The Word of God is POWERFUL, and sharper than ANY two-edged sword. This sword is so powerful it can cut through the joints and marrow of a human being. At the time this was written, the two-edged sword was the most powerful weapon of the day; changing lives, situations, and preventing people from doing wrong. Just like the power of the Word of God that can cut through the thoughts and intents of the heart; changing lives, situations, and preventing people from doing wrong.
Too many Christians have preconceived ideas about the Tribulation Period that are simply not true, have no basis in Scripture, and will be THE cause of many to fall away from the faith – called the Great Apostasy.
The Bible is very clear that very few, and only a certain kind of people will survive the entire Tribulation Period without taking the “Mark of the Beast” or dying from any number of events (famine/starvation, world war, ruthless governments, being killed by neighbors/family members, natural disasters, epidemics…)
Jesus said, “He who endures to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 24:13
What about those who do NOT endure to the end? Will they be saved? Obviously NOT, or Jesus’s statement would be false.
What causes Believers to not endure? Hardships and the cares of the world (read the most important parable that Jesus ever taught, in Mark 4: 1-20, especially verse 13.) The Tribulation Period will be THE MOST DIFFICULT time in all of human history (Matthew 24: 21). Around 90% of the world’s population dies. There will be starvation, murder, war, heartache and suffering like no other time in human history. Many will succumb to the pressure and take the Mark in order to survive a little longer, purchase food instead of starving to death, purchase medicine so their loved ones don’t die, and on and on and on – you see the picture of just how difficult it will be, don’t you?
One of the 3 MAJOR “keys” to surviving the
Tribulation Period is being able to ENDURE.
NOTE THE SOLUTION: Those living in a safe haven, NOT having to suffer, face starvation, or be tempted to take the Mark, will CERTAINLY be in a MUCH BETTER POSITION to endure to the end, versus all those who have to go through the absolute worst conditions humanly possible throughout the entire Tribulation Period.
Paul, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, told the church at Thessalonica that they should not sorrow, as though they had no hope, but all who died in the Lord would be raised with those living Believers at the Lord’s return.
1 Thessalonians 4: 13-17
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain to the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
After receiving this letter, some were confused, and felt as though they had missed the 2nd Coming. This information got back to Paul, and he wrote the church a second letter, explaining in detail that certain things HAD to happen FIRST, BEFORE the Lord would come back.
2 Thessalonians 2: 1- 12
1 Now we beseech you, brothers, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together to him, 2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now you know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all delusion of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
It is totally clear that Jesus’ return for His saints will not happen until the great apostasy (the falling away – from the Greek word apostasia – where we get the word apostasy) AND the Antichrist, or man of sin, appears. These two things have NOT yet FULLY happened (but are upon us.)
What we desperately NEED to point out is this reality, that anyone (“Christians” included) who does not have a love for the TRUTH, will be sent a strong delusion (from God Himself), that they will believe, which will condemn them to hell (read verses 10 through 12.) Why? Because you MUST have a love for the truth in order to please God and not be deceived in the tribulation period.
One of the 3 MAJOR “keys” to surviving the
Tribulation Period is being a TRUTH SEEKER.
NOTE THE SOLUTION: Those who have a love for the truth will obey God. Jesus said “if you love me you obey Me.” (John 14: 15, 21) God tells His children to leave the USA. (Revelation 18: 4) If they don’t, they get sucked into the sins, then die in the judgment/plagues. (Revelation 18: 4-8) Truth seekers receive from the Lord: direction, guidance, and wisdom. (Proverbs 7:1,2; Proverbs 3:5,6; Proverbs 2:1-9)
Those who receive the truth about surviving the Tribulation Period will be living in a safe haven, being a witness to those who were not serious about seeking truth and understanding the reality of the day and age in which they were living.
We know from exegetically studying the Word of God that everyone who takes the Mark of the Beast will be put to death and eventually sent to hell to spend eternity (Revelation 14:9-11 and Revelation 19: 11-21) at the 2nd Coming. Also, all true believers who are alive will ascend to heaven to be with Jesus at the 2nd Coming (1 Thessalonians 4: 13-17, I Corinthians 15: 51, 52, Matthew 24: 31). Then who is left?
The only people who are left alive are all the people who did NOT take the Mark, did not die in the wars, of starvation, murders, ruthless governments, etc. There are two groups of these SURVIVORS. Jesus called them either the sheep or the goats in Matthew 25:31-46.
Matthew 25: 31-46
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
This is one of the most important Scriptures in regards to understanding what God thinks as well as what His conditions (read: rules) are to enter the Kingdom of God. It should also scare the ‘hell’ out of any Christian ‘prepper’ who is thinking he will survive IN the USA because he has a nice stockpile of food, water, and provisions. (Rev 17 & 18 says he will die.)
Let’s put this into perspective AGAIN. It is SO VERY IMPORTANT. When Jesus returns, the Bible says all true believers that are alive will be caught up into the air and forever be with the Lord (1 Thes 4: 16, 17, and 1 Cor 15: 50-55, and Mat 24:31, John 14: 1-4…). All those who took the Mark of the Beast (the Luciferian globalist’s bio-metric ID system), will be put to death, no exceptions (Rev 14: 9-11, and Rev 19:21).
Who does this leave alive after the 2 nd Coming? Only two groups of people, the sheep and the goats. People who did NOT take the Mark, Number, or Name (Rev 13: 16, 17) and survived the entire tribulation period. They survived the Antichrist globalist system. The war. The famine and starvation. The natural disasters. The epidemics. They even survived from dying at the hands of the people who DID take the Mark, pledged allegiance to the global government, and ratted out non-compliant resistors of the ‘system’.
The sheep SHARED their provisions and are called “righteous” for doing so. The goats, did NOT share their provisions, and are sent to hell.
Without the “Mark”, you cannot buy or sell. This includes food, water, clothing, housing. The people who are living in safe havens have their own food, water, clothing, utilities, housing and are FREE from the system. Their safe haven is also not hook-line- and-sinker into the Luciferian globalist system. Or they are hidden in the mountains, safely tucked away out of sight from the masses. The sheep were wise and moved to the safe haven in the mountains long before the abomination of desolation; prepared, made sure they had extra, and was willing to share with others during the most difficult time in human history.
Most US preppers are armed to the ‘teeth’ with guns and ammunition. Why? To ‘protect’ THEIR STUFF. From whom? The thousands of marauding gangs of starving people. Why? To kill them. These preppers will become murderers before they themselves watch their wives and children raped and slaughtered in front of their very eyes, then they too will die. All their time, energy, and efforts will be for naught. They will NOT be able to escape the vicious attack of millions of starving, desperate people.
So even if they are “Christians”, where does this place them in the eyes of God, who condemns not sharing your ‘stuff’ with others, let alone murdering them? Something to seriously think about.
And yes, because of the volume of people who email and ask questions, we hear all the time people defending murder, saying: “Surely God will not mind us killing these people. They did NOT prepare, so it is THEIR fault that they are starving. They were going to come and take ‘our stuff’. We prepared and should be allowed to keep OUR STUFF.” Where does that mindset fit in with Matthew 25: 31-46??? Simply, it does NOT.
And HOW do you know for sure that someone coming up the road, or your driveway is not someone coming to share food or clothes or provisions with you? How do you KNOW what their intentions are? How do you know what is in their hearts?
One of the 3 MAJOR “keys” to surviving the
Tribulation Period is being a SHEEP.
NOTE THE SOLUTION: How do you become a sheep? Moving to a Safe Haven where there will be plenty of food, and provisions, and places that are not sucked into the globalist system, and with friendly, kind, sharing and compassionate neighbors… so you will be able to share your provisions with others, with no need to kill or harm others!
The ANSWER to enduring to the end? The ANSWER to being a truth seeker? The ANSWER to being a sheep?
Living in a safe haven. Fleeing BEFORE the Abomination of Desolation to a safe place (haven). NOT after, when it will be too late.
What ARE the 3 KEYS to surviving The Tribulation Period, the Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast, World War 3, the Luciferian Global Government?
Be a truth seeker, a sheep, and endure til the end.
Nearly the only way to do that is to live in a safe haven.
Finally, we listen and learn from the final words of Jesus.
Jesus had John the Beloved write seven letters to the seven churches in Revelation 2 & 3.
Hear what He said about those who overcame the tribulation, the Antichrist, and the evilness of the day:
To the church at Ephesus (Revelation 2:7)
“To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”
To the church at Smyrna (Revelation 2:11)
“He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”
To the church at Pergamos (Revelation 2:17)
“To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a ,white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”
To the church at Thyatira (Revelation 2:26)
“And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations – He shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces – as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star.”
To the church at Sardis (Revelation 3:5)
“He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.”
To the church at Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7)
“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.”
To the church at Laodicea (Revelation 3:21)
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
Verily, let it be so.
