NOTE: The BIBLICAL RULE ALWAYS APPLIES: ANY AND ALL "TIME LINE" EVENTS CONTAINED HEREIN ARE ALWAYS PREDICATED ON THE "80 YEAR" PSALM 90:10 RULE THAT DECLARES THE LONGEVITY OF ANY GIVEN HUMAN GENERATION IS 70 years, the FINAL GENERATION BEGAN 1N 1948:
"ITS' COMING” ... DON'T BE A LIABILITY TO "OTHERS" ... UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE "PREPPING" FOR AND ACT!!!
“Christians” who accuse Believers as “FAITHLESS”, who “prepare” or “prep” for “tribulation”, (times of pressure, distress, trouble) are they themselves “fools” according to biblical scripture.
"The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty", Proverbs 27:12.
As a Believer, once you understand “WHAT YOU ARE PREPPING FOR”, then you will “PREP”. "By FAITH Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved" … Hebrews 11:7.
The non-believer “preps in fear” of what is coming in order to prolong their wretched carnal lives, the “only life” they know.
A Believer understands that this “world” is NOT their destiny and prepares for what comes in order to survive just as “long as it takes” to participate in the final harvest of souls.
A believer understands that “survival” is a temporary means to an “eternal end in mind”.
A Believer is “FOCUSED" on the "eternal objective" of “gain for the Kingdom of God”.
A carnal, worldly man concentrates on "desperate survival" for "personal gain and preservation".
YOUR PERSPECTIVE IS SKEWED BY WHAT MATTERS TO YOU! We "PREP" to survive as the final witnesses of YESHUA!!!
Faithlessness “DOES NOTHING”, James 2:14-26.
Don't be a fool; do not expect relief from your local “church”, most of who do not prepare their congregations for what comes.
Do not expect relief from armed apostate prepper millionaires of the likes of Osteen, Warren and Copeland, whose lavish lifestyles have "stashed" hordes of supplies for themselves and their immediate families.
Do NOT expect your own pastor to feed you IF he has not heeded the warnings of the prophets over the past five years!!! YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN when CHAOS STRIKES the PLANET!
Will YOU be a liability or will you be an asset to the Kingdom of God?
YOU MUST PREPARE YOURSELF for about 6 months of intense witnessing that will climax with the last soul who will repent during the "church age" does so, followed by the Rapture.
But they mocked God's messengers, despised his words and scoffed at his prophets until the wrath of the LORD was aroused against his people and there was no remedy. 2 Chronicles 36:16.
Therefore, disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy. Proverbs 6:15.
Will not your creditors suddenly arise? Will they not wake up and make you tremble? Then you will become their prey. Habakkuk 2:7.
"SILENCE IN HEAVEN" WILL BE YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE FINAL HARVEST of the "CHURCH AGE ... And a STAR FALLS, Rev 8.
"THIS GENERATION" - NOW!!! There's a reference to "one hour" in the book of Revelation 17:12. There is a reference to about 1/2 hour.
If we see "one hour" in scripture, and "half an hour" in another scripture of the same book, it seems reasonable to conclude that the two increments of time are identifiable.
In this case I propose that one hour represents one year of anti-Christ rise to power supported by 10 global leaders. And the "space of about one half hour" is a period of ABOUT SIX MONTHS.
The Silence of "about 1/2 hour in Heaven is a response of all "watching" to the final harvest of souls occurring on the earth during the events of the opened sixth seal. There will be a period of about six (6) months of intense harvest of souls during this period. "There was silence for a space of about a half an hour (in heaven)".
The actual Hebrew word used here - hemiorion - and it does not occur elsewhere in the New Testament. It is correctly translated as "half an hour"; It is rather interesting that THE ONLY place in the entire bible that the Greek word is used is in this verse.
Psalm 90:10 "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; (70) and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, (80) yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. (2028 Maximus).
1) Immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And THEN shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall ALL THE TRIBES of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Note: UNLIKE THE "RAPTURE", THIS EVENT IS WITNESSED BY EVERY HUMAN BEING ON THE PLANET.
2) "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the FOUR WINDS, FROM ONE END OF "HEAVEN" TO THE OTHER".
Note: UNLIKE THE "RAPTURE" WHERE THE "COLLECTION OF THE "SAVED" IS HARVEST FROM THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE "EARTH", THIS EVENT IS A COLLECTION OF THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY WITH THE LORD IN "HEAVEN" AND WHO RETURN PHYSICALLY WITH HIM TO EARTH.
In others words, this specific description in Matthew 24 is NOT describing the Rapture, but rather the SECOND COMING of Christ, a critical matter since the Church will be Raptured prior to the Bowls of wrath which will be finished before the Second Coming.
3) "This generation" is the generation that witnesses? The restoration of Israel in 1948. Psalm 90:10 "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; (70) and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, (80) yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. (2028 Maximus).
Matthew 24:34-36King James Version (KJV)
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
The Final Heptad scenario is likely, perhaps probable as the Word specifically allows for the "count", providing the additional, "if by reason of strength, fourscore" which would bring this generation to the year 2028. I do believe that this allowable variance as specified by Psalm 90:10 will be "contingent" on mankind "responds" to the upcoming events of "shaking" that is soon coming.
During this time of shaking, as long as men continue to REPENT, the years, "by strength" will be justified in His sight and His continued "longsuffering" with mankind will persist.
Once humanity reaches the "moment" when there is no longer one more additional man on earth who will repent and turn to Him, (as the days of Lot and Noah), this moment of "soulakis-maximus" will "complete the roster" and the dispensation of the "Church age" will immediately terminate by way of "Rapture", (the evacuation of Christians), moving Believers out of the way of His bowls of wrath.
I do believe that there will be the greatest harvest of souls during this time of shaking; however, knowing carnal human nature, I am persuaded that the duration of "THIS generation" is likely to terminate sooner rather than the latter.
Men's understanding is limited to "finite" elements of life. Even now we see that men have not understood that the condition of the world's economic pending implosion is NOT an economic issue but rather a spiritual issue which has brought mankind to this moment of judgment.
While the Nation will focus on the presidential election of the "man" who will save the economy, without recognition of WHY the USA is facing impending judgment, Judgment comes quickly.
This judgment will be the catalyst that causes men to consider their own individual mortality, many will repent, most will not. This same process will take place in all nations. Time is short, these final hours will be highlighted by participating in the final gleaning global harvest, and then the end comes.
"This Gospel will be preached to Everyman, and then the end will come". Souls are the focus of Him and must be our focus, thus "hastening" the coming of the Day of the Lord.
My position since 1989 is that the next seal to open is the SIXTH thus will continue to fulfill the remainder of the "fifth seal" including the "war against the saints" which has escalated under the "man of lawlessness" and will climax at the opening of the sixth seal.
I believe and have shared that the events of the sixth seal, which are about to occur will provide a six month window to participate in the global gleaning harvest of souls, as the events of the sixth seal will literally "ROCK THE WORLD"!!!.
Men will have two (2) responses to this global shaking. Repent or Curse God.
This last harvest of the "Church age" will end on the very day that the very last man, who will .... repents and turns to the Lord and only God Himself knows that moment, (day and hour), since He alone knows that heart of all men.
So we must prepare NOW for the events of the sixth seal:
" I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.
They called to the mountains and the rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it? Revelation 6:12-17.
I preface the dispensation of the "church age" in order to differentiate the souls that will be saved (during the Great tribulation), the last "3.5 years". Thus, there must be a "closing" of this present age in order for the "next", a short lived Dominion of darkness upon earth, preceding the Second Coming.
IF Judgment is contingent upon "no more repentant souls" during the Church age, such as it was in the case of Lot and Noah, then the Words of Jesus regarding His return exactly parallel the days of Lot and Noah should be precise and clear.
We know "other" conditions exited in the days of Noah, nephilim etc, however the condition of "continually evil" would reference a condition when no more men would repent, of course this is the exact argument regarding Abraham and God's Q&A session.
Yes there will be "others" saved after the Rapture, however the Church will be "with Him" during this time of unparalleled tribulation upon earth.
"For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.
"Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. "Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him." Matthew 24:21-23.
"Sooner rather than later". It is probable that the horror of what is about to occur world-wide will be "intolerable" for "flesh" to survive for a "sustained period" to the "bitter end", therefore it is likely that the "fourscore" will never be achieved when all is "said and done".
