Re: The Future.
The verse that comes to mind when praying about it is,
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusts in thee.
Sad to say many believers get caught up in end times and it has divided, causing rifts between Christians.
Jesus told those he shared with in Matthew 25: 13 to WATCH.
To watch means,
Give strict attention to, be cautious, active
To take heed lest through remission and indolence some
destructive calamity suddenly overtake one.
How do we do that?
By having a living relationship with Father God, through the Lord Jesus, by the Holy Spirit.
Hearing and obeying the still small voice.
1 Kings 19:12 John 10:27
The period of the Church age lasts from Pentecost till Jesus returns to meet the saints in the air before descending to earth. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17.
The Church is a special people called the bride of Christ, bought with the shed blood of Calvary releasing the grace and mercy of Father God.
Sure during the church age many believers have suffered deep persecution, many have lost their lives as they have stood for the cause of Christ, Hebrews 11 gives an account of what has and is happening, notice verse 35, in the middle of the verse things change, both take place, some delivered, some suffer, nothing has changed.
Also Father God delivered Noah from drowning, Daniel from the lions, even Stephen in Acts was delivered as they stone him, but he was delivered by heading straight to be with Jesus.
Jesus is returning to reign as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, when? We are told we will know the season, not the day or hour. We are in that season where we need to live in the moment in a living relationship with the God Head.
The New World Order is quickly moving the nations through the money collapse to take over, exciting for all who love and walk in obedience to the only true Savior, Jesus.
Father God in no place in Scripture puts his people through his wrath.
Persecution, tribulation, yes, these are at the hand of man.
Wrath is Father God dealing with a world that has turned its back on him.
What man calls the tribulation, the first half is to do with antichrist seeking to gain power, the second half is Father God coming against antichrist and all who seek to follow him, the true body of Christ is gone by then.
Why would Father God destroy his own body?
The true church is his body, does not make sense in any shape or form.
The bottom line of it all is that all we need to do is be ready, then nothing else matters.
Who is out there teaching people how to hear and encouraging them to obey what they hear?
Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which stands for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
