The Great Tribulation

Updated: Aug 23, June 10, 2015

Alas! For that day is great, for none is like it. And it is a time of Jacob's trouble, but he will be saved out of it.
(Jer 30:7 HRB)

Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: ...
(Gen 32:7 RNKJV)

While we are bombarded with messages of wars, financial and economic collapse, nuclear bombing, the unveiling of the fascist communist government aka the "New World Order", information and misinformation campaign by the powers-that-be in all media to numb the senses of the general populace; my thoughts has led me to read on the account of Jacob's Trouble.

Yahushua told us also to "watch out and do not be disturbed, for it is necessary that these things must happen, but it is not yet the end".

For you are bound to hear of revolutions and rumor of wars. Watch out and do not be disturbed, for it is necessary that all these things happen, but it is not yet the end.
(Mat 24:6 HRB)

But when you hear of wars and rumors of revolutions, do not be disturbed, for it must occur; but the end is not yet.
(Mark 13:7 HRB)

I have been asking myself, what is the "great tribulation"? And "Jacob's Trouble" came into mind.

I search the Internet for "great tribulation" and I get several discourses but mostly it is about the "seven year tribulation", the "rapture" and the last half of it is the "great tribulation".

I search e-Sword for the phrase "great tribulation" (KJV) and it yields three verses only. All in the New Testament. (Mat 24:21, Rev 2:22, 7:14)

“For then there shall be great distress,1 such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. Footnote:1Or great pressure, or great affliction.
(Mat 24:21 The Scriptures 1998+)

“See, I am throwing her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their works.
(Rev 2:22 The Scriptures 1998+)

And I said to him, “Master, you know.” And he said to me, “These are those coming out of the great distress, having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
(Rev 7:14 The Scriptures 1998+)

Jocob's Trouble

I then search e-Sword for "Jacob's Trouble" and it yields only one verse, that is Jeremiah 30:7. It does not give me much to chew on. So I read the whole chapter, and verse 3 says that this is a future event. But this future event may very well be already speaking of our day.

And this is about Israel (the lost tribes, and those who believed on Yahushua HaMashiack) and Judah (Judah and Benjamen which the state of Israel represents today). Might this be speaking of the coming together of both houses towards the "new Jerusalem"?

Please note. The majority of the Jews living in Israel today may not be the real Hebrew Jews at all. If there are, maybe few and not be recognizable. Even then, Father has allowed it to happen for good to all that believed on Him.

And please note: by "new Jerusalem" I mean the "new Jerusalem" coming down from heaven. Which also means, that if there be a coming together of both houses; might it mean the final exodus? And might it mean, the Jerusalem we know today be totally destroyed?

It remains to be see. But fasten your seat belts, it is going to be rough ride ahead.

Further, in verses 10 and 11 reveals that this "Jacob's Trouble" is a judgement of Yahuah to both houses, the house of Judah -- the Jews in the present day, of the tribe of Benjamin and Judah, and the house of Israel -- the lost ten tribes, lost among all nations in the world. The tribe of Judah remains today, but the lost ten tribes may not be traceable.

‘And you, do not fear, O Yaʽaqoḇ My servant,’ declares יהוה, ‘nor be discouraged, O Yisra’ĕl. For look, I am saving you from afar, and your seed from the land of their captivity (both houses were scattered to all nations, except that there remains a few of the house of Judah to guard and protect and preserved the Torah). And Yaʽaqoḇ shall return, and have rest and be at ease, with no one to trouble him.
(Jer 30:10 The Scriptures 1998+)

‘For I am with you,’ declares יהוה, ‘to save you. Though I make a complete end of all gentiles1 (might this mean that all nations, worldwide, be troubled by Assyria aka ISIS in today's news?) where I have scattered you, yet I do not make a complete end of you (a few men left, Isa 24:6). But I shall reprove you in judgment, and by no means leave you unpunished. Footnote: 1 See Jer 46:28, Isa. 34:2, Isa. 45:17, Dan. 2:44, Amos 9:8, Hag. 2:22.
(Jer 30:11 The Scriptures 1998+)

I also search the word "rapture" in e-Sword and it yield no results. There are three "theories" (yes, "theories") about the "rapture". The "pre-tribulation rapture", the "middle tribulation rapture", and the "post-tribulation rapture".

There was a time this doctrine about the "rapture" was clearly false. But today, the terminology is now mixed with the "second coming" of Yahushua. Even that should be a clue to view it as the "second coming". And seek confirmation with the Scriptures.

So, what I did was examine the doctrine, personally, firsthand. And ask the Father for guidance.

Please note: the "rapture" is a doctrine that the "church" would be "raptured" either, "before", in the "middle", or after the "great tribulation". And one might wonder which church this is. Because the "rapture" doctrine was introduced by the agents of the powers-that-be, and the word "church" was also introduced by the agents of the powers-that-be. Coincidence?

Before The Great Exodus

And reading Jacob's Trouble gives me also a clue of what this "Great Tribulation" shall be for all believers -- both houses of Yisrael. To unbelievers, it is an entirely different thing.

The narrative of the Jacob's Trouble was the beginning of my Torah reading this morning 2 Dec 2013. It can be found in Genesis 32:1 - 33:20.

The narrative started with Jacob sending his messengers to the land of Esau, when they came back and told Jacob that his brother Esau is also coming to meet him with four hundred men. Verse 7 says: "And Yaʽaqoḇ was greatly afraid and distressed." ...

Might this mean both houses will have felt the same thing? Might this be the condition we are to look forward to or expect in the future?

The land of Esau spoken here is also Jacob's land, which today we call Israel. At those times, it was larger compared to today's Israel.

Please note: Jacob is now going back to his promised land with his family and positions and wealth that he had accumulated. Might perhaps part of his trouble was the fear of lose of his positions -- his wealth, and his most treasured positions -- his family?

Please also note, that today's Jews, the majority that is, who are in Israel, are descendants of Esau or Edom or Edomites. Are we seeing a parallel here?

If the Scriptures refer to the "Great Tribulation" as "Jacob's Trouble", then this is where we can also gather some clues.

I hope that make sense.

There are a number of places we can gather clues, and thoughts filled my mind with the "Jacob's Trouble". So, there must be something here we can glean from.

The Way

The people of Yah, lost and found, are instructed to get back to the "Torah", Mal 4:4-6, which is the "Word of Yah", the same Word YHWH planted on the mouth of Yahushua Messiah, Deut 18:18,19.

Yahushua is a Nazarene, which means "a guardian, keeper, protector of the Torah". The Pharisees have persecuted the Nazarenes unjustly. Even turned Yahushua to the Romans to be crucified. And most records shows a totally different light about the nazarenes, and contrary to "a guardian, keeper and protector of the Torah".

There are more than 300 prophecies fulfilled by one man in the Scriptures -- the "Tanakh" or the "Old Testament Bible".

  • Please note: there is no City of Nazareth. Nazarenes are a sect of Pharisees who guards, keeps and protects the Torah. John the Baptizer, Yahushua HaMashiach, and the Apostle Paul were Nazarenes.

  • But the Gospel accounts we read in our Bibles are corrupted through Hellenization and Syncretism which began with the translations to Greek. And then the Hellenized, Syncretized doctrines were sealed at the Council of Nicaea in AD 325.

    Christianity is a Great Deception. And most Christian churches and denominations inherited its lies, in varying degrees, depending on which church one is talking to.

  • It is a challenge in discarding much of the Lies of Christianity because most have become dogmatically fused in one's mind. And remember, The Mark of the Beast" is not a literal mark, but rather, it "is what One Has Engrained in One's Own Mind".

Yahushua HaMashiach, is the Prophet for the Remnant Israel.

Elohim, having of old spoken in many portions and many ways to the fathers by the prophets,
(Heb 1:1 The Scriptures 1998+)

has in these last days spoken to us by the Son, (Yahushua HaMashiach, is the Prophet, Prophesied by Moses, Deut 18:18,19, that would come. He is the Last Prophet for the Remnant Israel -- both houses) whom He has appointed heir of all, through whom also He (YHWH) made the ages,1 (everything that was created, was created through, for and because of the promised seed, The Anointed One of YHWH, this promised seed of Adam was anointed before he ever existed as a man, before He was born, this Anointed One already existed in the mind of YHWH -- His Plan of Salvation or Redemption, Before the Foundation of the world -- existed in the mind of YHWH -- His Plan of Redemption.)
Footnote: 1: John 1:3.
(Heb 1:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

The "Torah" is the "Way" to the "Promised Land".

Please note: Going back to the "Torah" is simple but Not Easy. Because we have been hold bondage with religion. The Scriptures teaches how to be a citizen of the Kingdom of YHWH, by following His Torah. And Yahushua is The Way -- Our Example, Let us follow Him.

But YHWH does not forced His Torah to every one. Instead, everyone's name was written in The Book of Life, Before the foundation of the world, and through the Torah, one is judged. And if found unrighteous -- disobedient, one's name will be blotted out from The Book of Life. Righteousness is following the Torah.

Yahushua is our example. He is a Nazarene, He obeyed the Torah, He lived by it. He protected the Torah. He guarded, kept, and protected the Torah.

יהושע said to him, “I am the Way (follow His example), and the Truth (He lived by the Torah, preached and taught it), and the Life (believe that He is the root of David, Rev 5:5, 22:16, traced to Adam son of Elohim, He is 100% human, 1Jn 5:6-10, see: The Spirit of Prophecy He is not YHWH who became a man, that is a doctrine of incarnation, emanation, virgin birth, original sin and trinity inserted in the Gospels). No one comes to the Father except through Me (by following His example, for He is a man, 100% human, we have no excuse, however, the decrees of the Torah have been covered by grace because of His blood for all who believe and obey; but if we nail the Torah to the cross of Jesus Christ, so will grace be removed to cover us, let us not be fooled).
(Joh 14:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

Bondage

Religion is enslavement. Churches, denominations, or religions are agencies of bondage. Which is also referred to in the Scriptures as "Egypt" metaphorically.

The Greek word "ekklesia" means "congregation" or "assembly" and literally it means "called out". Came out of bondage. Came out of "religions", out of "Egypt". Like soldiers in an assembly.

Wait a minute, that sounds familiar, doesn't it? Ah! It is in Revelation 18:4:

And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.1 Footnote: 1 Jer. 51:6, 45.
(Rev 18:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please note: If you believe your "church", "denomination" or "religion" is "called out" but is under the registry of the agency of the powers-that-be (the government securities), and have a "pyramid hierarchical structure"; your church is not really "called out".

It is not a "congregation" or "assembly" of Yahushua, rather a pyramid hierarchical structure, which controls or enslaved the people below, or what the Revelations call "Nicolaitans Rev 2:6,16". That is why it is called "church", a departure from the "Old Testament congregation or assembly". It seems connected to Yahushua, but by close examination it is not. It is connected to the pyramid -- the "Image" of the "beast".

G3531 Νικολαΐ́της Nikolaitēs Thayer Definition:

Nicolaitans = “destruction of people”

1) a sect mentioned in Rev_2:6,Rev_2:15,

A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from G3532

G3532 Νικόλαος Nikolaos Thayer Definition:

Nicolas = “victor of the people".

Please note, the "strikedthrouh" means, this "beast" power is concealed and it is ruling the world today in secrecy, or concealed identity.

But of course, there are congregations of Yahushua inside these churches. Some are perhaps innocent, and some just wanted to hang in there because of the fellowship or something else.

Meaning the whole world is not aware, it is ruled by one power, it is already in a "New World Order", in other words, the whole world is deceived.

If you come to this realization, then you would know what it means to "come out of her" when you, yourself is already out of "her".

For then, you shall begin to see things in a new light, and shall see things of her, that you would not see when you are still with her.

But the powers-that-be, the agents of the devil, have change the translation of the word "ekklesia" from "congregation" or "assembly" to the word "church", so that it would be easy for them to gain control and divide the "congregation".

There are many more words that are mistranslated in our Bibles for a purpose by the powers-that-be.

Please see:

By their agents, infiltrating in all registered and known religions today, to refute each others teaching, yet claiming each one claims to be true. Relative Truth. Please see: What Is True To You Is True To You.

Instead of coming together as a "congregation" and in searching the scriptures helping one another come to understanding and growing together as one instead of a divided body, like as we see in our day, different churches and denominations and religions.

When one gets back to the "Torah", one begins one's walk, one's journey with Yah towards His promised land. Which is the Hope of the coming new heaven and the new earth, and with it the "New Jerusalem" that will come down from heaven, and the millenium, the "sabbath rest" of Yah, begins. (Rev 3:12, 21:2)

Please see:

The Nicolaitans

Please note: Going back to the "Torah" is not about having a religion. It is about citizenship of the coming Kingdom of Yah. No one is forced here. Everyone must exercise their Yah-given freedom of choice.

But the enemy of mankind, the devil, the forces of the darkness of this world, those who worship the devil in occult, and pagan practices, the powers-that-be, who rule the world (in secrecy) today, does not want you and I to have freedom of choice.

But have us believing we have freedom of choice. By giving us many options (different kinds of teachings, churches, religions, denominations, competing each other for our tithes, offerings and donations) to choose, and all these basically is setup to control the masses, which also contains deceptions that lead us away from the truth.

They want any of us to believe that this coming Kingdom of Yah is a fiction, and the "Torah", the "Scriptures", the "Bible" is fiction.

They want us to be in a "religion" -- "bondage" -- whether it is Islam, Judaism, Christianity or Messianic, and the like. They want us to be controlled by "dogmas". Rather than by the truths of the "Torah".

If one be a Christian or Messianic, or whatever; They want one to be a Christian (Christianity is a Great Deception), or "false" Messianic. A believer of "dogmas" that would gripped one into bondage -- narrow mindedness, unable to consider contending information outside one's own belief, this is known as dogma.

A Christian who follow their instituted "holidays", instituted "feast days", instituted "Lord's days" and instituted "Sabbaths". Instituted by "law".

As Sunday was Instituted as "law" in 321 AD and then in 325 AD, the "new marker" of the beginning of the week, replacing the marker of the beginning of the month, and the pointer to a new week, which is the "new moon".

Dictated by Sunday as the "first day" of the week "marker" rather than the Biblical "New Moon" as the marker for the "new month" and a pointer to the Biblical "weeks". (This is an entirely different subject one must research on.)

Then, They also, planted an anti-religion sentiment to point out how futile, how damaging religion can be. This is their way of measuring the condition of the crowd or the masses. The Powers-That-Be are masters of Crowd Control.

If you do not like. You can be an Atheist, an Agnostic, a Muslim, a Hindu, a Buddhist, a Shintoist, a Feminist, Gay, Communist, Fascist, and the list can go on. As long as you are NOT following the True Way of the Torah. You are good.

They work through deception, to steal our freedom, stealthily, surreptitiously. And many are deceived.

At The Great Exodus

And Genesis 32:8 reveals the rational of Jacob's reaction to the news he heard from his messengers. This is also a type of us worrying that something dire might happen to us, because of the news we hear from within our family or within our circle. We then react.

and he said, “If Ěsaw comes to the one group and attacks it, then the other group which is left shall escape.”
(Gen 32:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

In the next verses, 9 to 13: Jacob separated himself from the group and prayed to Yah, asking to deliver him from the hands of Esau his brother. And he recalled the promises of Yah to him and his father. And he spent the night there.

He then sent everyone to go forward passing him. And when he was alone, a man wrestled with him. (Gen 32:24,25)

And Yaʽaqoḇ was left alone. And a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day.
(Gen 32:24 The Scriptures 1998+)

And when He saw that He did not overcome him, He touched the socket of his hip. And the socket of Yaʽaqoḇ’s hip was dislocated as He wrestled with him.
(Gen 32:25 The Scriptures 1998+)

And at some point, he recognize he was wrestling with Elohim, for in verse 26 he is asking for blessing. This is the culmination of "Jacob's Trouble", his realization that he was being judged and reproved by Yahuah.

So also in our struggles in our journey with Yah. We will also come to a realization that we are wrestling with Yah's judgements and reprovation. And like Jacob we can ask to be blessed as well.

And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I am not letting You go until You have blessed me!”
(Gen 32:26 The Scriptures 1998+)

In that day Egypt shall be like women; and it will tremble and dread from before the shaking of the hand of Yah of Hosts, which He shakes over it.
(Isa 19:16 HRB)

Our struggles in following The Way are but shadows of the bigger struggle that is yet coming in the "Great Tribulation". Our struggles now may just be the beginning process of purification, as gold is purified, and the "Great Tribulation" would be the final purification process that would end with a great reward.

Please note: Mitsrayim (Egypt) here, also, is a type of the whole world we live in our day. The whole world is our Egypt, and there will soon be another exodus. And this world shall be shaken to judge the righteous -- The "Great Tribulation".

The Great Tribulation is also known as (aka) The Four Winds Of Revelation aka The Wrath of Elohim aka The 7 Last Plagues. Please see: The Four Winds Of Revelation.

Judgments With Mercy

Judgments with mercy, comes first. Revelation speaks of "a third, a third, a third", (Rev 8:8,10,12, 9:15); because these judgments are still mixed with mercy.

Meaning, there is still a chance to seek Yahuah, and He can still be found. And one can repent, and obey and be counted in the coming Kingdom of Yahuah.

Might the third here who dies in these judgments have no more chance? While there is life, there is chance, once one is dead, ones fate depends on what was recorded about his life.

Did not the Scriptures also speak of "a third" of the "angels" in heaven have fallen? (Rev 12:4)

And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
(Rev 12:4 RNKJV)

Might these judgments alludes, that "a third" means "the third" of the peoples that are now clearly hardened in their hearts? (2Th 2:11) Peoples that have cling to the false teachings that they would even fight to the death to defend it?

Even then, the peoples shall tremble in fear. Please do not wait until these things get really ugly. Seek Yah now while He can still be found.

And have these judgments began, already?

Judgments Without Mercy

After which, the wicked shall be judged -- and the final 7th plague will come.

And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
(Rev 16:17 WoY)

And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
(Rev 16:18 WoY)

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before Elohim, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
(Rev 16:19 WoY)

And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
(Rev 16:20 WoY)

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed Elohim because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
(Rev 16:21 WoY)

The Shaking

For thus it is to be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, like the shaking of an olive tree, like the gleaning of grapes when the grape harvest is done.
(Isa 24:13 The Scriptures 1998+)

But as Jeremiah had prophesied, "he [Jacob] would be saved out of it".

Meaning, what we worry that we will perish, (just like Jacob did) because of the news we hear delivered to us from within our circles. And because of the destruction we shall see happening about us, that are so close to us. That even the mightiest of men should be shaken in fear.

Might these news be about our sins, some hidden, some darling sins, some addiction? And piercing deep in our hearts accusing us, and claiming us that we are already condemned? That there is no longer any hope that we can be redeemed?

We would be shaken, and if it has not started yet, it will be, when one begins in earnest, to walk in the Way, the "Torah", the "Word of Yah", that also became flesh. Who said, "I am the Way".... The "Living, Talking, Walking Torah".

Yahushua saith unto him, I am the way (follow His example), the truth (He lived by the Torah, the Torah is Truth, Psa 119:142,151, John 17:17), and the life (He is the First Man ever Resurrected from the Dead, whoever believes that YHWH is able to resurrect Yahushua, for he is a 100% human being just like you and I, and that He is the Anointed One of YHWH even before He was born, even before the foundation of the world, will have eternal life, John 17:3): no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (Please see: The Spirit Of Prophecy).
(John 14:6 RNKJV)

Who also said: "Guard my commands". And His "commands" are not His, but the Father, which was already written in the "Torah" of Moses. Which means, to walk with Yah, is to "Guard the commands" that Yahushua instructed, which can be read in the "Torah", and the Scriptures and the Bible.

“If you love Me, you shall guard My commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, John 14:21,23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John 1:6.
(John 14:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

“He who does not love Me does not guard My Words. And the Word which you hear is not Mine but of the Father Who sent Me.
(John 14:24 The Scriptures 1998+)

Our faith on the power of the Blood of the Lamb of Yah will be tried and tested. And we would feel as Jacob felt. We would feel as Yahushua felt in the garden of Gethsemane as He prayed:

And going forward a little, He fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Yet not as I desire, but as You desire.
(Mat 26:39 The Scriptures 1998+)

And in the stake when He felt the Father has left Him because of the sin of the world that He carried.

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
(Mat 27:45 RNKJV)

And about the ninth hour Yahushua cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My Elohim, my Elohim, why hast thou forsaken me?
(Mat 27:46 RNKJV)

But if, like Jacob as he struggled with Elohim, and like Yahushua when He felt the Father has left Him. So also we would struggle with Elohim when the judgments -- His reprovation -- fall -- the "Great Tribulation", until the breaking of the dawn.

And then, those who endure to the end shall be blessed.

“But he who shall have endured to the end shall be saved.1 Footnote:1See Mat 10:22.
(Mat 24:13 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And you shall be hated by all for My Name’s sake. But he who shall have endured to the end shall be saved.1 Footnote: 1See Mat 24:13.
(Mat 10:22 The Scriptures 1998+)

But those who struggle with Elohim will be saved out of it according to Jeremiah 30:7.

This should make one wonder where "the rapture" would fit in. Because according to these passages we just covered, Yah's people shall be shaken, and this clearly speaks of the "Great Tribulation". But "he shall be saved out of it" means those who endure to the end, shall be saved, "not raptured".

Please note: although this is Yahuwah's judgements and reprovation, on Jacob, He used Esau to inflict fear and distress on Jacob. And He used Jacob's messengers to deliver the message. Likewise He would use or rather allow the adversary to inflict fear and distress on His people through the news brought forth also by friendly people in the circle.

And in this end times, the judgements will come to all nations in the world where Yah's people are. To shake the land, to purify the land.

Those who recognize the judgments of Yah will seek His Face and shall find Him, and they shall be led to the truths. If they repent, and turn away from their wicked ways, Yahuwah will bless them and bring them to the fold.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
(2Ch 7:14 RNKJV)

Elohim's judgements comes first to His people, but He allows only so much that His people can handle, and then the judgements to the wicked, follows.

Wading Through Information

The seven churches, the seven seals, and the seven trumpets are prophecies in parallel.

There are two general interpretations of the book of Revelation. One is literal and futurist and the other is symbolic and historicist. I basically consider both of these. However, most of the studies that can readily be found today in the Internet, considers only one, that is the literal and futurist.

There is a danger of considering only one of these, and specially with the literal interpretation, because one can get really excited, and then that excitement wanes, and one is in danger of falling into apathy. And then close one's mind for the other important matters that is being taught.

This is what the devil and his agents the powers-that-be wants us to be. In apathy towards the prophecies and the truths.

Remember this, the powers-that-be has put "blinders" or "winkers" or "blinkers", whatever one wants to call it, in every religion, church or denomination. I call this "dogmas".

And like a horse with "blinders", it cannot see the sides of the road, it cannot see what is above, and it cannot see what is behind either, only the road in front of it, that it is led to.

And this road either leads to a totally false doctrine, or to fiction (truths mix with untruths) in different levels, depending on a religion, church or denomination one is in.

And I likened these religions, churches and denominations as stepping stones, or stairs towards advancing truths. I also likened these as different levels of classrooms.

If one becomes "dogmatic", one will not be able to see these like this, because of the "dogma" and one of this common "dogmas" are: "we are the true church", "we are the remnant church" and the like.

This is why, the call to "come out of her" is literal and also symbolical. When one finds some of these untruths in the mix of what one's church or religion teaches, then that call becomes obviously "literal".

“Come out1 of her midst, My people! And let everyone deliver his being from the burning displeasure of יהוה. Footnote: 1 Rev. 18:4.
(Jer 51:45 The Scriptures 1998+)

And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.1 Footnote: 1 Jer. 51:6 & 45.
(Rev 18:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

Then one must search out the truths. In one's walk, or journey, however, one would find oneself in anyone of these other religions as well that have more of the truths. And remember, Yahushua is in control, and He permits these to happen, because His people has fallen away.

But as one comes out, one is removing "blinkers" one by one. For all religions today have been infiltrated by the powers-that-be with their false teachings.

I consider the historicist interpretation, but I also believe, that some of the events that happened already are going to repeat itself in the future as well. Some, not all. And they may not happen exactly the same. But I am not dogmatic about it, for it may or may not happen. But of course we would know after the fact.

So, in this regard, I have already violated some of the scholars' teachings on the principles of interpretation of prophecies. See? Some of these scholars are "dogmatic" about what they teach. And they passed their "dogmas" to the churches and denominations.

Consider this a warning, if one teaches you to violate the advise to "prove all things, hold on to what is good", then most likely the teacher is already deceived by the powers-that-be, if not, is one of the agents of the powers-that-be.

Example: They will tell us to not search the Internet, and Youtube for answers, because there is so much crap in it. True. But the Internet, and Youtube is a natural tool.

And why would they tell us so?

Because, they are afraid, we would find the truths.

One is in danger, only, if one do not know how to investigate.

Please see:

Beware of such teachers!

Note, that we are advised to "prove all things, hold on to what is good", to "search the Scriptures" like the Bereans did, and be like "the men of Issachar who knew" about the times -- current events and knowledge.

For in these last days, the last of the prophets we (the people of Yah) are given is Yahushua (Heb 1:1,2).

Elohim, having of old spoken in many portions and many ways to the fathers by the prophets,
(Heb 1:1 The Scriptures 1998+)

has in these last days spoken to us by the Son, whom He has appointed heir of all, through whom also He made the ages,1 Footnote: 1John 1:3.
(Heb 1:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

So, any "NEW Prophecies" that will come out is certainly not for Yah's people. For these "New Prophecies Could" be false.

By "New Prophecies" I mean, prophecies that are not already written in the Scriptures. For what will happen in the future are already written in the Scriptures.

And "New Prophecies" are "dreams" or "visions" that DO NOT agree with what is Already Written In The Scriptures.

An example is this:

I pleaded with the LORD to please give
 me a "sign", because I wanted to leave
 that Catholic Church in the worst way
 due to intense personal persecution.
 His reply to my cry: "NO!"
 Thus I am obedient to His will -

What did the Scripture say?

Come out1 of her midst, My people! And let everyone deliver his being from the burning displeasure of יהוה. Footnote: 1 Rev. 18:4.
(Jer 51:45 The Scriptures 1998+)

And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.1 Footnote: 1 Jer. 51:6 & 45.
(Rev 18:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

It says, to "come out of her", and this goes to all known and registered "churches", "denominations", and "religions" in the world today. For these are all registered Under the "Image" of the "beast".

Also the "Catholic church" worships "idols" and their priests practice "occult" and worship the "devil" behind closed doors.

What does the scripture say about "idols"?

but that we write to them to abstain from the defilements of idols, and from whoring, and from what is strangled, and from blood.1 Footnote: 1See Acts 15:29.
(Acts 15:20 The Scriptures 1998+)

that you abstain from what is offered to idols, and blood, and what is strangled, and whoring.1 If you keep yourselves from these, you shall do well. Be strong! Footnote: 1See Acts 15:20.
(Acts 15:29 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please note, Isa 8:20, "the Torah and the Testimony" is also known as the Scriptures, and also known as the "will" of Yah.

To the Torah and to the Testimony! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because there is no light to them!
(Isa 8:20 HRB)

If a dream or vision does not align with the Scriptures, then it is not from Yah. But it is from the devil.

In these last days, Yah will pour out His spirit to all, and many will prophesy, see visions, and dream dreams. (Joel 2:28, Acts 2:17)

“And after this it shall be that I pour out My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men dream dreams, your young men see visions.
(Joel 2:28 The Scriptures 1998+)

‘And it shall be in the last days, says Elohim, that I shall pour out of My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams,
(Acts 2:17 The Scriptures 1998+)

The word "prophesy" here, means to preach or to teach, or to proclaim the message. And these visions and dreams May or May Not align with what is already written in the Scriptures.

Perhaps a new meaning, or understanding, or indication of current events that are already written in the Scriptures but have not yet been fully understood.

And that prophecy also aligns with another prophecy of Yahushua:

“But beware of the false prophets,1 who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are savage wolves. Footnote: 1See Mat 7:23
(Mat 7:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And many false prophets shall rise up and lead many astray.
(Mat 24:11 The Scriptures 1998+)

“For false messiahs and false prophets shall arise, and they shall show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones.
(Mat 24:24 The Scriptures 1998+)

“For false messiahs and false prophets shall rise and show signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones.
(Mar 13:22 The Scriptures 1998+)

Then what does that tell us? That we should check with the Scriptures. If it is not in the Scriptures, then it is not coming from Yah but from other spirits, obviously the spirit that came out of the abyss.

Example:

Question: Is the apparition of Fatima and other "man-made" or "man-pronounced" saints written in the Scriptures?

Answer: No.

There are many more, but I trust this drives the point

The Woes In Revelation

I have considered that the "interpretations" of prophecies are not "doctrines" to be "dogmatic" about as most of these scholars would led us.

In this essay, I am considering the historicist interpretation. And I would also recommend to watch a literal interpretation in some videos, I will share shortly.

So in this essay the tribulation started after the time of John.

This was my previous understanding:

  • And the "Great Tribulation" would start with the first woe, or the sounding of the fifth trumpet of Revelation 9:1-11. And the assembly of Sardis describes the condition of the assembly when this began. And the fifth seal corresponds to Daniel's prophecies of the end times, that were sealed, and here are opened.

Now, I know that The Great Tribulation is the Last 7 Plagues, aka The Wrath of Elohim, aka The Four Winds Of Revelation.

There is a literal interpretation of this by WLC, please view them, to get a handle of the imagery, that John used here. But also consider these things in this essay, the historicist interpretation. So that you will get both perspective, and be able to weigh the information.

7 Trumpets of Revelation - Trailer - WLC - Youtube --
http://www.youtube.com/v/XYyzLwg-QG8

In this essay, we will consider the trumpets mainly, for the subject is huge, but I will recommend some videos one should view in their own time. And one must pour out special times in searching the truths. Specially because our time is running out.

Note: the historicist and futurist interpretation are two different interpretations. They do not necessarily oppose each other, unless one is "dogmatic" about it, for they are clearly opposites. I would, however, Consider the various points as description of milestones. And build a timeline of events from our own understanding, and then confer it still further, with the Scriptures, and start ticking off.

I would like to bring into note the passage in Rev 9:1,2 and 11. A star fell out of heaven, this is the devil. And the smoke that came out of the pit resembles the deception with which the whole world is deceived.

How you have fallen from the heavens, O Hĕlĕl, son of the morning! You have been cut down to the ground, you who laid low the gentiles!
(Isa 14:12 The Scriptures 1998+)

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
(Isa 14:12 RNKJV)

The "stars" in the Bible also represents "angels":

The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven assemblies: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven assemblies.
(Rev 1:20 RNKJV)

Therefore, fallen stars are fallen angels, and are angels of the darkness of this world. The forces of evil.

Example deception: Today, we hear of the coming "New World Order", but we have been living in the "New World Order" ever since after WW2. The whole world is ruled by one power -- the "Image" of the beast.

Well, one might say, we don't see the "beast" ruling. Yes that is right because, the "beast" is concealed. Because they do not want the world to see that they are ruling the world. Because this "beast" got a mortal wound, and was healed.

Who is the Beast in the book of Revelation - WLC - Youtube --
http://www.youtube.com/v/-IyR6RZ49Co

This is why John described it as the "Image" of the "beast", for the "beast" was concealed by the "Image", the "Icon", and this is why the word "beast" is strikedthrough as a reminder that they are concealed in the background.

How do we know this?

We found the answer in Zechariah 5:7,8 a woman (resembles the "beast"), "sitting inside the ĕphah-measure" (resembles the false standard this woman introduce to the world).

“And see, a lead cover lifted up, and this: a woman sitting inside the ĕphah-measure!”
(Zec 5:7 The Scriptures 1998+)

And he said, “This is Wrongness!” And he threw her down into the ĕphah-measure, and threw the lead weight over its mouth.
(Zec 5:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

During the reformation period, this woman was discovered to be teaching fiction, and eventually this woman was stopped, "wounded", according to Revelation.

But then in later generations, specially the generations after that, the "lead" that was lifted up by the reformation was put back again by the "protestants" to cover the woman. This woman here is the "false ekklesia" that is riding the "beast".

The first woe brought out smoke from the abyss.

This smoke is the smokescreen of deception, false teaching, false standard, that darkened the sun (the light, the truths) and also pollutes the air, causing hazards to one's beliefs or faith. (Rev 9:2)

And he opened the pit of the deep, and smoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit.
(Rev 9:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

Because these truths have been concealed by the smoke from the abyss. The smoke represents the delusions permeating in every aspect of our lives. Education, Economy, Government, Politics, Science, and more. Even the churches that claimed to be the remnant, or the true church.

Like a ninja, an assassin, behind or in a smoke. But on verse 11, we are given a clue of who is behind this smoke. Abaddon or Apollyon. Which is the devil that the powers-that-be worships.

  • Please note: a ninja is a subliminal message also, it represents the yin and the yang, the occult white magic symbol.

    It represents good and evil in one, or inside one, inside of us, and it is a character representing the devil, portrayed as both a hero for mankind and also an adversary.

    In this way, the message penetrates the minds of the people of Yah, like smoke penetrates a cloth or screen and pollutes the air.

    And eventually one considers good and evil indeed coexist. And then"good", which is then, actually the same character as evil, always wins, to make it a virtue desirable. So one cannot destroy evil but control it.

  • Might this be the reason why most people today justifies their wrong doings by "being human"; Because "humans make mistakes" -- the result of this yin/yang -- duality -- nature? That even the "chosen", the "ekklesia" may be deceived? And might this be also the "mark of the beast"?

Please see:

I used to believe the devil has a seed, Cain. But now, not anymore, but I do not discount it yet, until, I can personally clear it, firsthand.

  • This was what I wrote before:

    I believe "evil" resides only in the seed of the devil, Cain. And might his descendants have this as well? I am inclined to believe that this is the case, and the people of Yah, are deceived to have this as well. And made this cliche -- "humans make mistakes" a welcome excuse and overused at that.

Evil is the result of hardened hearts toward the Torah, Torah-lessness

And might this "evil" in one be also the nature of the "beast" and shall be unleashed in its appointed time, as well?

The Beast Will Be Unleashed - Youtube -
http://youtu.be/THmqfbVAbpg

The powers-that-be wants to take away our freedom of choice that Yah our creator has given each and every one us.

The "Tribulation" is a struggle within, within each one of us, in faith. Believing on the Blood of the Lamb of Yah who can cleanse us from our sins.

When Atheism would spread wide and becomes formalized politically, it will then become known as Fascism or Communism as we know today.

But we are not yet there, and they want the world to transition from the current "New World Order" we are living in, to the Fascist, Communist world ruled by one. And they are marketing it as the "New World Order" because we have already experience it and we know it from our guts because it had been there subliminally.

And it would be easy to swallow rather than telling the world directly that it shall be a Fascist, Communist world ruled by the power behind the "Image".

Except that this time around, the "Image" will no longer be concealed, for whoever is behind the "Image" will now come out in the open. The "son of destruction" that Paul and John was telling us.

Let no one deceive you in any way, because the falling away is to come first, and the man of lawlessness1 is to be revealed, the son of destruction,

Footnote: 1Some texts read sin instead of lawlessness. This man might be the same one we read of in the prophecy in Isa. 14:12 – Hĕlĕl (“Heileil”), meaning “the shining one,” the sovereign of Baḇel.
(2Th 2:3 The Scriptures 1998+)

And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast.
(Rev 13:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

The First Woe, The 5th Trumpet

And the fifth cherub trumpeted. And I saw a star out of the heaven falling onto the earth. And the key to the pit of the abyss was given to it.
(Rev 9:1 HRB)

And he opened the pit of the abyss. And smoke went up out of the pit, like smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, and the air, by the smoke of the pit.
(Rev 9:2 HRB)

And they have a king over them, the cherub of the abyss. In Hebrew his name was Abaddon, and in Greek he has the name Apollyon.
(Rev 9:11 HRB)

Smoke came up out of the shaft
-- Revelation 9:1-12 --

When Abaddon opens the shaft of the abyss, John records that “smoke came up out of the shaft like smoke from a great furnace so that the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke from the shaft” (v. 2). Some commentators, like Matthew Henry, see the smoke symbolically: “The devils are the powers of darkness; hell is the place of darkness. The devil carries on his designs by blinding the eyes of men, by extinguishing light and knowledge, and promoting ignorance and error. He first deceives men, and then destroys them; wretched souls follow him in the dark, or they durst not follow him” (Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible: Complete and Unabridged in One Volume, Rev. Rev. 9:1–12).
http://oncedelivered.net/2012/05/31/smoke-came-up-out-of-the-shaft-revelation-91-12/

The devil having the key to the abyss, the abode and prison house of the dark forces, the fallen angels, with his human agents, I call the powers-that-be that also created Islam. Yes, dear readers, Islam was created by the powers-that-be to rise against "Christians" at this period in time.

And it was given five (prophetic) months to wiped Christians in the east.

209 - When Trumpets Sound / Total Onslaught - Walter Veith - Youtube --
http://youtu.be/j3WggB3OoYc?t=1h10m44s

Five months is 150 days or 150 (prophetic) years. (Num 14:34, Eze 4:6)

‘According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days – a day for a year, a day for a year – you are to bear your crookednesses forty years, and you shall know My breaking off.
(Num 14:34 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And when you have completed them, you shall lie again on your right side and shall bear the crookedness of the house of Yehuḏah forty days, a day for a year. I have laid on you a day for a year.
(Eze 4:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

It is this time that Islam rise to annihilate and kill early Christians in the east. But they were only given five months to do this atrocities. But transformed the map of the east permanently to this day.

July 27, 1299 Othman I invaded Nicomedia (E. Gibbons) 1299 + 150 = 27 July 1449 When the last of the Greek emperors, Constantine, took the throne with permission from the Sultan.

Please note: only the torture ended. But the smoke continuous to spread worldwide. The smoke is not only Islam, the smoke represents "ALL False Teachings" and Islam is just one of them.

Some of these "False Teachings", created by the powers-that-be, are:

  • Atheism (Fascism or Communism when politically formalized)
  • New Age Teachings (Reason or Rationalization, Spiritualism, Humanism)
  • Freemasonry (Witchcraft, Magic, Occult, and the like)
  • Catholicism
  • Islam

Might this be repeated again? And if so, might Revelation 9:11 (9-1-1) also be a clue of the beginning of this happening again? Beginning at the 9-1-1 event that just happened? And might Islam repeat the same thing it did in the east, and this time around, in the west? Only time will tell.

The Second Woe, The 6th Trumpet

Trumpet five and six, in the historicist account, have sounded already and today we are somewhere towards the end of trumpet six.

And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Yah,
(Rev 9:13 RNKJV)

saying to the sixth messenger who had the trumpet, “Release the four messengers, those having been bound at the great river Euphrates.”
(Rev 9:14 The Scriptures 1998+)

And the four messengers, those having been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
(Rev 9:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

Trumpet Six sounded and the Islamic power comes to an end. Here is the literal interpretation by Josiah Litch, published two years before it happened.

"hour, and a day, and a month, and a year = 391 years 15 days". 27 July 1449 + 391 years 15 days = 11 August 1840. On this date the Turks placed themselves under the protection of the Western powers against the Egyptians.

 The literal interpretation of Josiah Litch:

Whichever way we take it, I believe these accounts are trustworthy.

I also believe, this might happen again, albeit may no longer be for 150 years. For I have learned that although fulfilled prophecy will not repeat again, many people look at them as a type of some future events as well.

I believe, we are living in the final moments of the sixth seal, and the second woe, the sixth trumpet before the third woe, the seventh trumpet sounds. And the 7th Trumpet are the seven last plagues.

Before The Plagues -- The 7th Trumpet

The Story Of The Seven Last Plagues --
http://www.revelation-today.com/Plagues7.htm

Before these plagues fall, Yah will seal those peoples who believe on the Lamb of Yah, Yahushua HaMashiack, who cleanse us from our sins.

Please note: everyone in the world are written in the book of life, (Rev 3:5) except those who are already of the devil because their names were blotted out from the book of life.

He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes, and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers.
(Rev 3:5 The Scriptures 1998+)

Those of the devil shall know who the devil is. And shall worship the devil. Because their names have not been written in the "Book of Life".

And all those dwelling on the earth, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation of the world shall worship him.
(Rev 13:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

“The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the pit of the deep and goes to destruction. And those dwelling on the earth, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, shall marvel when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
(Rev 17:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

If one is not certain, then most probably one is deceived and one's name is most likely still in the "Book of Life", but one is in a very grave danger of being "blotted out" of the "Book of Life".

Our heavenly Father wants every one of us to be saved. To inherit the Kingdom of Yah and His Messiah, Yahushua. But He does not forced it on us, on anyone; neither He resort to deceive one to be saved without one exercising one's freedom to choose.

Remember, there is a war going on right now, between the forces of good and the forces of evil. And mankind are in the kingdom of the forces of evil, this world. Because man has fallen from the standard of the Most High by the deception of evil.

But mankind is given a chance to redeem oneself to become once again, the sons and daughters of the Most High, Psa 82:6,7. By the blood of the Lamb of Yah.

Only one blood sacrificed is able to save mankind, the Blood of the Lamb of Yah. Yahushua bore the sins of mankind, so that mankind will have a chance to redeem oneself to eternal life. By believing in the Father and the Son.

“For Yah so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life.
(John 3:16 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me possesses everlasting life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
(John 5:24 The Scriptures 1998+)

One must exercise his freedom of choice while he still can, before Atheism becomes formalized. A formalized Atheism is called Fascism or Communism, also known as the coming "New World Order" the powers-that-be is preaching and marketing to the whole world today as a world like America.

If it were true, the middle-class in America would have been brought up to higher levels. And the poverty around the world would have been controlled already by now. Instead what is happening is the exact opposite.

The middle-class in America is brought low to poverty levels, and poverty around the world has worsened. Why? Because "beggars cannot be choosers". The powers-that-be wants the whole world to become poor like beggars.

And their method is to taxed and introduced more taxes in any shape and form, worldwide. This is why the whole world has central banks and tax collection agencies.

Although, freedom is only experienced and known by only about 25% percent of the world's population. America also represents the last bastion of freedom in the world. It must be infiltrated. Its constitution must no longer reflect the teachings and principles of the Bible.

By twisting the Bible teachings into evil teachings. And making the teachings of evil -- the occult -- into teachings of the "light". By packaging it with titles such as "new age movement", "spiritualism", "age of reason", "age of knowledge", "the venus project", "new world order", and more.

But these things must happen in order that the prophecy written in the Bible will be fulfilled.

And it is already taking shape and form:

End Time: U.S. Wages war on Christians - Youtube --
http://youtu.be/XzenBZ9LMcg

End Times: DHS classifies ALL CHRISTIANS as potential TERRORISTS - Youtube --
http://youtu.be/nrPidbbV9P0

But all of us are given freedom of choice to choose (eternal) life or to choose death (damnation). And the devil's work is deception so that one would choose death (damnation) without even knowing it.

And during these tribulation is the strong delusions. Because of the smoke that came out of the abyss, concealed the light, the truths and polluted the air.

Remember, the "smoke" from the abyss represents the deceptions by the powers-that-be. If one is not grounded on the truths of "the Torah and the Testimony", the "Scriptures", one would fall on any sides of the oppositions, that the powers-that-be have already programmed subliminally, through all media.

And All these oppositions to "the Torah and the Testimony" will come to "one mind".

Might this be why we are seeing so many literal interpretations, also, of the end time prophecies?

It may very well be so.

And I am not saying that prophecies cannot be literal. I am just emphasizing the danger of becoming "fanatic" with one interpretation, and one is caught in the devil's snare, and becomes apathetic and be unaware.

See?! One group expects the third temple in Jerusalem and then the 7-year tribulation starts or the "great tribulation" starts. And this may or may not happen.

One group, however, believes that the temple is our bodies. Also make sense to me.

Another group expects a "Sunday Law" that should trigger the "great tribulation" and a time to leave the cities.

I mentioned these three here to suggest that we should consider all three, but not be "dogmatic" about it.

Instead, let us, in spirit, ask Father to teach us the truths, and in love, do share what understanding you might have. As I do, in this blog. This way we are brought together in love, coming out -- "called out" -- from all churches, denominations, and religions.

In the past, many do not believe that the state of Israel would ever stand up again. My previous church was one of them. But it happened.

So it is very dangerous to be "dogmatic" or "fanatic" about one interpretation of prophecy. Specially in these very final moments before the plagues fall -- the 7th trumpet. Because we do not know when the sealing would take place, for that day and hour only Father knows.

Because, considering that we are engulfed by the smoke from the abyss (the deception and delusions of the devil), we are in a sense groping and coughing in the smoke that came out of the abyss.

For example, the "mark of the beast" many believed it is a literal mark. Another believe it is "false worship", and yet another is "Sunday worship". And lately it came to my understanding that it may not be the case and it can be a mixture of all these.

And I'm not saying the interpretation that stirred my thoughts is the one. What if Father wants us to consolidate all these information from the body of Yahushua? If one is "fanatic" about one's interpretation, then one could missed out on the big picture.

What if none of these is the case? And tomorrow is the sealing and then seven days later (as in the days of Noah) the plagues fall. The plagues is also known as the wrath of Yah poured without mixture. Then one would be caught by surprise, wouldn't it?

The wrath of Yah is the judgments to His enemies. The enemies of "the Torah and the Testimony". This will immediately happen after the "Great Tribulation" when all the people of Yah are sealed.

But before this wrath falls is the "Great Tribulation", aka "Jacob's Trouble", aka judgments of Yah to His people, through the nations, to purify the nations where His peoples are. And culminates to the sealing of those who comes out purified in the fire -- the "Great Tribulation".

During these times, many peoples from all walks of life will find Yah, will repent and return to Yah and they shall be saved. These peoples may come from Islam, Hindu, Buddhism and all religions.

If the Ruach HaQodesh of Yah has touched you, please share these posts far and wide. In this way, we both throw the seed, and I pray to the Father, in the name of Yahshua HaMashiack, to water the seeds, to touched every one that is reached by this blog to gain understanding and be led to the truths, and shall be saved. Ahmein!!!

Many will also curse these teachings and will be in danger.

The sealing is akin to the door of the Ark shut by Yah. When this happens, one's fate is sealed.

“He who does wrong, let him do more wrong; he who is filthy, let him be more filthy; he who is righteous, let him be more righteous; he who is set-apart, let him be more set-apart.
(Rev 22:11 The Scriptures 1998+)

Those who have the "Character of Lawlessness" or more precisely the "Character of Torah-lessness", which came to my thoughts as the "mark of the beast", will have no more chance of redemption at this point in time of Rev 22:11, when this happens.

Then the Wrath of Yah falls, as in the days of Noah, seven days after. The Wrath is the 7th trumpet, aka the seven last plagues. And this is the judgments to the enemies of "the Torah and the Testimony".

As The Days Of Noah and Lot

But also consider the days of Noah and Lot: (Mat 24:37-39, Lk 17:26-33)

“And as the days of Noaḥ, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be.
(Mat 24:37 The Scriptures 1998+)

“For as they were in the days before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ entered into the ark,
(Mat 24:38 The Scriptures 1998+)

and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be.
(Mat 24:39 The Scriptures 1998+)

The days of Noah and Lot:

“And as it came to be in the days of Noaḥ, so also shall it be in the days of the Son of Aḏam:
(Luk 17:26 The Scriptures 1998+)

“They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ went into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.
(Luk 17:27 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And likewise, as it came to be in the days of Lot: They were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building,
(Luk 17:28 The Scriptures 1998+)

but on the day Lot went out of Seḏom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed all.
(Luk 17:29 The Scriptures 1998+)

“It shall be the same in the day the Son of Aḏam is revealed.
(Luk 17:30 The Scriptures 1998+)

“In that day, he who shall be on the house-top, and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back.
(Luk 17:31 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Remember the wife of Lot.
(Luk 17:32 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Whoever seeks to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life shall preserve it.
(Luk 17:33 The Scriptures 1998+)

And Paul reminds us:

Do you not remember that I told you this while I was still with you?
(2Th 2:5 The Scriptures 1998+)

And now you know what restrains, for him to be revealed in his time.
(2Th 2:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

For the secret of lawlessness is already at work – only until he who now restrains comes out of the midst.
(2Th 2:7 The Scriptures 1998+)

And then the lawless one shall be revealed, whom the Master shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth and bring to naught with the manifestation of His coming.
(2Th 2:8 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please read:

Remember, The book of Revelation is the revelation of Yahushua HaMashiack (the Messiah). And He is in control of everything.

The Next Events

The prophecies in the Bible do not give details of the events that will take place. But, I believe milestones. And throughout history we can learn how man, the governments of this world transform from one form to another, and how they perish according to what is written in prophecy, In relation to Yah's people.

Again, may I remind, under the historicist interpretation, we are today, in the sixth seal, the sixth trumpet of revelation and towards the end, and the characteristic of the "ekklesia" in our day would be the "seventh ekklesia".

So, like the men of Issachar, we also ought to know the current events, through the lens of prophecy.

Then, Is this one of the events lined up to happen next?

AMERICA WILL BETRAY ISRAEL! Then sudden destruction will come upon her. - Youtube --

Full presentation: Prophecy of End Times by Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, August 2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0i3rcpg42c

Remember, this has to happen, to cleanse the land. Isaiah 19:22 says, Yah shall strike Egypt, and this Egypt here represents the states of America and Israel, yes Israel because the inhabitants of Israel are not the real Hebrew Jews.

And YAH shall strike Egypt. He shall strike and heal. Then they shall return to YAH, and He shall hear them and will heal them.
(Isa 19:22 HRB)

Egypt also represent the whole world we live today. So, either after or before this event shall happen, we shall see destruction in various places. The super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in the Philippines, could have been the start of these series of destructions, that are to happen according to prophecy.

Matthew 24:21,22:

For there will be great suffering, such as has not happened from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be.
(Mat 24:21 HRB)

“And if those days were not shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the sake of the chosen ones those days shall be shortened.(Mat 24:22 The Scriptures 1998+)

Considering the historicist account, we know then that this has started already with the first woe, and getting worst as the days passed. Today, we see these things happening intensified and will continue to do so, waking many people still.

Here is also an interesting look to the future through the lens of prophecy. Looking at the middle east in our day.

The NeoConservative Christian Right - Biblical Prophecy -
http://oneway2day.wordpress.com/tag/biblical-prophecy/

Please note: we do not exactly know how these following events would unfold, except that these events will happen. And rather than be "dogmatic" about it, let us, rather, prepare to "tick off" whichever happen, as it happens.

And Then, He who restrains will soon come out of the midst (2Th 2:7). And The veil on all peoples' eyes shall soon be lifted And the Enemy will be revealed, and all its evil deeds and works. And those who keep their stand with their Creator and master Yahushua will see the Evil in the "Good mask".

But those who have the "mark of the beast" -- the "Character of Lawlessness" will wonder at the revelation of the "Son of Destruction" masqueraded as the "angel of light""the bearer of light", or "the messenger of peace", and thus evil deceives many more. I hope it won't be too late for one.

Nevertheless, the Father has already revealed this to us. Do not be weary. Seek Yah while He can Still be found. And repent.

Again, seek the Father, Yah is His memorial name to all generations. HalleluYah!!! All praises to Yah!!!

And believed on the atoning blood of the Lamb that can purify one, and give one the power to become sons and daughters of the Most High.

We have already covered the sixth trumpet above and it seems much of it has already been fulfilled. Also please review the story of the seven seals here:

The Story Of The Seven Seals - The Sixth Seal -
http://www.revelation-today.com/Seal6th2.htm

Some of the Bible students however, are looking at this literally and I am inclined to consider this as a repeat, but I am not "dogmatic" or "fanatic" about it. So that, if it happens, I can then ticked this off, or if the historicist account is bound to happen then I can write this off as well. I hope that make sense.

Now let's look at the sixth seal.

And I looked when He opened the sixth seal and saw a great earthquake came to be. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.
(Rev 6:12 The Scriptures 1998+)

And I believe "a great earthquake" would mean a "worldwide earthquake". It might be in varying degrees in different areas but it will be worldwide. If it happens.

Might it happen in various places at one time? Or might it happen in different places in various times? We do not know for certain but the keyword here is "great". And I think it means "worldwide".

And This would align with Bon's hearing from Yah as well.

Please see:

And the stars of the heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs, being shaken by a strong wind.
(Rev 6:13 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please note: there are several comets heading to earth as was reported already by NASA. Comet ISON has passed already, and there are more comets coming heading towards earth. All has the same potential threat as ISON was projected.

Please note: the excitement that was created by the literalist interpretation of this. If one is "dogmatic" or "fanatic" about this, then my guess would be that those who got excited are in danger of falling into apathy overtime for expecting something to happen and it did not.

Although more comets are heading towards earth, and have the same potential threat as comet ISON, it may also be another false alarm. This is not to say, to disregard it, but to guard oneself, by also considering the historicist interpretation of prophecy.

Also note, the powers-that-be also expect these things to happen, because they will fight with the "Lamb". So, they are preparing for this big event.

And heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 
(Rev 6:14 The Scriptures 1998+)

This looks very very scary. Stranger than fiction it seems. Might this be the event Yahushua meant by this:

“Let him who is on the house-top not come down to take whatever out of his house.
(Mat 24:17 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And let him who is in the field not turn back to get his garments.
(Mat 24:18 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing children in those days!
(Mat 24:19 The Scriptures 1998+)

If it is, then it means, whatever preparation we do, like storage of food, clothing and whatever, might yet become stumbling blocks, like Lot's wife. Just making a note.

This is not meant to discourage preparation, we are commanded to prepare. But lest our preparation became an "idolatry" that we forget the most pressing things before us -- the very coming of the kingdom of Yah that we are waiting for and missed the opportunity.

And the sovereigns of the earth, and the great ones, and the rich ones, and the commanders, and the mighty, and every slave and every free one, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,
(Rev 6:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

Yes, the powers-that-be expect something catastrophic will happen very soon. They are telling the world about it, but they cannot totally hide everything they are doing.

and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him sitting on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb,
(Rev 6:16 The Scriptures 1998+)

because the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
(Rev 6:17 The Scriptures 1998+)

There is this message from Bonnie of NSW, Australia, that the Master, Yahushua HaMashiack will reveal Himself to each one of us. Giving us all a chance to accept Him or reject Him. I believe this is in line with Matthew 24:14.

And this good news of the Kingdom shall be published in all the earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
(Mat 24:14 HRB)

Has the "good news of the Kingdom of Yah" been "published" already? I believe, it already has, or approaching to "the end", through the Internet. And I believed, we are already at the time of "the end". or just moments to "the end".

Are we going to see the beginning of the fulfillment of the following verses in a short moment now? And might this last to the end of the great tribulation?

And the ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but will receive authority as kings one hour with the beast.
(Rev 17:12 HRB)

One (prophetic) hour is 15 days.

Might we see this coming to fulfillment in a few moments now?

Might The ten kings, be the kings of the ten divided kingdoms of Rome? And might the crowning of the "One World Trade Center" their symbolism that they are already of "one mind"?

These have one mind, and their power and authority they shall give up to the beast.
(Rev 17:13 HRB)

Are we seeing the kingdoms of the world coming together, getting ready to battle? Looking at the news we hear today, through the lens of this particular verse, Rev 17:14, we can wade through information and misinformation.

These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Master of Masters and King of kings, and the ones with Him are the called and chosen and faithful ones.
(Rev 17:14 HRB)

Has anyone noticed, that the military forces around the world, although mainstream media would like us to believe they are in conflict with one another, they all seemed to be working together?

Might this be an indication that they are coming together in "one mind" to destroy a number of mankind by their war games? Has anyone noticed?

A woman in "Bible Prophecy" is an "ekklesia", so a harlot is an "unfaithful ekklesia".

And he says to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples and crowds and nations and tongues.
(Rev 17:15 HRB)

Here the ten kings will (definitely) hate the "harlot" -- the mother of all the "unfaithful ekklesia".

And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, and will make her desolated and naked. And they will eat her flesh, and will burn her down with fire.
(Rev 17:16 HRB)

Might "desolated and naked" mean -- her "false Christian robe" will be removed and she will be seen in her true nature, Her "occult""demonic" nature?

And, Might "eat her flesh" and "will burn her down with fire" mean she will be "publicly sacrificed" to the beast as part of their "occult", "demonic" ritual, at this point in time to be in the open?

And please note, this "harlot" represents a congregation of "unfaithful people" -- the "false Christians", the "false religions, churches, and denominations" in our world today.

And, Might that mean "the public sacrifice" or persecution and/or killing of these "false ekklesia" or peoples of the false belief whose beliefs they believed to be true?

Please note:

These alludes that, The powers-that-be redeemed this "harlot" as an instrument of their deception. And now, John is telling us, the powers-that-be are going to do away with her, they do not need her anymore, she has fulfilled her purpose. To Deceived as many people to believe her lies, to be sacrificed to the beast.

And they are now, going to reveal their true nature. And to reveal the "beast". For their time "given" has come, for them to be of "one mind". That this Scripture shall be fulfilled:

For Elohim gave into their hearts to do His mind, and to act in one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the Words of Elohim shall be fulfilled.
(Rev 17:17 HRB)

And that prophecy also seemed to align with this prophecy in Isaiah 19:4:

“And I shall deliver the Mitsrites into the hand of a cruel master, and a fierce sovereign to rule over them,” declares the Master, יהוה of hosts.
(Isa 19:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

This woman "harlot" also represents a "great city, having dominion over the kings", in our day's context, this would mean a sovereign state, that do not pay taxes to any body.

Because they are the collector of taxes of the whole world. It is their business to enslave peoples of the world, without them knowing it. And many centuries is proof they have done it, secretly, surreptitiously, deceptively.

And the woman whom you saw is the great city, having dominion over the kings of the earth.
(Rev 17:18 HRB)

There are only three sovereign states in our modern world. Sovereign because they do not pay any taxes to any entities. Rather, they are the collector of taxes from all nations of the world. A city within a city.

They are also referred to as "The Holy Trinity". The first one represents the "father", and that is the Vatican. The second represents the "mother", which is the inner city of London. And the third one, represents the "son", which is the Washington, D.C.

3 'City States' Rule the World - Youtube --
http://youtu.be/AeG5549b0Ng

These three sovereign states, represents the "Icon" -- the "Pyramid", which John described in Revelation as the "Image" of the "beast".

The power behind this "Image" is what John describes as the "spirit" -- "And there was given to him (America) to give spirit (power) to the *image* of the beast," (Rev 13:15a)

This "spirit" is the "power" behind this "Image" that America gave it. I call them "The-Powers-That-Be", also known as the "secret societies". But these so called "secret societies" are creations of "The-Powers-That-Be".

AND, Might we soon see persecution of peoples who do not fully obey their "occult", "demonic" teachings as they unveil them?

It won't probably look like that, but be in very tempting icing, as in the icing of a cake.

What we are hearing today about the "New World Order" is a formalization of Atheism. The smoke of Atheism, Islam, New Age Movement, Catholicism, witchcraft and occultism has to spread rapidly. And then, these various groups would turn to each other, and brother against brother.

Please Notice: "a third" of the people shall be killed. This is the sixth trumpet, and we are, today, towards the end of the sixth trumpet, if we view it with the historicist interpretation.

Might this mean, those who are deceived and nonredeemable be destroyed -- be "killed" to damnation, no chance of being resurrected to "eternal life"?

And this will come into fruition for it has been written that they be "of one mind".

Or, might the "number of the people of Yah" to be killed as written in the fifth seal has not been completed yet, and might this be completed at the culmination of the sixth seal?

For it has been written the wages of sin is death, so all must die except for a very few.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of Yah is everlasting life in Yahshua, Messiah our Master.
(Rom 6:23 HRB)

When it does, these peoples who are deceived and forwarding these philosophies will be greatly surprised to find out the Fascist and Communist government is what they have been led to set up. But they would "wonder". And the prophesies of Isaiah chapter 19 shall then be fulfilled.

The burden of Egypt. Behold, Yah rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
(Isa 19:1 RNKJV)

Egypt here represents the "unbelief systems" of the whole world: Atheism, Islam, New Age Movement, Catholicism, Fascism, Communism and more. Egypt also resembles the world we live today.

And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
(Isa 19:2 RNKJV)

This also mirrors what Yahushua had said:

“And brother shall deliver up brother to death, and a father his child. And children shall rise up against parents and shall put them to death.
(Mat 10:21 The Scriptures 1998+)

Please note, the language of prophecies, although visually graphic, can be both literal and symbolic.

The world we live today is a type of Egypt. We live in Egypt today. And the people of Yah have fallen slaves in this world.

And notice this verse, Isa 19:3, speaks of our day, where we can readily see from prominent personalities, who consult diviners, the occults, the shamans, the crystal balls and the like.

And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.
(Isa 19:3 RNKJV)

The "spirit of Egypt shall fail" -- might this speaks of one's realization that they have been deceived?

And the word "thereof" -- might it mean when it would fail, in the middle of the chaos, destruction and desolation?

Might this cruel master spoken here, the "anti-christ", the "son of perdition", the "lawless one" now, at this point in time in prophecy, be revealed to the whole world?

And this has to happen for it is also written in Revelation 17:17, that they "be of one mind". Meaning, they were deceived by the marketed "unbelief systems".

And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel master; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Master, Yah of hosts.
(Isa 19:4 RNKJV)

The "Egyptians" here resembles all the peoples of the world who do not believe on the One True Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel. And this cruel master spoken here, is the same one Paul described as the "the Lawless One" exposed. (Isa 11:4, 2Th 2:8)

And then "the Lawless One" will be exposed, "whom our Master Yahshua will consume by the spirit of His mouth," and will destroy by the brightness of His presence. (Isa. 11:4)
(2Th 2:8 HRB)

Might they also turn back to Yah?

Towards the end of the chapter says so. Their names could have been written in the "Book of Life".

And although They are smitten by Yah aka "Jacob's Trouble", they heard the message, took heed, repented, and returned to Yah. And Yah shall bless them, them who found the truth, obeyed, and endured to the end, for they too are people of Yah.

And Yah shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to Yah, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.
(Isa 19:22 RNKJV)

In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
(Isa 19:23 RNKJV)

In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:
(Isa 19:24 RNKJV)

And all peoples from all religions and beliefs systems, when they are smitten and healed, shall be blessed as well with Israel.

Whom Yah of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
(Isa 19:25 RNKJV)

For it is written:

But as many as received him [Yahushua HaMashiack], to them gave he power to become the sons of Yah, even to them that believe on his name:
(John 1:12 RNKJV)

The Adversary already knows what shall happen next, and he has his agents deliver subliminal messages already through Hollywood. And this is one of them.

And this one; An analogy to ponder about: "Where am I? Heaven or Hell"

... "Where am I? Heaven or Hell"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnIjgw5A-iI

Which reminds me, back again, to the "mark of the beast", which we are led to believe that we would know. However, my thoughts also led me to Revelation 19:20 and 20:10 which confirms that these peoples are "deceived" and were NOT "forced" as we are led to believe.

The Curse

Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.
(Zec 5:1 RNKJV)

One literal interpretation of this is a flying missile, similar to this picture here. At an instance it does make sense.

Here is a symbolic interpretation and also historicist interpretation.

The "flying roll" at a glance resembles the "Torah" roll. But verse 3 says, this "flying roll" is a curse to the whole world. If the "Torah" is our standard of truths. Then this "flying roll" would be the standard of untruths.

Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.
(Zec 5:3 RNKJV)

Verse 6 defines clearly what it is, "an ephah", a standard of measure.

And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.
(Zec 5:6 RNKJV)

We are told in Isaiah 8:20, that the standard of measure we are to use for is "the Torah and the Testimony".

Please see:

Verses 7 and 8 reveals the ephah has a "lead lifted", and there was "a woman sitting inside", and "wickedness is seen". The lead was closed again, covering the woman. This woman is also the "harlot" in Revelation. And so she continuous to deceive the whole world, concealed.

And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.
(Zec 5:7 RNKJV)

And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
(Zec 5:8 RNKJV)

A woman in the Bible represents an assembly. This woman sitting in the ephah is wickedness, meaning a false assembly. And this woman is the power behind the "Image" of the "beast".

Therefore, this is a false message spread by the false assembly that is hidden, yet was seen, but was covered yet again.

This represents the "reformation period", from Martin Luther and forward, which is now known as the "reformation period", also known as "protestantism". But noticed, "protestantism" yet covered the lead again.

And verses 9 and 11 is the final conclusion of this curse that we shall soon see fulfilled in our day.

Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.
(Zec 5:9 RNKJV)

And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.
(Zec 5:11 RNKJV)

Here is another interesting look at this:

Merchants of Tarshish... the timing of Gog-Magog & the oracle of Damascus ... The Rise or Fall of American Empire - by Doug Krieger --
http://www.the-tribulation-network.com/ebooks/rise_or_fall/rise_or_fall_of_american_empire_p8-9.htm

Now let's continue on with the historicist interpretation of this.

Two women represents two ekklesias -- assemblies. They have wings of a stork, an unclean bird.

And a bird represents "spirit".

So these women -- ekklessias -- have "unclean spirits" as their wings. Therefore, again, these women are not exposed and they lifted up a false standard between the earth and heaven. And be established in her own base.

This "spirit" alludes to the same "spirit" given by America to the "Image" of the "beast".

Might we have a confirmation of this happened already?

It is interesting to note that in this video, the standard of Islam is put high above the spiral of the "One World Trade Center".

Crowning The Tyrant --
http://youtu.be/-9pdJzVaJnc

So here, might one assembly be Islam as disclosed by the powers-that-be? A proponent of the one "god".

And the other woman is the woman in the ephah where she was seen with the lead up.

Might this woman in the ephah be Christianity which was discovered by the reformation that it had false teachings? Borne out of Freemasonry. (Please read the Scarlet and The Beast book by John Daniels)

Or listen to this audio presentation by William Cooper -- The Identity of Scarlet part 2 --

And the "land of Shinar" here is Babylon. So, where this standard is set up, that is her base.

In A Nutshell

The "Great Tribulation" is also known as "Jacob's Trouble" also known as "Judgements of Yah" to His people, to purify them. Like precious gold in the fire. But they will be saved, all who endure to the end.

This is why Revelation speaks of "a third", "a third", and "a third", because these judgments are mixed with mercy. There is still chance for a sinner to repent and turn back to Yah.

And might "a third" also mean, that those afflicted are those whose names are not written in the "Book of Life"; or whose names have been blotted out of the "Book of Life"?

Just making a rational, logical analysis. For "a third" of the "angels" had also fallen.

But the destruction around us should shake the strongest of all men. But those who shall die in the master, shall be saved. The rest will be lost forever. But they will still be brought back to life, so they can see in review their choices and then they will be judged and will be cast in the lake of fire and shall be no more.

The seven "ekklesias", the seven seals, and the seven trumpets of Revelation are prophecies in parallel.

Because the "body of Yahushua" is dispersed throughout different churches, denominations, and religions. It make sense to consider the historicist interpretation first and then also consider the literal interpretation, to dispel "dogmas" planted by the powers-that-be.

And to check with Scriptures, as always. Like the Bereans, and the men of Issachar. And do not be afraid, for Yahushua is in control. These things that are written in the prophecy must come to pass.

But take heed and "guard his commands", "the Torah and the Testimony". For this is the whole duty of man.

Entreaty

We have seen in the sixth seal how these events culminates to the coming great wrath of the Lamb. There may yet be many events in prophecy that are waiting to be uncovered and be watched for its fulfillment.

Seek יהוה while He is to be found, call on Him while He is near.
(Isa 55:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

Let the wrong forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to יהוה, who has compassion on him, and to our Elohim, for He pardons much.
(Isa 55:7 The Scriptures 1998+)

One would know, one has found Him, when one begins to uncover some truths. For the Father shall send the Helper, or the Comforter, which is actually His Son, Yahushua HaMashiack, in the Father's Ruach HaKodesh.

Yahuwah Bless You!!!
