasures of this world, that Great and Terrible Day of the Lord is fast approaching!

“THEY CRY, ‘PEACE, PEACE, WHEN THERE IS NO PEACE!”

.

Yes, and that is exactly what is happening in the Christian world!

.

The Bible warns… “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1st Thessalonians 5:3.

.

Yes, for about 60 years, since the 1950’s, the Christian community has been gradually changing its stance on the Book of Revelation, now saying that most of it doesn’t concern the Church! In essence, “Peace and safety” is what we’re now saying!

.

But you see, while the Bible warns us over and over, to get our armor on and be ready for battle, we are being lulled to sleep by those who are now saying that God is going to remove the Church from the earth, just prior to that great Day of the Lord!

.

That’s right, Satan, it seems, has been feeding us a great big lie! And we have bought into that lie, “hook, line and sinker”, as they say!

.

Many voices have been saying “peace and safety”, when in fact, they should be crying… “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;” Joel 2:1.

A LIE REPEATED OFTEN

Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister for Adolph Hitler said, “If you repeat a lie often enough,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bundesarchiv_Bild_146-1968-101-20A,_Joseph_Goebbels.jpg people will believe it. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.”

.

The sad fact is, there has been a false doctrine, known as the “The Pre-tribulation Rapture”, which is found nowhere in the Bible! And just like Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, many have been trumpeting this non-biblical dogma called, “Pre-tribulation Rapture”, day and night, via TV and radio, and pulpits!

.

But the fact is, God never calls His return, “The Rapture”. Never! That is a totally fabricated name! Yes, there is NOT one single time when God used the name, “The Rapture” in the Bible!

ADDING TO, OR DIMINISHING FROM GOD’S WORD

.

So how does one justify this non-biblical name, “The Rapture”? Well, in 1st Thessalonians, there is a passage which speaks about “The Coming of the Lord” But Satan has led us to ignore this God-given name, “The Coming of the Lord”, and replace it with the totally fabricated name, “The Rapture”.

.

And this rejection of God’s name, “The Coming of the Lord”, is excused by claiming that the words, “caught up” are from the Greek word, “harpazo” (which is not even a proper name, but is a verb!) and have turned it into the proper noun, “The Rapture”!

.

This would not be nearly such a grievous sin, if it were not a rejection of the name that God has given the event! And so, many have diminished God’s Word, by rejecting the God-given name in that very same passage, “The Coming of the Lord” and have added to God’s Word the totally fabricated name, “The Rapture”. So we have committed two sins!

.

And so now, we are guilty of both “adding to” and “diminishing ought” from God’s Word! Two grievous sins!

.

And because most of us do not spend much time searching for biblical truth, and are not so concerned about these things, this great deception goes almost undetected.

.

And even when someone does object, they are quickly discredited by any possible means!

A MATTER OF LOSING MY SALVATION!

.

But God cares! Yes, the Bible even pronounces a curse on anyone who adds to, or takes away from, the prophecy of this book.

.

Listen… “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18, 19

.

Now, dear trembling child of God, do we really want to take the chance of being found guilty of “adding to”, or “taking away” from the Book of Revelation? Are we willing to have our name removed from the Lamb’s Book of Life, simply because we have fallen in love with this man-created name, “The Rapture? That’s right! It’s a totally man-contrived title! So why do we love this title more than God’s title for that event?

.

Yes, O Christian, we’ve been duped by demonic forces it appears, just as God foretold we would be… “As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” Isaiah 3:12.

GLORIOUS CROWN CONSTELLATION… 

.

& THE REVELATION 12 WOMAN

(Click here to read more!)

Let us meet our first host: The Glorious Crown of Revelation 12 Constellation!

.Corona Borealis Wikipedia Taken from software Perseus

This Glorious Crown Constellation looks like a wreath at first glance. It has 7 stars, plus another star in the middle. This Glorious Crown Constellation is commonly referred to as the Corona Borealis Constellation. This wreath reminds us of the victory wreath given to athletes who won races in the ancient cultures. This was spoken of by Paul as he compared those ancient races to the race that Christians must run…  “Know you all not, that they which run in a race run all, but one receives the prize? So run, that you all may obtain.” 1st Corinthians 9:24 (see also Hebrews 12:1)

“A CROWN OF 12 STARS UPON HER HEAD” …

 

.

But upon a closer examination if you have access to a very dark sky out in the country; if you watch this wreath, you will eventually see 5 more very faint stars, making a total of 12 stars, plus that single star in the middle. This wreath now becomes a crown of 12 stars. This goes along with Revelation 12, which tells of a crown of 12 stars upon the head of the Virtuous Woman of Revelation 12.

.

Just listen to Revelation… “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” Rev. 12:1.

.

But this crown is not yet upon the head of the Virtuous Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (also known as Ursa Major). It is just above her head, as if she has yet to attain it. Of course, the 13th star in the middle would represent Christ (Who is our true Crown of our rejoicing). Ok, so we have a picture of Christ and His twelve tribes of Israel. But also we have a picture of Christ and His twelve apostles, which is a picture of His Church. So this heavenly crown is a multi-faceted concept.
