Day of Decision

Recently in my writings, I dealt with the Rapture of the Church which we discovered according to the Scripture took place somewhere in the middle of the Tribulation or soon after but before the end. To expound a little more on this subject, according to the Apostle Paul’s statement who wrote about it in First Corinthians 15:56, Paul states; “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” Paul says “at the last trump”, which is referring to the seven trumpets of the Revelation of Christ penned down by the Apostle John. If you will, in your study of the Bible, notice where the seven trumpets are and the events that are taking place at the time. You will see that the church is in the middle, between the Beast of Revelation and the nation of Israel. The Rapture actually takes place in the scene of the two Witnesses’ that God sends to proclaim His coming judgment. God is merciful to send one last warning to repent.
“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 11:15

“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” Revelation 10:7

After the seventh Angel sounds his trumpet the true church is no longer on earth but in the presence of our Saviour. We who are born-again by the Spirit of God will be in His presence at the Bema Seat of rewards. Yes, we who are born-again will see and experience a lot of things that are acquainted with all out warfare. The hard truth of the matter is that the religious Babylonian church and her many denominations will continue on just as nothing has happened. The Babylonian church will open its doors on Sunday morning and it will be business as usual just like any other corporation that will still continue to be in business. Their buildings are very easy to spot and identify because they have steeples on top of their roofs. The steeples are symbolic of the obelisks of ancient Egypt that marked the path to the pagan temple of idol worship. There is a famous obelisk from Egypt on display in the middle of St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. The Vatican employed the obelisks at all their locations and the little harlot denominations are following Mama Catholic church by allowing the obelisks {steeples} to be placed on their establishments as well thus identifying them with the religious Babylonian system of false religion. The Babylonian church is comprised of the church denominations that follow the Vatican in religion and politics. The day of God’s wrath is coming at this abomination as the Scripture informs us. Today the wheat of God’s Kingdom is mixed in with the Babylonian tares of false religion. There has to be a day of harvest to clean up this infiltration of corruption and deceit of the wicked unbelievers of religious Babylon.

“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth {the Vatican}. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he, cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast {the Son of Perdition, II Thessalonians 2:3}. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, “The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire for God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:1-18

I feel it is the intensions of the LORD for His people to make hard decisions either for or against Him to ensure their loyalty of the Kingdom of God. Let it be known now that the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Babylon are distinctly two different entities. To be able to differentiate between the two, the born-again Christian’s are the children of Jehovah God and of the Kingdom of God. The usurpers, frauds, go along with religious crowd, and fence straddle’s, are the members of the religious and pious church of Babylon. How can you tell these two apart? It is very hard today but if you know what to look for they can be identified. The rapture of the true church will be the deciding factor when it comes down to exposing just who is who. God’s way is very decisive but simple. The question is just how far would one go to prove their loyalty to their king? Would you be willing to lay down your life for the Kingdom of God? This will be seen and witnessed in that day.  This will be the day of decision as spoken of by the prophets. I also feel this will be another way to weed out those who claim to be born-again but are running a ruse in the presence of God and the church.

“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. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4-6

This passage of Scripture reveals our destiny provided you know Christ as your personal Saviour. Earlier on in other writings, I lightly touched on the Second Coming of Christ or the Second Advent of Christ. In the Christian camps that I am affiliated with it is widely believed that Christ will come and the Rapture, a type of rescue from affliction, will transpire just as the cavalry comes in and rescues the damsel in distress. As we will see, this is anything but the truth of the matter.
