"THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS"
We are not in, or even near being in, "The Great Tribulation" period of time. What we are experiencing is what Yahshua termed, "The Beginning of Sorrows"!!! These are two very different time periods, and we need to see what the difference is to understand where we are in the Prophetical Word. Then with that understanding, realize the jeopardy WE ARE ALL IN!!!
Only a very few have caught up with the total picture of what is presented on this site. Most have much disagreement with it. I might ask, why is it that even those who are struggling with what is said here, keep coming back to read more???
I will not debate or argue any point which I declare. This only genders strife, and consequently, nothing but evil fruit. Let me just say that the days ahead will prove out what I have set forth on these pages, and therefore it would be to your benefit to not just reject, but give them consideration. The more time goes by, the more tragic events we are going to see, and in that, be glad you read what you did here.
I will state once again that which is verified by the other articles on this site. The "Great Tribulation" will not begin until:
1. Satan is cast out of heaven. (See "The Book of Revelation, Past, Present, or Future.")
2. Satan cannot be cast out of heaven until Michael "Stands Up."
3. Michael cannot "Stand Up" until "Overcomers" have overcome Satan.
4. The "Overcomers" have not overcome Satan, until they are used by Yahweh to bring to pass Rev. 12:10.
Whether or not you understand this, or agree with it, this is FACT!!! Rejecting, arguing against this, will only prove out to be a lesson in futility.
In Mat. 24:8, Yahshua says, "All these are the beginning of sorrows." All of what "things"? Let's read from the beginning of this discourse, and find out.
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows
Each matter that He lists here are a part of the "Beginning of Sorrows." He does not mention the "Great Tribulation" until much further down the line in His discourse. He is describing the time period just prior to the "Great Tribulation", and that which leads up to it. What are the "signs" that verify we are in that process right now??? Let's take them one at a time.
1. Take heed that no man deceive you.
Never has the "elect" been so deceived as they are in this day. Why is this so??? It is because of the next statement, which has thoroughly come to pass. What is that???
2. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
I was taught for years that the "saying I am Christ", would be people who claimed to be Yahshua. That is NOT what is being said here, and only the programmed mind would think so. He is saying that people will come preaching in HIS Name, saying that HE is the Savior, but will only be doing so to deceive. Yahshua does not say that they will say that THEY are "Christ", but that HE ( "I" ), Yahshua, is the savior Messiah.
He states that MANY will do so, and do so during the beginning of sorrows, and that MANY will be deceived by them. What is meant by the word "many"??? You can look it up in "Strongs" under G4183. It defines as largely, mostly, and in fact means the majority. His first warning concerns not letting any man deceive you. Why? Because most of those preaching in His Name WILL BE DECEIVERS, and in that, most of the people will be DECEIVED BY THEM!!! I ask the "overcomers" who have had there eyes opened, is this not the reality of today?!
These are the first two signs of being in "The Beginning of Sorrows." That is revealing, but not enough to prove we are in that day. What else does He say?
3. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
I need not weary you with explaining this one. If you are an aware person, you already know how many conflicts are going on in the world, and how many are about to erupt.
Some might say, "Well, we have always had wars, that proves nothing." This is true, but never in the history of mankind has it been as it is today. NEVER!
The world is in chaos, and that chaos has finally reached our own land. Nuclear, and bio / chemical weapons are being waved as threats by some 40 countries. Do we really think that they will never be used???
Russia is reportedly missing some sixty + suitcase nuclear bombs. Where are they??? Do we realize what just one set off in our farm belt would do to not only this nation, but to the world??? It would mean immediate FAMINE!
4. and there shall be famines
Already, two thirds of the world's population goes to bed every night hungry. Never has there been so many starving people on this planet. Any judgment that hits our food supply would put us into the same category. What would happen in the mind's of people if suddenly, our grocery stores were empty?
5. and pestilences
What does this word "pestilences" mean? Are we talking about an invasion of bugs? It is Dr. Strongs G3061, and defines as:Plagues, Diseases. Again, I will not weary you with a treatise concerning five major diseases that are killing MILLIONS right now!!! You should already be aware of the toll they are taking, even though you will not read / hear it in the controlled media. I will mention that Alzheimer's is being reported as greatly on the rise. It is NOT Alzheimer's, but the effects of eating meat contaminated by the "Mad Cow" disease. This is being covered over by being labeled Alzheimer's, as the two diseases have very similar symptoms. There would be a mass panic if people understood the jeopardy we are all in, just from this one item titled, "Pestilences."
6. and earthquakes
Never in recorded history has this earth quaked as it is today. We are due for another major one in this nation. If you do not believe me, go to a site that is keeping track of them. It is incredible how much this earth is shaking. It is in the "travail" from the load of "SIN" that it is being forced to carry. Not only will this shaking escalate, but so are all of nature's calamities. This planet is experiencing hurricanes, tornados, erupting volcanoes, floods, extreme heat and cold temperatures, as never before in our recent recorded history.
History proves that we have experienced these matters over the centuries, but NEVER in concert with each other as it is today. Deception is running rampant over the earth. Nations are going mad in their hatreds for each other. Sociopath rulers are determined to rule the earth, and certainly will NOT submit to Satan's NWO. Famine is loosed on this earth, and it will escalate into this nation. Pestilences are killing MILLIONS! Nature is going out of control, and so out of control, scientists are scared silly of what will happen next. We ARE IN "The Beginning of Sorrows", and those sorrows are now reaching into THIS NATION!!!
Why has it now come to us??? Are we not a "Christian Nation", under the blessings of Yahweh??? We are a nation steeped in SIN, and because of it, Yahweh is removing His protective hand from us. That removal means these disasters can hit us anywhere, AND WILL!!! We are all in jeopardy, need to get off of our smug, take Yah for granted thrones, and get on our faces before Him.
Today's message should be, REPENT AMERICA. The problem is, prophecy tells me that this nation, under the ruler ship of the "Spirit of Jezebel", will NOT repent, but wax worse, and in that waxing worse, bring forth the prophesied "Mark of the Beast." We are not being told to "come out of her" for nothing, and if we do not do so, the judgments coming upon this nation are going to eventually catch up with us also. You do not believe me??? It will not be long before this is thoroughly proven to you. How many "Believers" were killed in the World Trade Towers??? And you think that you are immune??? What makes you more righteous than what they might have been?
Yahshua said in Luke 21:35 - 36:
35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Does He know what He is talking about? Does this tell us that our protection is automatic because we are "Christians"? How many are taking His command seriously? What minister is giving this warning to the sheep? How many have prayed this at all, let alone ALWAYS, constantly? Can we expect to escape all of these things if we do not pray this prayer, as advised by the Living Word Himself??? Who should we listen to, men, OR THE KING?!
People, make no mistake about it, we are in the "time of peril." We need to take Yahshua seriously, and pray as He has advised / commanded. At the same time, we must see the Glory that is coming upon those who do so, and do so for they have been called into the "overcoming." I have labored much over the years to get people to see this one. It still has not sunk in to very many. It will in the immediate days ahead.
In Luke 21:28, Yahshua also says:
2And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
We are being brought to our repentance, to our weeping in our seeking Yah for His Kingdom. In that is our deliverance, and this is what He is referring to with this last statement above.
The reason people do not know of what He speaks, is because of two reasons. 1. They do not understand the plan of Yahweh, FROM THE BEGINNING, as so prophesied by ALL of the Prophets. 2. In not having this understanding, then neither do they understand the word "redemption" in this statement by Yahshua. How does it define? Dr. Strong says in G629: Ransomed in full, riddance, salvation, deliverance.
He is saying that for those who will truly follow Him, and in that, do as HE says, the full and complete redemption will be given to them, as promised from the very beginning. It is the being "ransomed in full" by the Sacrifice of Yahshua, from the fall of Adam and Eve, and in that, be given the "Restoration of All Things." It is the "Salvation" in Revelation 12:10, coming to pass for the Overcomers.
People, we re in a very serious day. It is not a time to mess around with Yah. If we understood how serious it is, our whole body would shake. No, we are not in the "Great Tribulation", but we most assuredly ARE in "The Beginning of Sorrows", and it is going to escalate with every passing day unto the time of "The Great Tribulation." Hear me well.
At the same time, for those that will heed the words of Yahshua, it is the greatest day that His people have ever witnessed, or experienced. We are about to enter into the most incredible move of Yahweh, and it is above what most can comprehend. I know they cannot comprehend because of my conversations with so many proves to me that they are not as of yet getting it because they are bombarded with clamoring voices, and the confusion of their own minds. How many are so sure they already "know it all"???
Everyone called to the "overcoming" has been launched upon by the "Devourer." This has been so, for if this DELIVERANCE ever comes to pass, HE IS THROUGH, and his being cast out of heaven will take place. I prophesy unto you that if you continue on in your overcoming, a DELIVERANCE from this Kingdom of Darkness, and all that you have suffered from it, and been grieved by it, will come upon you. Yes, it is even at the door, and NIGH UPON US!!! BELIEVE IT!!! You then will shout HalleluYah for EVERY TRIAL you have gone through, as they will be nothing in comparison to the Glory of Yah we are about to experience.
Whether you comprehend it or not, The Living Word is telling us plainly, that when we see these things BEGIN to come to pass, look up, for our deliverance, our ESCAPE from this world and all of its horrendous calamities is nigh upon us. I end by asking, have we come to the place where these things are beginning to come to pass??? Then obviously, OUR DELIVERANCE IS NIGH!!!
