Hello brothers and sisters! I am back with my second video for the week. I felt that there was a need for this message because I’ve been seeing quite a few more people now believing that we are in the Tribulation and that there is no such thing as a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Many believe we’re past the point of being Raptured Pre-Trib. They’ve settled into this mentality that we’re going to be here to endure the Tribulation and the coming persecution.
To me, this means they’ve lost hope and faith that Jesus desires to protect His Bride and take her into His refuge before Satan begins his attack.
I want to assure you, WE ARE NOT IN THE TRIBULATION and JESUS IS COMING.
We have seen part of the fulfillment of Revelation 12. We got to experience the sign of Revelation 12 in the Sun, Moon, and Stars on September the 23rd, 2017.
In November of 2019, a certain illness was unleashed upon the globe which caused a pandemic. This was the opening of the 4th Seal of Revelation which caused the famine and the opening of the 3rd Seal of Revelation and brought forth the snake venom which the Holy Spirit revealed is the Mark of the Beast, fulfilling Revelation 13:15-18. And some say that the 1st Seal was opened when this pandemic started. They say the crown on the white horse rider’s head is a Corona and that his bow is a toxin. This can actually be verified in the Strong’s Concordance. But does this mean we are in the Tribulation?
Because of the pandemic, many have died. This seems to fulfill the 4th Seal also as the scripture says…
When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
In the original wording, ‘pale’ was actually chloros which means ‘green’. So the pale horse of Revelation 6:7-8 is actually a green horse which symbolizes illness. Because of the illness, there is death, famine, and war. Famine and War were already covered in the 2nd and 3rd Seals, but it seems to be reiterated here in the 4th Seal.
Right now, there is talk of war between China, Russia, and America. Nothing has transpired yet, but anything could happen at any given time.
Many years ago, the Holy Spirit led me to understand that the Seals of Revelation are not Tribulation judgments, but pre-cursors. They set the stage for what will follow. And what keeps coming back to me is that 1) many have been shown in dreams or visions that when the bombs come down, the Bride goes up and 2) the Ezekiel 38 War has not taken place yet.
The 2nd Seal of Revelation is the rider on the red horse which symbolizes war. This war will be the War of Ezekiel 38.
When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer and all its troops; the house of Togarmah from the far north and all its troops—many people are with you.
Rosh in this context is Russia. Persia is Iran, Ethiopia and Libya are in northern Africa, and Gomer and Togarmah are Turkey. So this alliance in Ezekiel 38 consists of Russia, Iran, Ethiopia, Libya, and Turkey; not Ukraine or Syria. What is happening in the Ukraine and in Syria has nothing to do with the Ezekiel 38 War.
“Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely. You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you.”
So this alliance is going to come against Israel.
‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’— to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?’ ” ’
Sheba and Dedan are Saudi Arabia. Tarshish is Spain. The young lions are the nations of the UK; Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, The United States, Canada, and Mexico. These nations will sit idly by while Russia and their alliance comes against Israel. They know the plan but they’re not going to do anything to help.
“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it? Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army. You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” Thus says the Lord God: “Are you he of whom I have spoken in former days by My servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied for years in those days that I would bring you against them?
Many of us have been told by God that America will be attacked from the north. So this alliance will not just go after Israel, but America also. This is not a surprise really, considering Russia and Iran are against America. Iran has called America ‘The Big Satan’ and Israel, ‘The Little Satan’ for many years. In reality, it is not about attacking America and Israel, it is about attacking and exterminating Christians and Jews.
“And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord God, “that My fury will show in My face. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.” ’
At the time when God comes against those nations that have aligned against Israel, there will be a great earthquake in Israel, the mountains, the steep places, and every wall shall fall to the ground, there will be flooding rain, hailstones, fire, and brimstone. The hailstones will be meteors and the fire and brimstone could either be a volcanic eruption or some kind of space debris. He also mentions pestilence and bloodshed.
This scenario has never happened in the history of mankind. So anyone who says this war has already taken place is dead wrong. They’re not paying attention to detail and they don’t know the Word.
Now for those who say this war will take place after the Tribulation begins or at the middle of the Tribulation, listen to what is said in Ezekiel 39:9-10.
“Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years. They will not take wood from the field nor cut down any from the forests, because they will make fires with the weapons; and they will plunder those who plundered them, and pillage those who pillaged them,” says the Lord God.
Did you hear that?! They will burn the weapons for 7 years! That is the entire length of the Tribulation. This cannot and will not happen after the Tribulation begins or at some point in the middle of the Tribulation because it would overlap with the Second Coming of Jesus and the beginning of Jesus’ Millennial Reign.
By the time Jesus returns to begin His Millennial Reign, everything will be destroyed and there will be very few people left on the earth. There will be no need to burn weapons. God could just bury them with a landslide or with lava from a volcano.
This is why I must say and believe we are not in the Tribulation, the Tribulation has not officially started yet. But when this War of Ezekiel 38 begins, Jesus will most assuredly come to take His Bride. The remnant will be hidden in His refuge until it is time to return with Him at the end of the Tribulation.
Another reason to believe that the Rapture must happen before the Tribulation begins is that Revelation 3:7-13 speaks to the faithful Church of Philadelphia, which is the remnant Bride, and verse 10 tells us, ‘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.’
The Hour of Trial is the Tribulation. The definition of the word ‘tribulation’ is ‘Great affliction, trial, or distress; suffering. An experience that tests one’s endurance, patience, or faith.’ So the very fact that Jesus tells us He will deliver us from the hour of trial is pretty clear that we are not going through the Tribulation period. The world will be tested, but we, the Bride of Christ, have already been tested and are going through our greatest test right now as we deny the Mark of the Beast and stand in Christ.
One more scripture I want to share that will add confirmation to the Rapture being Pre-Trib is Revelation 16:15-21.
“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”
And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.
Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And Babylon the Great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.
In verse 15, Jesus says He is coming as a thief. He mentions this in Matthew 24:42-44 when talking about the Rapture. Right after this, we see the Battle of Armageddon which is the Ezekiel 38 War. Then in verse 18 we see Him mention that great earthquake again; the same one we saw in Ezekiel 38. He says every island fled away and the mountains were not found (in verse 20) and going into verse 21, He talks about the hailstones falling just like in Ezekiel 38. This is also referenced in Revelation 6:12-17.
I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
Verse 14 says, ‘Every mountain and island was moved out of its place.’ And in this scripture, the hailstones are stars that are falling to the earth.
Ezekiel 38:18-23, Revelation 6:12-17, and Revelation 16:15-21 are intertwined. They are all describing the same thing. Ezekiel 39 tells us the war will take place before the seven years when they will be burning weapons and Revelation 16:15-21 tells us the thief will come and then the destruction.
When you look at all of these scriptures together, you can clearly see it is painting a picture of the Rapture happening and then the war and then God’s wrath falls upon the Earth.
Many believe the period of God’s wrath is only the last 3 ½ years of the Tribulation. But as I already explained, Ezekiel 38:18-23 tells us about God pouring out His wrath or judgment upon those who come against Israel. Then in Ezekiel 39:9-10, the weapons from the war are being burned for seven years. So if the wrath of God is poured out before the weapons are burned then how can the wrath of God be a period of only 3 ½ years? It says the weapons are burned for seven years.
But if it’s still hard for you to believe in the Rapture or if you think Jesus isn’t coming, why are there so many babies and children telling about their encounters with Jesus and why are they all saying, “Jesus is coming”?
Many adults have had these encounters too. But I think it’s easier to believe the children. Babies do not lie and they do not understand false doctrine. Babies tell what they see and hear and feel. They are not old enough to know or understand anything else.
A couple of years ago, the Holy Spirit told me that those who don’t believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture don’t believe the Word of God. And if they deny the Word of God, they deny Jesus because He is the Word of God (John 1:1-3). And if they deny Jesus, the Christ, they are anti-Christ.
Satan has confused many people and he has sent out many agents who are false Christians to lead the Body astray. It is his purpose to take away your hope and your faith in the Rapture and in Jesus. He is trying to confuse you with false doctrines and false timelines so that you believe his lies.
The Word of God is clear. The Tribulation will not begin until the Ezekiel 38 War and it will be at this time that the Lord comes to steal away His Bride. There are many parallels all through the Bible and the Holy Spirit has revealed this to the Watchmen.
I think you’re probably still left with the question, ‘What about the 5th Seal of Persecution’? Because the Seals of Revelation are pre-cursors to the Tribulation, there is the possibility that many Christians will be thrown into isolation camps and even be killed for our faith before we are delivered by the Lord. However, I trust in His refuge. If you are walking with Him daily, being obedient to His voice and to the Word, you are in His refuge and I do not believe He will allow the enemy to lay a hand on you. Remember what He says in Psalm 91.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
He promises to deliver us from the snares and the pestilence, you shall have no fear, a thousand will fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but these things will not come near you. We shall only see these things coming upon the wicked who do not put their trust in Christ. He promises to deliver us from the plans of the enemy.
Though Satan may be planning to take out the Bride of Christ before her wedding day, he cannot do what God will not allow him to. So do not fear. Trust in Christ and the words of the Holy Bible. God keeps His promises. He does not lie.
Yesterday, because I have been seeing all of these comments and messages from so-called ‘prophets’ and people of God saying there is no Pre-Trib Rapture and that we must go through the persecutions of death, I called upon the Lord in prayer and I asked Him to give me a confirmation if the Bride is going home before the Tribulation truly gets started. Then last night as I was preparing this message, Sister Kendall posted a video talking about the Rapture and defending it against the same comments and messages I’d been hearing or reading. I felt that this was my confirmation from the Lord and I praised Him for it.
Now, today, I have seen two more messages about the Lord coming for His Bride. The Pre-Tribulation Rapture is not a lie, it is not a joke, it is the plan of God to rescue the faithful believers of Christ before the Tribulation begins and God’s wrath falls upon the wicked. If you do not believe that this is true, you do not believe the Word of God and you are not putting your faith in Christ. I am sorry to sound so harsh, but that is the truth.
Instead of relying on what you see and what seems most logical to you, you need to go into prayer with Jesus and you need to be asking Him about this. Ask Him if He plans to rescue His Bride or if He plans to let her go through the Tribulation. Ask Him if the Tribulation has truly begun. Start asking questions! He desires to talk to you! We are not to rely on our own understanding. We are to rely on the revelations of the Holy Spirit. He gives us understanding and wisdom. Ask Him to give you understanding and wisdom.
Our eyes and our ears deceive us every day. That is why it is important to allow the Holy Spirit to lead you in all things. Especially now! The enemy seeks to deceive you just like he did with Eve. But if you turn to God for understanding and wisdom, allowing Him to reveal truth to you in all things, the enemy will have no power.
Ok. I’m going to get off my soapbox now and I pray that this message has given you a clearer view of the Rapture and I pray that this message has encouraged you to keep having faith, believing the Lord is coming. Do not get discouraged and lose faith. I promise you, Jesus is coming and if you are in His salvation, you will be caught up when He comes for His Bride. Maranatha. God bless you. Shalom.
