Sign of the Times- Coming Like A Thief Part 3 of 3

     Okay here comes the conclusion to my little blog series. It is very long, but I kept getting more and more things I felt The Lord wanted me to address. This, with exception to the teaching I posted on Salvation, is probably the most controversial subject I have tackled on this sight. I have felt the Lord wants these subjects addressed more than anything else. You see Jesus taught his disciples very clearly about what salvation really was and the sign of His coming. And after 2000 years for some reason the salvation message, and the sign of His coming sounds nothing like what Jesus taught his disciples, or the prophets announced, or even what His disciples and Paul preached. What Happend? How did the church gets so off track so as to teach a meaningless gospel that does not teach the true message of the cross.



2 Peter 3:13:But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. 14: Therefore, beloved. Who is the beloved? You are a beloved and I am a beloved. We are the beloved. We are the beloved of the Lord. He is talking to the people of God right? 14: Therefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless, and blameless.



Now then the flood. Now I love this. Turn to Matthew 24:37. Now then the flood and the thief and the lightning is all the exact same thing. 37: For the coming of the Son of Man will just will be just like the days of Noah. It is going to be exactly like the days of Noah. When He says just like do you know what that means in the Greek? I t means just like. It means that in the Greek. 38: For in the days which where before the flood they where eating and drinking, they where marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark. So before the flood came; everybody was eating and drinking and marrying and doing the bebop and doing all this stuff, just having a good old time. Halleluiah, praise the Lord, Jesus is coming. Eating, drinking, marrying, and given in marriage until the day Noah entered the ark.


Now what is Noah doing for a hundred and twenty years? He is getting his ark ready. He is getting his garment ready so he will be protected. He is building his ark. And he is preaching out there and he is saying hey folks it is going to rain and they are going what is that? Because it had never rained before. There is a flood coming. What’s that? It had never happened before. Did it say over in Daniel, that it was going to be a time of distress like had never happened before? Over in Joel chapter 2 it talks about the locust army as being like nothing that has ever happened before? Here it is here talking about the same thing. It will be like nothing that has ever happened before. Noah for a hundred and twenty years was preaching and preparing and warning the whole time.


39: And they did not understand. You see that word understand. Again in Daniel, did we not read about those who had understanding and others did not. Did not understand means they did not have the Spirit of God working in their lives to understand what the word of God was saying. Noah was telling the people the truth for a hundred and twenty years and they did not believe it. So what did they get in return? A lie! 39: And they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away. So shall the coming of the Son of Man be. He said they did not know what was going on until all of the sudden Noah’s in the ark and the flood comes and guess what happens? Did it not just say the flood came and took them all away. So who gets taken away? It was the unrighteous that get taken away. The flood took them away. 40: Two will be working in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. The thief comes to steal which means take away; kill which means take away; destroy which means take away. The coming of the Lord; this is how He is coming. So He is coming like a flood. He is coming like a thief. He is coming like lightning. He is coming in destruction. The thief, the flood, the lightning is all the powers of darkness which I will show you in a minute.



40: Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. 41: Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left. 42: Therefore be on the alert. And then it goes into the thief. So the thief, the flood, and the taken away is all the same thing. The flood is what takes the people away.


Now turn to Luke 17:20. Now this is a similar account of Matthew 24, but I want you to see this in this light. He is talking to the Pharisees here; now watch this. 17:20 And having been questioned by the Pharisees as to when the kingdom of God was coming, and He answered them and said, The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed. In other words if you are looking kingdom of God with all these outward signs then you are going to miss it. It is not the way it is coming. The signs of His coming are not necessarily physically discernable. Now he goes on and says exactly the same thing about the coming of the Lord that we saw in Matthew. 21: Nor will they say, look here it is! Or there it is! For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst. 22: And he said to His disciples, the days shall come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will see it. 23: And they will say to you, Look there! Look here! Do not go away and do not run after them. He said you are looking for it, but you are not going to see it because it is spiritually discerned. Just like the kingdom of God comes and if you do not see it spiritually then you will miss it. 24: For just as the lightning, when it flashes out of one part of the sky, shines to the other part of the sky, so will the Son of Man be in His day. Now look at verse 26: And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it shall be also in the days of the Son of Man.


So He says it again. 28: It was the same as happened in the days of Lot. You see this He uses days of the Lord, days of Noah, and the days of Lot. It is all symbolic of the same thing. The days of Noah is like the days of the Lord. The days of Lot is like the days of the Lord. And in both cases destruction. Is that not interesting that Jesus used those two particular events to describe His coming? It happened in the days of Lot; they where eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building. Now look what is going on when the Lord comes. Everything is going along pretty smooth.


You have the peace and safety message. Everything is great. I have a chicken in the pot and a car in the garage. My church is growing. We all hang out together on Sundays and sometimes after church service get together to watch football. We hang out for coffee on Mondays for our weekly devotional. We have our kids youth and scripture time on Tuesdays at the church. We have a bible study on Wednesdays. Woman’s Bible study and Mother’s day out on Thursday morning and after that we go eat together, sometimes shopping, and sometimes we go see a movie together. We have high school football where we all hang out on Friday and sometimes fellowship before or after. And Saturday we go watch the kids play soccer, football, volleyball, or whatever activity that our kids are involved in at the time. We are just biding our time doing the best we can waiting on Christ to come and rescue us from our bills, our jobs; the boss we can not stand; The job you can not find because of the lousy economy; the mother in law who gets on our nerves; the neighbor next door who does not take care of his yard like he should; the teacher who says your child has a behavior problem, and I can not forget the ex-spouse. I am going to miss face book a little though. I sure do like playing Mafia wars, Farmville, and all those other games I play to pass the time. I hope heaven will have things to entertain me. I sure do not want to get bored. Do you see what I am saying guys and gals?





Okay back on subject. So the days of Noah, the days of Lot, the days of the Son of Man and the day of the Lord are all the same type. Luke 17:29 But on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone. So in other words Lot was rescued because he knew it was coming and he was ready and when the destruction came it did not touch him. Lot was not raptured, Noah was not raptured. 31: On that day, let not the one who is on the housetop, and whose goods are in the house go down to take them away. In other words, if your heart is in this world, you better not go after it, because you are going to miss God. And likewise the not the one who is in the field turn back. 32: Remember Lot’s wife. What happened? Her heart turned back to the things of the world and she missed God. And she was with Lot. She was with Lot. They had prepared to leave the city. They had gathered stuff for their journey away from the city. They had started the journey to separate themselves from the judgment that was coming. And her heart went back to the things of the world. And what happened? She became a pillar of Salt. And this was Lot’s wife. What if Lot had said well honey, I know we forgot to grab our wallets; I saw them on the kitchen counter, let’s hurry back and get them. Then you would have had to pillars of salt. Do you guys see how serious this thing is?


I mean even Lot’s own wife did not escape the judgment of destruction. How do you think Lot must have felt? He is going down this road that the Lord has placed him on. He knows what God is saying and his wife turns back and boom she is turned into salt and is destroyed, and she missed it.



 33: Whoever seeks to keep his life shall lose it, And whosoever loses his life shall preserve it. I am going to take this passage for a moment because this is one of the most profound statements in all the Bible right here, and it is spoken by Christ Himself. Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it. How many churches today preach a gospel of saving your life? Think about it. This is how deceptive Satan really is. If Satan can get you to buy into a message of salvation that is all about saving your life then he has got you. How many churches preach a gospel of salvation that says Jesus can save your life because He paid the ultimate sacrifice. Salvation is not about changing your lifestyle or turning away from your sinful nature. Salvation is about admitting to God you are a sinner. He understands you are a sinner; that is why He sent His Son to die for you. All you have to do is walk this aisle and say this prayer admitting to God you are a sinner And ask Him to forgive you. Then you will save your life. He has to forgive you because He has to forgive anyone who says the words because He is God. Then you can hang out with us on Sundays and we can wait on the rapture together. How many churches preach that salvation message or a similar variation of it? That is not salvation. I am sorry brothers and sisters but that message is a complete lie and Satan has deceived the pastors, teachers, apostles, and prophets, and this is a false gospel or antichrist gospel being proclaimed as Christianity in America and pretty much all over the world. The message of salvation or gift of eternal life is the promise for the over comers who did not love their life even to the point of death.



Churches of America are full of people who will not die, go to the cross, or inconvenience themselves for anybody much less God. But they are there every Sunday proclaiming I love you Lord, I praise you Jesus, but I hate my neighbor. I hate my wife, I hate my boss, I hate my president, I hate Muslims, but I love you God. And when reviled they revile back, and when cursed they curse back. They slander, they gossip, and speak all manner of evil against those that don’t see things their way, or bow down to their wants and desires. They have never learned how to go to the cross and keep their mouth shut when the evil thoughts come that tell you to lash out prove your point and win the argument. Because they have never learned how to suffer in the flesh by putting to death the deeds of the flesh; the whole part about loving your enemies, especially the ones that have spoken evil of you is so foreign to their lips. They can quote the verse, but much like they quoted a sinner’s prayer to save their life, it is all a bunch of meaningless lip service because their whole basis for existence is centered around the person they are concerned the most for. Themselves! And they will fit God into their lives as long as it pertains to their own personal benefit. What can God do for me. It is all about me. Jesus died for me. What can Jesus do for me? So Jesus just becomes another idol in your life that feeds your selfish ambition and church, your friends, your job becomes all about what allows you to get the most enjoyment out of life, and you lose all site of becoming perfected in His love. Putting to death the deeds of the flesh and suffering to your selfish wants and desires becomes completely foreign to you and you do not know God. You could walk a aisle every Sunday until Jesus comes back and you will still split hell wide open on your way to being cast their because you refused to be led by the spirit and refused to die to you fleshly desires.


I read a testimony this week about the lead district attorney in Romania where it will cost you everything to profess the name of Christ and they will imprison you and torture you for doing so. They will imprison your family and do things to you or your family that would be considered inhumane and the most evil and wicked things that we would not consider doing to inmates on death row in this country. It really touched my heart. This man’s testimony really touched my heart and hopefully it will touch yours. He fell out of grace in his country and was thrown into prison. He did not know the Lord. While in prison he reached a point where he was completely at his wits end. He was badly malnourished and felt he was on the verge of dying from starvation. When he finally reached bottom he had a fellow inmate offer him his food. He gladly accepted and quickly devoured the fellow inmates food. After he finished he began to question the generous inmate as to his reason for incarceration. The prisoner told him he was sentenced to twenty years in Prison. The attorney asked him why are you here. The inmate said it is because I was convicted of feeding a Christian pastor that was wanted for the government for preaching the message of Christ. He was starving and hungry and in need of some food. The attorney said they put you in prison for that? The inmate said yes, do you not remember? The inmate said yes you where there, you where the lead prosecuting attorney for the state and you are the main reason I am in this prison. I just wanted you to know it is not a crime to feed those that are in need. It was shortly after that that this prosecuting attorney gave his life to the Lord and begin to proclaim the gospel from the prisons in Romania.


But here we are in America as Christians, we won’t even stand up for the unborn children who are discarded as easily as the disposable trash bags they are often placed into. We wont take a stand against homosexuality being flaunted in the workplace or our society. We rush to our favorite sporting events to worship our idols that we teach our children to idolize as well. We turn on our televisions or our computers to entertain our fleshly wants and desires. We hate on people who do not conform to our doctrines or creeds, but we confess to know the Lord as our personal Lord and savior but we won’t even confess Him to our next door neighbor, boss, family, coworker, or stranger because that might cause us a inconvenience. We have these mega churches that continue to flourish that preach a grace message that requires a one sided commitment of God giving up everything for the sinner that gives salvation to the wicked regardless of their moral decay and refuse to address a turning away from their evil ways and selfish ambition. God just changed his mind a realized man could not turn from his wickedness so he sent His son to be the perfect sacrifice for all your sins so you don’t have to repent or turn away from sin and suffer as Christ did. We call Jesus a liar every chance we get with the salvation message we preach today in America. What a joke the church has become, and we wonder why God says judgment begins with the house of God.


Okay that was entirely off subject from where I was going with this teaching, but I felt it needed to be addressed. Now where was I. Okay back to Luke 17:34 I tell you on that night there will be two men in one bed; one will be taken, and the other will be left. 35: There will be two women grinding at the same place; one will be taken and the other will be left. 36: Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other will be left. 37: And answering they said where Lord? And they said to Him where Lord? And He said to them. Where the body is, there also will be the vultures be gathered. So in other words they are asking Him where will the bodies be taken? Does Jesus say to heaven? I don’t see Jesus saying that. And Jesus answers them and said where they are taken there the vultures will be gathered. So in other words they are taken way to destruction where the spiritually dead body is. The vultures are a type o the powers of darkness. The flood is a type of the powers of darkness. The thief is a type of the powers of darkness. The lightning is a type of the powers of darkness. The false prophets preach a message that entices down the road of the powers of darkness. That is where the body is that is where the vultures will be gathered. In other words the powers of darkness take them away and they feed on them and destruction comes. That is what all this is saying.


Look brothers and sisters! I do not know how I can make this any clearer to you what Jesus or God is saying. It is all saying the same thing. But let’s take this one step farther. You may be thinking. How can you say the flood is the powers of darkness? Turn to Revelation 12:7. Now I am going to do a teaching on the flood here. Now this is how you have to interpret the scripture. Not by what someone tells you it says, but by what scripture says it says. In other words scripture interprets scripture. This is the way you can know you have got the truth. Scripture interprets scripture and people do not interpret scripture. God interprets scripture. The scripture is of no private interpretation.


Now Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. So Satan is being fought against by Michael and his angels. So there is a war in heavenly realm. And dragon and his angels wage war. So Michael has his angels and Satan has his angels. So angels does not always mean good angels. 8: They where not strong enough and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down. 9:And the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan who deceived the whole world was thrown down to earth and his angels where thrown down with him. Do you think there is hell on earth going on when that happens? Brother there is because Michael has arisen hasn’t he. Why do think he arose in Daniel 12? He rose up to wage war in the heavens. That is what I think. And Satan got kicked out. At this point my understanding is Satan no longer has any access to into heaven. At the point where Michael fought with him and kicked him out of heaven out. Satan no longer has any access to heaven. At the point where Michael fought with Satan and kicked him out; he has no access into heaven. Right now it says he is the accuser of the brethren so he has access. But once he is kicked out; he no longer has access.


Now Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, “Now the Salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ has come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night. Now Satan is cast down. 11: And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony and they did not love their life even to death. Did we just read back in Luke 17 whoever keeps his life will lose it and whoever loses his life will keep it? That is the same thing he is saying right here in Revelation 12. It is all the saying the same thing. It is just saying it different ways at different times. And they did not love their life even to death which is what He Jesus is saying in Luke 17. If you love your life more than you love Jesus, and you love your flesh more than you love Jesus. Or if you love the smooth words of a harlot more than you love Jesus. If you love anything more than you love Jesus then your name will not remain in the Lambs book of life. It will be erased if it was even there to begin with. And you will not go to heaven. That is the gospel. That is the real gospel.


Revelation 12:12 And for this reason, rejoice O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time. In other words this does not happen until some time in the tribulation period and then there is only a short time left. Then all hell is going to break loose when Satan gets thrown down. Now watch this! 13: When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.


Now who is the woman who gave birth to the male child? For all you Catholics who might be reading this, this is not talking about the virgin Mary. Mary is not on the earth at this time. So do not even try to go there because that is not what this is talking about. Israel is the woman that gave birth to the male child. Israel gave birth to Jesus. So Israel is the woman that gave birth to Jesus, the male child. So Satan is going to persecute Israel very harshly in these days. Do we see that is already starting to happen. Has anybody been watching what is going on in Israel recently. I have a contact in Israel who keeps me updated on what is happening over in Israel and it is getting absolutely crazy over there. It is like a giant powder keg about to go off any day. They are not talking about this on CNN, Fox News, or any of the other secular news affiliates for the most part. About the only garbage you will here about Israel from those secular news outlets is how Israel took Palestinian land that did not belong to them and now they are bullying the Palestinians and won’t give their land back. So if you want to know what is really going on I do not recommend those sources for you to know the truth.


Meanwhile you have Syria, Turkey, and Iran working secretly under cover, with the Hezbollah putting together a war strategy to hit Israel from united fronts to wipe Israel completely off the map. Israel is preparing for an all out assault against them that could start any day. Are we hearing about any of this from the secular news media. But over here in America where we have been Israel biggest ally in the past, we are so clueless to the truth and do not really even care to know the truth as long as we can live our comfortable lifestyle. We put a Muslim man into office as our president who will bold face lie to the people of America because he despises and hates Christianity and everything this country was founded on. He is rapidly destroying the infrastructure of a our military, our economy, and our religious freedom and the church won’t stand up raise their voice and call him on it. Because they are at ease in Zion sitting on their blessed assurance believing no harm is going to come on them because their life insurance with Jesus is all paid up. And Jesus is trying to warn them that they are about to be destroyed and the church says that can not possibly be true. Because they love their deluding influence coming from the mouths of the false prophets who preach the false peace and safety message and they no longer have ears to hear or eyes to see. It is like Satan is setting a huge trap for the people of God and the people are marching straight towards it like sheep to slaughter and when all is said and done only a remnant of the church is going to survive it.


And when you look at what the biblical definition of a remnant, which I’m not going to address in detail here so you will have to study this on your own if you even care to do so. But a remnant is usually referring to the outer edges of a field during harvest time because they would harvest the fields in a circular pattern and whatever was left in the corners of the field was the leftovers that where left for the poor, downtrodden, crippled, and elderly to come and glean, that could no longer afford to work as normal healthy person for wages. It was usually about ten percent of the field would be left over in the four corners of the field. So if only a remnant is going to be saved; that means that of the 100 percent of professing believers sitting in church today who think they are saved and are waiting to go to heaven. Approximately 90 percent of them are not going to make it. They are not only going to be taken away to destruction by the powers of darkness in this life time, but they are not going to have their name written in the lambs book of life because it was either never there or it got erased. Then they are going to be cast into hell. Are you starting to get a picture how serious this thing is? Or are you saying you are a complete lodestone, or you must be from outer space. Sometimes I wish I could be making this stuff up, and that it is not as bad as I am making it sound. But I am just reading my Bible and letting the scriptures say what they say. I am not giving my own personal interpretation here. I am just highlighting the word of God for you and saying wake up! If you are asleep. Do not be a foolish virgin.


Anyway back to Revelation 12 where we last read that Satan is going to be thrown down and then he is going to persecute the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14: And two wings of the great eagle was given to the woman, in order that she might fly to the wilderness to her place where she might be nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. Which is approximately three and a half years. So for three and a half years there is a protection of Israel. And the eagle is the one who protects them. Now I do not know of any Israeli’s flying around with eagles on their back. So if you see one please take a picture. So obviously this is symbolic. And it could be the United States. I do not know. Now I am not going to speculate a lot on this because I do not know exactly what this is referring to. But here is something to think about. The United States has been Israel’s closest ally for many years. And as of late we are not that great an ally anymore. The United States is often referred to as the eagle. How did Israel come by most of it’s military might from fighter jets, tanks, weapons, and missile defense systems? Think about it. The United States provided Israel with most of it’s military arsenal, Right? Did you know that our clueless president has been threatening Israel since he has come into office to cut off upgrades and replacement parts for Israel missile defense systems and fighter jets so that they will no longer be able to repair their military equipment if it breaks down, or upgrade their defense capabilities in the event of a attack against them? I can not prove that the eagle wings is making any reference to the United States but the questions I just presented to you and the facts I brought to light are very interesting and does give one something to ponder in their spare time.


And now verse 15: And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman. Now here is the flood of the last days. Now is this talking about a snake? Who is this talking about? Satan! Does everybody agree? He poured water out of his mouth like a river after the woman. So Satan puts water out of his mouth. Have you ever seen a snake spit water? So this is Satan pouring water out of his mouth like a river. Now did it say earlier with smooth words he is going to entice? Did it say false prophets mislead? Did it say the voice of the harlot is smother than oil? In other words the smooth words sounds like what? It sounds like the Spirit of God. Oil represents what? The holy Spirit right?


If Satan is going to deceive people through smooth words, false prophets and false teachers then it has got to sound good or it would not deceive you. It has got to sound like the real thing. When they counterfeit a hundred dollar bill; they try and make it look just like it. They do not make it like a ten dollar bill and paint it red. I mean they are going to make it look as close to the real thing as possible. So the deception is going to have to look very close to be able to deceive people. Especially those that are trying to seek God.


So Satan poured water like a river. So what comes out of peoples mouth? And Jesus talks about washing her with the water of the word. So Satan is trying o wash you with the water, but is the wrong word and the wrong water. Do you understand? Because the water represents the words. So what does it mean when it says like a river? Remember when it says out of your belly will flow rivers of living water. This He spoke of the Spirit. So Satan is speaking words, water, out of his mouth that sounds like a river like the Holy Spirit. Which is the same thing we read over in Proverbs 5 where it says smoother than oil is her speech. So Satan is speaking deceptive words. So what is coming out of the mouth of Satan? False teaching, false words, deceptive, or lying words sounding like the real thing to deceive you. And these words are poured out after the woman, Israel, so he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.


So how is she going to be swept away? What came and took the people away in the days of Noah? The flood. What is the flood of the last days? It is the powers of darkness speaking deceptive or lying words through the mouth of the false prophets, false teachers, out of the mouth of Satan. Because the false prophets when Micaiah gave the word to Ahab, then God allowed a lying demon to go in the mouth of Ahab’s prophets who where representing the Lord and the spoke a lying divination and deceived him. It is the same thing here. So does He say the flood is going to come and take them all away? What was the purpose of the flood here? It was to take Israel away. Do you see that? Look guys I have taught you about the flood, the thief, I have taught the Day of the Lord, and it is all saying exactly the same thing. And I proved it right out of the word in your Bible. But do you have ears to hear?


Turn to Isaiah 28:1-4. I want to show you some more about the flood so you will not be deceived on this. Woe to the proud drunkards of Ephraim, to the fading flower of His glorious beauty which is at the head of the fertile valley of those who are overcome with wine. He said do not be overcome with wine, but be filled with the Spirit. See if you get a lot of false words, false teaching, false prophets then you get overcome and you become drunk with the wrong wine, and the wine is the teaching. The new wine is the fresh move of the Spirit. But the Lord has a strong and mighty agent. A storm of hail, tempest of destruction like a mighty storm of over flowing waters. He cast it down to the earth with His hand. Who got cast down? Satan got cast down. Is he the flood and over flowing waters? Absolutely! Yes he is. Do you see that?


Now go back to Revelation 12:16: The earth helped the woman. Now what is the earth? I think it is the rest of mankind. And the earth opened it’s mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of it’s mouth. In other words, most of the world received that water and drank it. Jesus said eat my flesh and drink my blood. But here we see the world is drinking the wrong stuff and you get drunk , because it is the wrong wine or the wrong teaching. The earth helped the woman and opened up it’s mouth and drank the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. So what does that mean? The flood came and took them away. Do you guys see it. The flood came and took them all away because they drank it all up. Most people are going to buy into the false teaching and drink the it all up and be carried away by the flood. And now the dragon was enraged with the woman and then he goes on to make war with the rest of her children. Do you know who the rest of her children are? It is us because we grafted in because we keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. So who are the rest of the children of God? It is the one who keep the commandments of God. It is not the ones who say the prayer. It is the ones who make their garments white by walking in the righteous acts of the saints. It is all saying the same thing.


Now I am going to give you these verses real quickly which is more types and shadows on the flood. 2 Samuel 22:5 The ways of death encompass me the torrents of destruction overwhelm me. There is your waves and there is your flood. Job 38:8-11 Who enclosed the sea with its doors? When bursting forth it went out from the womb. It is talking about the sea. 10: I placed boundaries on it and set a bolt and doors, and I said thus far you will come but no farther and here shall your proud waves stop. He said when I built the sea and I set boundaries on it. The sea, the waves, and the flood are types of the powers of darkness and He set boundaries on that stuff. Does the sea ever flood? Does it happen today? There are boundaries, but when He removes the boundaries. The flood comes inland. So God sets a boundary on it but when He removes the boundary they can do what they want. Job 27:20-22 Terrors overtake him like a flood. A tempest steals him away inn the night. The flood comes and takes him away in the night like a thief and takes him away. It is the same thing we have been talking about this entire time. Psalms 69:2 I have come into deep waters and the flood overflows me. Psalms 69:15 May the flood of water not overflow me nor the deep swallow me up, nor the pit shut its mouth on me. You see it is all types. Psalms 90:5 You have swept them away like a flood. They fall asleep.


This next one will make you want to get rid of your anger and your jealousy. I am warning you right now that you better get rid of your anger and your jealousy. It is very hard to forgive others when you are controlled by anger and jealousy. And when you have un-forgiveness towards someone it leads to bitterness. It violates every law of love and is 180 degrees opposite who Jesus was and is calling us to be. Proverbs 27:4 Wrath is fierce and anger is a flood, who can stand before jealousy. I have taught on the anger of the Lord before. The anger of the Lord is the powers of darkness and Satan and I can prove it right out of your Bible. So when you walk in anger who’s image and likeness are you displaying. And the anger of the Lord is the flood that takes you away and is the water or flood that is poured out of the mouth of the dragon that makes the water bitter. The flood is the powers of darkness turned loose. Now who can stand before jealousy? So wrath is bad, anger is bad, but jealousy is worse than all of it. Jealousy is a very bad deal. We want to get rid of jealousy.


Okay I a almost through. Daniel 9:26 Then after 62 weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the Sanctuary. It’s end will come with a flood. Revelation 18 is speaking of the same event. And we know that is not Talking about a flood of water. Did Jesus say He was going to come like a flood and sweep them all away? I have shown you this over and over all over the Bible and it is all saying the same thing. Even to the end there will be wars and desolation are determined. Now for the last verse Psalms 93:3-4 and I will end with this. The floods have lifted oh Lord. The floods have lifted up there voice. So the floods have a voice. Do you see that? Have you ever seen water talk. Have you ever seen a flood come in and start talking to you. David is referring to the powers of darkness here. Which is the same flood of the last days. The floods have lifted up their voice and the floods have lifted up their pounding wave more than the sound of many waters. I just wanted to show that to you in the old testament so you could see that the flood, the waves, and all the storms have a voice and they are the powers of darkness which is what we have to be ready for and be on the alert for in the last days that are going to try and take you away to destruction in the last days. And it is not your physical body you need to be concerned about. Remember to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. They can kill my body. They can not crush my spirit or my soul.


I hope you got something out of this. If you are hungry for more I challenge you to read my blogs on Salvation and spiritual harlotry. I will post more things as the Lord directs me, but unfortunately I currently work seven days a week. I try to be involved as much as can with my church and I also have a family to attend to. So for me to make post is a slow and tedious process and requires me to sacrifice things like sleep. Which I am glad to do until it catches up with me.


Lastly remember when someone chooses to sin or do something evil to or against you, or falsely accuses you. Put on your garments of righteousness and forgive them. Forgiveness is a choice and not a feeling. God commands us to forgive and it is not optional and it is the ultimate way we can show Jesus we love Him. So pray for those that hurt you and die to your flesh that screams out revenge, or I’ll show you who is right. If you do this you will see the power of God in your life like never before and you will not only overcome the flood of words that will assault your mind and body in the last days, but you can teach others to do the same.


Love always,




From one who longs to serve my Lord and Savior and lay down my life for the brethren.

  1. Thanks so much for the series, I definetly wasn’t thinking you have lost your marbles or however you put it hehe The main thing the series has accomplished for me personally is a fear of the Lord and urgency to clean my garments, clean house, get close to the Lord and live for Him, increasingly. It was very eye-opening and reaffirms a sense of urgency that something is coming and its time to clean house and clean our garments.

     

    On another note, on your last paragraph about putting on garments to forgive and stuff, I find this is best or should be done by abiding in Christ. Cause Jesus said that He is the Vine and we are the branches and if we abide in Him and He in us we shall bear much fruit. (John 15:5) And we know the fruit God bears is the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfullness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22). As well as spending time in God’s presence and His word where we get transformed more into the image of Jesus and built up in the truth, strong in the His victory, as well as just putting to death the deeds of the flesh and seeking the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:18 and Romans 8:13). I guess also includes doing extra curricular activities which are wholesome and that the Holy Spirit can be involved in.

     

    P.S. Just a side note – I’ve been learning about abiding in Jesus from a book called Abide in Christ by Andrew Murray and we abide in Jesus by that same faith we were saved with, which is looking to God to enable and empower us to abide in Christ, and to keep us abiding in Him by faith. Its by faith from beggining to end(Hebrews 11 and 12:2). So I think our bearing forth of righteousness must be by faith. (Galatians 3:2-5) Just that it needs to be genuine faith – faith that leads to repentance, holiness and seeking the Lord 🙂
