ALLAH, AND THE FALSE RELIGION OF ISLAM



Picture


By Pastor Mike Taylor
"Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you." (Isaiah 41:24)
In these last days of man's attempt to rule this world, God has laid out a challenge to anyone claiming to be a god. Since there is only One God and His Name is Jehovah or YAHWEH, God almighty proclaims in His Word that if there be any other god, then declare the end from the beginning. His challenge is to predict the future.
"Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come." (Isaiah 41:21-22)
Prophecy is only known to God the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. The bible is 27% prophecy and every point that has been fulfilled in history was foretold in your bible with 100% accuracy. Our God knows what will happen before the world was formed. Those that still need to be fulfilled, will come to pass as the God that formed this universe and all that is in it, has willed it and foresaw it's outcome. The false religion of Islam and their god, Allah, knows nothing.
Those that remain unfulfilled are in complete harmony with current secularist futurist predictions. That is to say, events relied on by secular forecasters to develop long-term geopolitical or environmental trends suggest the same outcomes predicted by Scripture. God has shown us the future and it is in His Word..your bible.
A FEW EXAMPLES
Man sees unrest and wars that virtually cover our planet in a hop scotch form of unrest and upheaval. The Bible predicted wars and rumors of wars in the last days. The elite in Washington predicts a generational war with Islam and the Arab nations.
The bible predicts unusual weather patterns and environmental disasters. Weather forecasters have reported nine of the hottest years on record since 1995 and will continue for the unforeseeable future. Earthquakes have increased 400% in the last 10-20 years and volcanoes long thought to be dormant have once again come alive all over the planet.
The Bible has predicted there will be signs in the sun, the moon and the stars. NASA predicts that there will be shift in the 11 year solar cycles that will produce increasing hotter temperatures on the surface of the earth.
The bible predicts that the sun will someday scorch men with painful sores:
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. (Revelation 16:9)
NASA says changes in the ozone layers and increasing ultraviolet light is responsible for most skin cancers.
God Himself issues a challenge to other so-called 'gods' to predict the future:
"Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come." (Isaiah 41:21-22)
Only our God, the King of the Universe is omniscient and omniprescent and knows what will happen and when it will happen. God not only knows the future, but the circumstances that will bring it to pass.


Our God continues to challenge the false religions of this world. Satan can know some of the details, as he will cause them to happen, but he won't know everything, as he can't predict the future.
The best he can do is detail what he has planned in advance to one of his 'prophets'. He doesn't know how those plans will turn out. He had a plan to defeat Jesus by having Him killed by His Chosen People. Had he known the outcome, he would have planned things differently:
"Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." (1st Corinthians 2:8)


Almighty God issues His challenge, because He knows that there are NO other gods, but the God of heaven and earth. He alone is God and it stands to reason that He is able to accuarately predict the future. But man led by Satan is determined to be a “god unto himself”...


ISLAM, A FALSE RELIGION WITH A FALSE GOD


"Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you." (Isaiah 41:24)
Although Islam does profess a type of prophecy that they say will happen, they take their predictions from what is said in the bible and twist them to the own end.
Islamic predictions of a coming messiah type figure riding on a white horse is taken from Revelation 6:3,
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”
They predict this will be the Mahdi, but as Christians we know that the Bible is identifying the coming Anti-Christ that will come with smooth words to conquer by deceit. Islam predicts that this coming “mahdi” will lead a vast conquering Islamic army to conquer the world by the sword.
There was no predictions or prophecy of the coming of Mohammed, but the “twelvers” of Shia Islam claim that the Mahdi has remained alive since 860 A.D., but Mohammed is as dead as anybody else.
Islam predicts that the returning Mahdi will line up with their version of Jesus (Isa) and subdue the whole earth for Islam. They don't believe that Jesus is the Son of God, but a prophet of God, and not God Himself. In this coming “war” Isa and the Mahdi will kill 1/3 of all mankind and is a hijacking of Revelation's passages that even Satan can read the prophecies of God written by John the Apostle.
Their version lines up with the Anti-Christ and the false prophet. Islam proclaims that this Mahdi and Isa will place a mark in the forehead of it's warriors and followers, as the Bible proclaims the Beast will require a mark on the foreheads, or in their right hand. Coincidence?
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of thebeast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:7)
THE RISE OF ISLAM
Forty years ago, you never heard of Islam, as it was assigned to the backward nations of the Middle East and Indonesia. Theirs was a culture and way of life right out of the 6th Century with all it's backward ways. Islam was not a threat to the West or for that matter our Christian way of life. But all that changed starting in 1979 with the overthrow of the Shah of Iran by the Mullahs, led by Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeinin, the leader of the revolution, supported by various  leftist and Islamic organizations and Iranian student movements. From that point, with the kidnapping of our American citizens as hostages, that then POTUS Carter was ill equipped to deal with, a declaration of war was declard and waged by the rising Islamic nation led by Iran.
It has now been 37 years since that “silent” war erupted and it has been getting louder with each passing year. All over the world, Islam is the fastest growing “religion” that is 1 billion + and growing stronger with new converts even in the once great Christian nation of the U.S.A.
As the home of the brave, land of the free becomes more steeped in apostacy, Islam continues to fill the void left by those who abandoned and forsaken the God of heaven.
DID GOD RAISE UP A LEADER OF JUDGMENT?
We now have a “leader” (and I use that tongue in cheek) who on camera professes his form of “christianity” but behind the scenes praises Islam and promotes its religious idealogy whenever he gets a chance. Many believe, as I do, that he is a closest Muslim, himself. Christianity of those who follow Jesus Christ are regarded as a danger to modern society, by hate speech, ridicule and sometimes even prosecution for their once honored beliefs in the One true God that this nation was founded upon and our motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” was held in high esteem.
IN the past, I have had little hope of this nation rising out of the apostacy that has engulfed her. On our borders, illegal immigration has become rampant, and possible terrorists, even such as ISIS, may have infiltrated our country and are planning attacks, all in the name of “Allah”. Many have already taken place, in San Bernadino, Orlando, and even in Oklahoma. More are sure to come...unless?
I see the news reports, of attacks that are growing from “migrants” that have come from countries bent on our destruction and this “idiot in chief” who promotes their repatritation into this country, and a Democratic candidate that would increase that amount 500% if we are so unfortunate to have her as our next POTUS. Illegal immigration and the growing terrorist risk that confront our country are number one on the minds of most Americans that truly have their head above ground and not stuck in the sand and ignoring what is happening.
One candidate wants to build a wall on our southern border and I say “build that wall”. Rid this country of the scourge that has infiltrated it in the last 10 years and remove the threat to our freedoms and our way of life. He wants to remove illegal immigrants who have come here illegally and break our laws. We should do as the Netherlands has done and remove all Muslims and tear down all Mosques and ban Sharia law that is anathema to our Constitution and our way of life, as this is war on our soil and we should own up to it......Further, one nominee wants to “make America great again” and make her first in dealing with other nations. He says, “Put America first”.
I don't want to get political, but America is at a breaking point. Either she will rise out of these ashes with a leader who has his head on straight and sees the danger, or be lulled to sleep by someone who thinks that there are no problems in this country and wants more of the same of the last 8 years...God forbid!!
This coming election is pivotal. We will continue to be a nation of laws, and God will give us a leader who will pull this nation out of her stupor, or, as a nation, we have been judged as wanting, and God's judgment is about to fall on this land we have grown up in from sea to shining sea, and its inevitable implosion into utter chaos. I know it is in God's hands and His plan for the end of man's rule will come to pass, no matter what we wish.
THE COMING ANTI-CHRIST
IN the past, I have made an hypothesis that the coming Anti-Christ will be Muslim. If he comes from the Middle East, and called the Assyrian, we have a high probablity that this man is indeed Muslim. Of course, there are many problems that Israel will face, should this man be of such a religion...but what does the Bible say about this man?
And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” (Daniel 8:23)
But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.” (Daniel 11:38)
And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:25)


Whether this man proclaims a false Christianity, or believes and follows the war-like ideology of Islam, the bible says he will magnify his own name above all....He will abandon the God of the Bible, or the false god, Allah for himself.


ISLAM, THE TERROR OF THE NATIONS
Is the Anti-Christ Islamic? Is the supposed coming of the 12th Imam, the Anti-Christ.? Understand that Satan is a powerful deceiver. He relishes deceiving mankind with a parallel false religion that mirrors God’s way and His salvation message. Could Islam be that false message, with its false god and its false messiah? Some believe that Islam will be defeated in the battle of Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38& 39, but it would do well as a watchful Christian to keep an eye on Islam prior to these battles, as Islam is the antithesis of all that is Holy and ordained by our Almighty God, Jehovah or Yahweh…the great I AM, THAT I AM. Paul spoke of this man called the Anti-Christ and his false religion:

“The coming of the lawless one  (the Anti-Christ) is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” II Thessalonians 2:9-12.


IRAN IS AGAIN LEADING IN THE NEWS
It has been almost 40 years since Iran stuck their slimey head above the political landscape and has been almost daily the center of Islamic barbarism. From the time of 9/11 and the World Trade Center, the nation of America has dealt with the ideology of Islam and Iran has become the focal point of all that Islam stands for in their crusade for conquest and world domination.
I was horrified to learn that this so called Iran Nuclear Deal, was nothing but a sham by our current POTUS and gives Iran license to pursue their goal of becoming a nuclear power. For the last 30 years, Iran has been secretly planning on conquest and developing a nuclear weapon and this administration has given them the green light, and wrapped the deal in a ribbon with a big red bow.
Their not so hidden agenda is to be the hegemony power in the Middle East and plans to destroy Israel is priority #1 on their list. The fulfilling of Ezekiel 38 & 39 are on our doorstep and awaits for its prophetic completion. Those who believe your bible, know that the God of heaven will defend Israel with a vengeance and fury that will be devastating to this coalition led by Iran when they come down to Israel. I believe that Islam will be dealt a major blow when 5/6 of this invading army is defeated by God Himself on the mountains of Israel. But know that Islam will not be totally defeated, in my humble opinion.


THE UNVEILING OF THE ANTI-CHRIST
I'm a firm believer that what is holding back the total onslaught of Islam and the rise of the Anti-Christ is the U.S.A standing in it's way. That's why this election is so important. Either the unveiling of the Anti-Christ will come shortly in the near future, or be delayed because American becomes stronger by being led by a patriot that loves this country. If Islam is the underlying “religion” of the man of sin, then it is being held in check by One all powerful Force, God's Holy Spirit, which is the essence of His power on earth.


If , and I make that with all sincerity, this nation falls into further apostacy and God's judgment falls on this land, then the unveiling of the Anti-Christ, could be coming sooner than later. But this nation with it's large Christian population could suspend judgment on this nation, (although it will come on the whole world) for a season. I am reminded of II Chronicles:
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.” (II Chronicles 7:4)
God is in control. He sees the end from the beginning. He sees the future of this country and it's rise, or it's fall. He sees the false religion of Islam and will judge her and her leader harshly with fire and brimstone in their ultimate defeat. He will finally judge the nations, the Anti-Christ and his false prophet in the lake of fire. The only thing that stands firmly in Satan's path to complete destruction of this world, are Christians who pray and hold fast to the teachings of the Bible. If this nation does not turn back to God, then God will bring judgment on this nation, but not before removing all restraint that is holding back that judgment:
6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” (II Thessalonians 2:6-10)


It all comes down to God knows the future...we are watching and praying for His will to be done. When God removes the Restrainer (God's Holy Spirit), God will also remove His people, the Church at that time. It will be sooner, or it will be later. It doesn't bother me who will be elected this time around. I will do my civic duty and vote my conscious, but whoever is elected, it will hasten or slow the removal of God's Church and the revealing of the Anti-Christ. Whether he be Muslim, false christianity, or finally atheist in the end, does not matter to those who are born of the blood and the water of Jesus Christ. The blood from being covered by His atonement death on the cross, and the water from being baptized and embracing that we have died to the former lives we had, and we live anew to God in our bodies...Till He Comes.
WHERE TO DO YOU STAND?
If you have been following the news and see that the world is even a more dangerous place than you can ever remember, what will you do when all hell breaks loose and the end of this age is upon us...not in your head, but for real!!. Will you wake up one day and find millions gone and haven't a clue to what has happened? I tell you what has happened before it happens for real. God has removed His Church and you are shackled with the knowledge that the Tribulation will start on Day 1 of God removing His church from this planet.
Will you submit to the religion of the Anti-Christ, or Islam, and take whatever that mark is planted on your forehead and in your right hand? What will you do, what will you think, and where will be your faith be? Will it be in men, or in God? Men will fail you, but God never will. Like I said, this election is pivotable for the near future. We will, as a nation, go down in flames, or rise up for a season until Jesus comes and removes His Bride from this earth. God knows the future. He is God and He has given us ample warning of the nearness of the hour of the soon coming of His Son, Jesus Christ. It could be this fall...it's could be next year...it could be before I finish this message. But make no mistake, God knows when that time is up...we can only see the season. Jesus warned us in Matthew 24 what the signs would be. Would you not agree that they are all around us?...the times are shouting at each of us, growing more fervent in their attempt to bring us to repentance and choose His Son while there is still time.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up yourheads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)
We have been seeing these signs for a number of years, since the creation of Israel as a nation in 1948. That generation will not pass away till all things be fulfilled..Men have tried to pinpoint the coming of Jesus, but God said that we will know the season, and we will know the length of a generation. It's in your bible...70 years, and 80 by strength. We are near the end of that generation. Jesus could come and if you're not ready, will catch you by surprise and flat footed. Don't let that happen. Make Jesus your Savior right now..
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
This is pastor Mike Taylor, praying you accept Jesus as your Savior today..if you need prayer, counseling, or just a listening ear, email me at realteam1999@sbcglobal.net. God bless you all,

TILL WE MEET AT JESUS FEET.

GOD'S PROTECTION FOR THE END TIMES




by Pastor Mike Taylor

Psalm 91:1  "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Romans8: 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

1st Peter 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator."

Anxiety is building in this nation, and for that matter, all over the world. Fear grips the average human being, as they see events that they have no control over. It doesn't matter if it's in Greece, Spain, Portugal in the EU or right here in the USA, men are fearful. They know that this is an unprecedented time of turmoil and signs of impending doom. Men are behaving like animals and evil grows exponentially, as we grow closer and closer to the end of this age as we witnessed crimes of unspeakable horror in the recent news coverage of the rampage of demonic possessed individuals, who executed the innocent in schools, theaters, and shopping malls. The culture has gone mad.

The powers that be look for a culprit to blame. They blame guns, they blame the social haters, and they blame those that hold onto those guns and their religion, namely Christian Conservatives. They wish to infringe on our Constitutionally given rights that were written by men who feared God, and knew that any government, even theirs that they were forming could become despotic. 


We see the sin of homosexuality with it's push for same sex marriage making strides for public approval. We continue to see abortion unabated and Planned Parenthood boasting that they terminated the life of another baby, every 94 seconds last year.
WE see a government that has grown corrupt, and I pray the present administration at least slows down the slide of this nation into chaos and oblivion. Congress has become impotent to stay the powers who are moving this country into a more Socialistic-Communistic form of a New World Order.

It was reported that the brainiacs in Washington have come up with a great idea of minting a trillion dollar platinum coin, so “poof”, no more debt. Great idea, except it raising inflation by an untold percentage and gives our line of credit to participate in the global economy as being “funny money.”

We could go on and on mentioning the symptoms of the economic collaspe, as well as the societal collapse of this nation and reaching all around the world of natons having the exact same problems, just more of them. But that is in an other sermon you can read on this site. But the point here is,there is a Blood Red Moon Rising over the earth. We saw that in not too distant past, and now we see signs that point to a possible fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets this fall. I see that we will see a "total eclipse" of the sun that will only be for the central USA. It has never happened before. Is it a sign of foreboding of the coming wrath of God? Will it begin to happen this fall? We don't know, but this sign of the eclipse is but another sign in the heavens that 'something" big is about to happen...we just pray and watch.

MAKE YOUR FOUNDATION THE “ROCK”

It's a exciting time to live in, but anxiety producing for those who don't have a firm foundation on where their strength lies. I have brothers and sisters who email me with searching questions on how to prepare for what is coming. I am a firm believer and have always been that God allows nothing to come against His chosen children, the church, a people taken for His name, unless is for their benefit and their spiritual maturity. I have also come to believe that God is not interested in our comfort, but in our being ready to reign and rule with Jesus Christ for a 1000 years, and on into eternity. When the cares of this life seem to weigh in on any of us, and I'm not immune, I counsel my congregation to look to the Bible for their strength and their foundation of coping. I have been telling each of them, when things get rough around your community, your town, or your state, then it is a time to grab onto the promises of God and remind Him of those promises. OH, He knows what He promised, but He wants to hear that you believe that He will do what He said. Inspiration and strength has always been drawn from two chapters in the bible for me, in particular, but not exclusive, as the whole bible is designed to encourage and to lead us into righteous living, but for me Psalm 91 and Romans chapter 8, have special promises of protection and looking forward to our heavenly home. Let's take a moment to draw strength from these two chapters that have distinct promises of divine protection and Christian hope for a glorious future. Let us take a few verses from each, but I encourage you to read these chapters prayerfully and without doubt. I ask that you claim those promises, as God cannot lie. He just wants you to reach out to Him and draw nigh to Him.

Psalm 91:2 "I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday."





Just as a hen gathers her chicks during a storm, or for protection against terrors surrounding them, our Father wishes to draw us unto Himself and protect us. Terror that is all around us (ie). Islam terrorist, Washington bureaucrats, Obamacare, and even widening debt and deficit spending, not to mention a society in decay, we have no need to be afraid. Why? God is in control and His Word will not come back to Him void. He said it, it will be done!

MATTHEW HENRY SPEAKS ON PSALM 91

Matthew Henry has a great commentary on Psalm 91, and I would like to share it with you.

"He that by faith chooses God for his protector, shall find all in him that he needs or can desire. And those who have found the comfort of making the Lord their refuge, cannot but desire that others may do so. The spiritual life is protected by Divine grace from the temptations of Satan, which are as the snares of the fowler, and from the contagion of sin, which is a noisome pestilence. Great security is promised to believers in the midst of danger. Wisdom shall keep them from being afraid without cause, and faith shall keep them from being unduly afraid. Whatever is done, our heavenly Father's will is done; and we have no reason to fear. God's people shall see, not only God's promises fulfilled, but his threatenings. Then let sinners come unto the Lord upon his mercy-seat, through the Redeemer's name; and encourage others to trust in him also."

AS you read this marvelous chapter of God's Word, it should give you hope that you are not alone, but He walks right there with you. You become a little fearful with the latest report of a disaster or a shooting, or crime in your area, open your bible and read this chapter and claim it in it's promised message. I leave my family bible open at all times to this chapter, to remind God that I trust His Word, and His protection at any time. The bible is full of promises that tell the truth about God's protection to the true believer. Many Chrisitians wring their hands and wonder what is coming down the pike for us all. But you know what? It doesn't matter, as He will prepare you for whatever comes. This side of the tribulation, we could see many natural disasters in this country of the USA, as it's happening all over the world. Many people will die, as many have already died. Some needlessly, but some because they have shaken their fist at God and God just might have removed His hand of protection from them and allowed them to go their own way and their demise was chance and circumstance. Liberal thinkers who don't need God, have no one to turn to when the times get rough, unless they repent of their sinful deeds. But not so with the believer in Jesus Christ. Going on in this same chapter of Psalms, the Psalmist writes a promise given to a child of God.

7 "A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

 9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling."

Wow, has it ever made you wonder why evil is all around you, but it hasn't touched your life? How many stories could I print of testimonies of men and women in harm's way were spared because they called out to God? But my brother and sister, there is a small catch to that protection. See Verse 1 of this chapter that started this sermon. You must be right next to His altar, under His shadow, under His wings, and staying close to God. You can't be out willy nilly living the life of this world, feeding your flesh with diverse pleasures, as that is a sure invitation for God to reprimand you and allow evil to enter your life. But it doesnt have to be so. God wishes to be with you in times of trial and even persecution.

 11 "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation."

Whatever happens, nothing shall hurt the believer; though trouble and affliction befall, it shall come, not for his hurt, but for good, though for the present it be not joyous but grievous. Those who rightly know God, will set their love upon him. They, by prayer constantly call upon him. His promise is that he will in due time deliver the believer out of trouble, and in the mean time be with him in trouble. The Lord will manage all his worldly concerns, and preserve his life on earth, so long as it shall be good for him. For encouragement in this he looks unto Jesus. He shall live long enough; till he has done the work he was sent into this world for, and is ready for heaven. Who would wish to live a day longer than God has some work to do, either by him or upon him? A man may die young, yet be satisfied with living. But a wicked man is not satisfied even with long life. At length the believer's conflict ends; he has done for ever with trouble, sin, and temptation.


Did you catch that? Nothing can come against us, unless God allows it for our personal growth in spirit and maturity within His coming Kingdom. The devil can't touch us if we are within His protective circle, which is right up against His altar, His Throne. He may test our metal, but He will not allow anything to adversely effect us that He doesn't know that will make us stronger in Him.

My brothers and sisters, what do we have to fear? Nothing is the answer. Getting back to a little bit of the anxiety that people email me about. Who do you trust? We can't trust our government any more. We can't trust our elected officials or political parties, not even the Tea Party. We can't trust people in general, especially if you get into the big cities. Men have seem to become more ferocious in this desire to inflict pain and lash out at others. Was a time you could hitch hike down the interstate, which I never encouraged even my brother who thought it was a great way to travel, but times have changed. You don't hitchhike, and you don't pick up hitchhikers. Society has changed and not for the better. There is a large number of things you just don't do anymore, because society has become corrupt in general and your own unsaved neighbor will sell you for a ten bucks. That's a sad commentary, but society has proven it to be so. The love for one another has grown cold. Only the True Believer support one another in love and genuine concern for their good.

A GLORIOUS FUTURE JUST OVER THE HORIZON


But we have a glorious promise that is found in Romans chapter 8 and the most favorite part of that chapter is from verse 28 to the end of the chapter. Can you not see that we have nothing to fear? Reread the opening verses of this sermon and see that God only allows good to come to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. Read the whole chapter, but focus in on the last of this chapter..Look at v. 31-32,

31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all thing."


He will give us all things, whatsoever we ask believing, He will do it if being in our best interest and in His divine Will. He knows what is good for us, will protect us, and what will make us grow as Christian people. He then ends the chapter will a powerful promise, that proves that we will never be alone in this life, as long as we stay close to Him.

 38 "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Again, I ask you, what have we to fear? Nothing! God will lead us into green pastures, as the Psalmist wrote in chapter 23.

 23 "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. (we lack for nothing due to His Goodness)

 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.( He blesses us with needs for our everyday lives)

 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. (He is forever by our sides)

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. (even though trouble is afflicting us, He will bring us through it and we will be better for it)

 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. (We cannot contain the blessings of God)

 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." ( the blessing of the Lord are plentiful until He brings us home to receive a greater reward for being steadfast and faithful)

PROMISES NOT MADE TO THE WORLD


Now my reader, I must deal with the negative side of not following what I've outlined up to now. In past sermons, I have ventured into the demise of our country, as we have gone the way of Sodom and Gommarrah and certain destruction will come down on our heads, or God would have to apologize to Sodom for bringing down fire and brimstone about them. As the world grows worse and worse, and our home is on the horizon and we wait for the trumpet sound and Jesus to say “Come up here,” we may see the symptoms of judgment beginning to come to pass on this nation and all nations around the world. We can expect more “accidents”, more natural disasters, more crime, and more moral and economic woes coming fast and furious. These break neck events will make men's hearts very anxious, but they haven't seen anything yet! God told us though the apostle John what is coming upon mankind, when the wrath of God is poured out on the rebellious nations. But never fear, my brethren, God has not appointed us to wrath...He said so in 1st Thessalonians

 5:9 " For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

5:10  Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him."

This is a clear indication of the church being removed out of the way, before God's wrath is released on this earth in all earnest. We may see, and it is not revealed how much we will see, but we WILL NOT see the destruction of 2/3 of every living thing that grows on this planet....that's every tree, green grass, sea creatures and the water they live in, animals, and including 2/3 of mankind to the tune of 6 billion people slaughtered in divine judgment. The horrific depiction of the carnage would make any sane man's hair stand up on the back of his neck and head. Evil will reign supreme on this earth for 7 short years with the worst of the evil in the last 3.5 years, known as the Great Tribulation. Men, women and children will die by the thousands into the millions in a very short time.

Can you image the pain and suffering endured by mankind during those awful years? What's going on now will look like a picnic compared to that time. Some of the graphics descriptions of men's pain and suffering include being stung by demons repeatedly for 5 months begging to die, but they cannot. Another sign is great sores that come upon men who have the mark of the beast on their foreheads Revelation 16:11,

  " and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done. ,"

Or how about the sun scorching men with great heat. Of course great heat will produce great famine, as everything will die. But men will curse God, instead of repenting of this wickedness.

Revelation 16:9, "And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory."

Great hailstones raining down on the earth that weigh upwards of 100# each...unheard of? Get ready, Revelation 16:21,

"From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible."


You want to get yourself in a funk, and totally depressed, read the  16th chapter of Revelation. This imagery is easy to understand and is not symbolism at all, but will be a literal event to come to all who dwell upon the earth in wickedness. As had been written, the time of the end is close at hand, when I say the end, I mean the end of the age of Grace. God's grace will have run out. God's people have suddenly vanished from the face of the earth. Don't believe it? Wait around, should you be so foolish, I guarantee that you will, as the bible has been 100% accurate into modern times. There is no reason to believe that the events depicted in Revelation will not be fulfilled in their entirety. Woe to you if you are still here.

Revelation,

12 "And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!"

As my sister, Donna Wasson wrote recently, “Are you in, or are you out?”. You ask how do I get in? Oh, that's easy. All it takes is faith and repentance. Faith in what? John 3:16-18,

16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

Realize that you are a sinner, as it is written, Romans,

23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Accept His free offer of grace and mercy, Ephesians 2,

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast."

God through His Son is offering you the keys to eternal life, the golden ring on the merry-go round...reach and out and take it. It's entirely free. All you have to do is admit you need it, and Him. Believe He died for you and for me and was raised to life and lives today and is coming back for His people chosen for His name. When this happens then my friend, if you do not possess the “golden ring” of Jesus Christ, the Tribulation is your reward of 7 years of literal hell on earth...not meant to scare, but to warn you of your condition and the remedy. Because, if you are sensitive to the times that are coming upon us, you know within your mind and you heart, that a Blood Moon has Risen and a full eclipse coming, which could be full of the wrath of God. It's that dread you feel within your spirit, that pulls within your mind and threatens to send you into despair and madness. I beseech you, to present yourself to Christ a broken and contrite heart asking, no pleading for forgiveness. And you know what, He will grant the request for all eternity.

BLOOD MOON RISING AND THE DAY OF THE LORD




By Pastor Mike Taylor

“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. {2:31} The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day ofthe LORD come”. Joel 2:30-31

This is part II completing my sermon on “No Man Knoweth the Day or Hour” and if you have not read the first part, you must make that the foundation to be built upon to understand this teaching presented here. I invite you to read the first part found on this site to prepare your understanding.  In the first part, we established that Jesus was talking about a coming day that could point to the time of His coming to earth to take His church home. It was an “idiom” that any Jewish man living at the time would recognize immediately what Jesus was talking about. When Jesus said these words: Matthew 24,

{24:36} "But of that day and hour knoweth no [man,] no,not the angels of heaven, but my Father only". (no man knoweth the day or the hour)

This “idiom” that Jesus was speaking of was also spoken of ONLY one day on the Hebraic calendar known as the Feast of  Trumpets. As we studied the connection that Jesus spoke of to the God appointed times of His plan for mankind and the prophetic rehearsals that signaled His first coming, death and resurrection, it also points to His second coming at the end of the age of grace for His church on the appointed days. It would be logical and scriptural to assume that if God used these times for the redemption plan of salvation to be completed on the exact days of these feast days made by God, then knowing God does not do anything by happen stance, we can look to the feast that are still waiting to be fulfilled that are observed in the fall with the first of these days known as “the Feast of Trumpets” also known as the “return of the King”.

But moving on to what I would like to focus on in this part of the sermon, is there anything that can be correlated to this Feast Day that would give us pause and wonder, could this be the day? Word of caution is needed here. I am no Harold Camping, and am not so impudent to say that God has told me the exact day of His return. No, we look to the scriptures to let the Word give us meaning to the coming days, as we see them approaching. And as I cautioned last time, take these words and line them up to your bible and as a good Berean, see if these things be true and judge for  yourself. “Don’t believe me, believe your bible” is exactly what I want each of us to do. There will be mockers, and people who say that this has no meaning except it be seen from Israel and proclaimed by a Rabbi. I am aware that Israel is the center of prophecy, but God gave all of His people warning of His closeness of returning to gather His people and it doesn’t take a Rabbi in Israel to “sanctify” the Word of  God that all will understand through the direction of the Holy Spirit, as they are foolishness to the carnal man, but wisdom to us who are saved by grace, as they a spiritually discerned.

BLOOD MOON TETRADS


Luke {21:25} "And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; {21:26} Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken".

Here Luke records the words of our Lord, when the disciples came to Him and asked when the end of the age would happen and signs of His coming. What are these signs Jesus was speaking of and do they have any significance to what we are studying? We will see that may be just the case. But notice further on in the chapter Jesus said this to them, and to us:

{21:34} "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. {21:35} For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. {21:36} Watch 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."


We are to be ever alert and watchful, as the signs of His appearing will be all around us. Jesus alerted us that there will be signs in the heavens that were present that announced His first visitation, and will there be signs that will be present on His second coming at the end of the age of grace? Matthew 16:

"He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, [It will be] fair weather: for the sky is red.
{16:3} And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not [discern] the signs of the times?"

As it was in the beginning found in Genesis chapter 1 that the sun, moon and stars would be signs in the heavens for season, signs, and years:
{1:14} "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:"


....So it will be in the end, that God will use His creation to signal to His people the signs of His coming and the end of the age.
Let us focus for a moment on the opening scripture that is quoted from Joel. Joel writes that the sun will be “darkened”. Joel restates this very thing in a following verse in the 3rd chapter,
{3:15} "The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining."

Looking to the Strong’s Concordance, we look up the meaning of these words meaning darkened, or darkness. We find in one of the verses the Hebrew word chosehek, Strongs #2822 means the dark, darkness, or figuratively, misery, destruction, death, ignorance, sorrow, night or obscurity. The other word is Strongs #6937 “qadar” to mean dark colored, sackcloth, be black, to make dark meaning no light. Is there coming a day in the past that made the sun become black and no light, and that falls anywhere near a prophetic feast day, that we have determined could be the day the Lord says He would return? In the secular, they are called “solar eclipses” either partial or total. When the sun is covered either in part or total, the moon receiving it’s light from the sun, turns reddish in color, depending on what part of the world you are viewing it from called a “Blood Moon”.

If we go to NASA, a secular authority that tracks these solar and lunar eclipses, we find that they have a complete listing of the eclipses that have happened and the ones that will be coming in the future. NASA identifies these as Blood Moon Tetrads, or four consecutive lunar eclipses that group together. There have only been two in the last century and they came on dates that are associated with prophetic events concerning Israel.  The first set of lunar eclipses were in 1949 and 1950 that are associated with the formation of Israel as a nation. Their birth was 1948, but the government was not established until 1949. Those events happened in April and October of 1949, and April and September of 1950. The other event surrounded the recapturing of Jerusalem in 1967 or the Six Day War. Those eclipses were in April and October of each year of 1967 and 1968 also known as Passover and Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkoth. These can be viewed as  prophetic markers in the sky that pointed to a completion of God’s promise to restore Israel and Jerusalem to the Jewish people. How common are these Blood Moon Tetrads, and the complete lunar eclipses of four in a row? Quite rare, as it had not happened in the past before 1949, except in 1493, and will happen only one other time left  in this century and will not happen again for 500 years. I’d would call that rare.

BLOOD MOONING RISING, AGAIN


As we have learned, there have been two blood moon tetrads in the last century, but notice our last lesson that Jesus made a clue that pointed to a feast day of His return? None of these last blood moon tetrads fell on what Jesus alluded to as the prophetic day in the Hebraic calendar we have determined to possibly be the Feast of Trumpets and the Lord’s return. Is there another total eclipse coming in the near future that does fall on these feast days? Yes...there is. According to NASA there was another set of lunar eclipses coming up in 2014 and 2015 past. Why is this significant? In 2014 these eclipses fall on April and October, 2014 which so happens to be again, Passover and Tabernacles of that year. Again it will happen in 2015 on yet another Holy Day of Passover and Tabernacles in April and September. But remember, Joel said that the Day of the Lord would happen AFTER these signs are shown.

"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and
the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of
the LORD come”. Joel 2:31

So we see that the Lord may be saying that He won't come in 2014 or 2015, as the signs or Blood Moon Tetrads have not been completed, but that's not in concrete, as God can do pretty much what He wants to do, apart from what man thinks He meant. The next Feast of Trumpets will be October 2nd-October 3, 2016 and a possible sign of His return (We watch and pray). This is also the end of a generation after Israel became a nation, and also the end of a 50 year Jubilee or the end of a generation as previously discussed.

But there's more, there was also a total eclipses on the beginning of the Hebrew calendar on March 20th, 2015, and again the very next year on March 9th, 2016, also the beginning of the Hebrew Calendar year. These are both on a new moon of both years and NASA says that will be total eclipses. Another point is that on the year of the Feast of Trumpets there will be a partial solar eclipses on the very day. A very rare occurrence to say the least.

What are the chances of this happening on these exact days in our past, and our future...? The answer is NEVER. It has never happened in the past, and it will never happen in our lifetime and won’t happen again at all for 100 years! Coincidence? I don’t think so. But remember, we observe that the Lord has completed His first advent on the exact feast days found in the spring, and it bears note that He will most likely, follow suit to complete the fall observances, as well. Could these signs in the sun, moon and the stars proclaim the coming of the Lord on a future Feast of Trumpets? It bears much study and prayer, waiting and watching for further signs. But again, I make no claim that these are facts indisputable and I am not infallible, but only reporting what God has shown me and others that may be coming upon the earth.

DANIEL OPENS UP TO OUR UNDERSTANDING


When Daniel had revealed to him what was to come upon the earth, in Daniel beginning on chapter 9, Daniel inquired of God when will this all come to pass. What did God say to the prophet? Daniel 12:8,


"And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what [shall be] the end of these [things?]{12:9} And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end."


These signs were quite concerning for the prophet and he inquired of their fulfillment and was told the signs of the times would be sealed until the time of the end. Knowing full well that the signs are all around us, I believe the signs are being opened up to us to understand. I’m amazed at how many ministers are becoming aware of these signs in the heavens that are possible signs to the coming of our Lord. Do we get any of this wrong? None of us are infallible, but each minister takes his interpretation and prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to lead them into all truth. Do we all agree? Not on everything, as this minister believes that the coming signs point to a pre-tribulation removal of the church before the beginning of Jacob’s trouble. Why do I say that? Some make a distinction of the Day of the Lord and the beginning of the Tribulation to be two separate events. I'm a believer that when the church is removed, God's wrath will begin falling on this rebellious earth we live upon. Both have one thing in common and that is God’s wrath. But we are not the focus of God’s wrath, as God told Isaiah that He would punish the world for it’s wickedness but the people of God would be hidden away.

Isaiah 26,
{26:19} "Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead
body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust:
for thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast
out the dead.
{26:20} Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers,
and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a
little moment, until the indignation be overpast. {26:21}

For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish
the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also
shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain."


TWO OR THREE WITNESSES CONFIRM A MATTER


2nd Corinthians:
{13:1} "This [is] the third [time] I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."

There are more witnesses than even this, if we follow what the bible tells us about the end of days...witness #1, Jesus said,
Matthew 24,
"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. {24:35} Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."


Taking our Lord literally, we know that a generation is 70 years for man, 80 by strength. Psalms 90,
90:10} “The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is] their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away”


When Jesus was on earth He said that this generation would not pass, as noted in the above verses, but also identified in His Word that a generation is 70-80  years. I believe that time clock started ticking away again when Israel became a nation according to the parable of the fig tree.
Matthew 24,
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is
nigh: {24:33} So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these
things, know that it is near, [even] at the doors. {24:34}
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all
these things be fulfilled. {24:35} Heaven and earth shall
pass away, but my words shall not pass away."


As we have studied in the past, Israel is that fig tree and she bloomed once again, according to prophecy, in 1948 when she became a nation declared by David Ben-Gurion and ratified by the UN charter, that the 70 year time clock began once again. That generation who saw that fulfillment would see the Lord’s return.
Witness #2.
The liberation of Jerusalem in the Six Day War of 1967 began the countdown for the year of Jubilee. What is the  year of Jubilee? It is the definition of property rights and land ownership, the freeing of slaves, but more importantly is the beginning and end of the generation. I take you to the definition found in Strongs #1755 and the Hebrew word “dowr", which describes the meaning of the Jubliee as “ period, generation, dwelling, age and  habitation" If you take the capturing of Jerusalem and returning it to the Jewish people and the nation of Israel from 1967-1968, adding 50 years, you come to the end of that generation....that is also the end of the length of a generation according to Psalm and they both fall in the year 2017.
Witness #3
Last clue to the end of a generation, is the coming Blood Moon Tetrads that fall on a Feast of Tabernacles on2014 and 2015 .
Can all these clues be pure coincidence? The possibility of this of this occurrence by chance is unfathomable. It it is impossible in the human realm for all these clues to be colliding with one another.

LET’S REVIEW WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED


We have established the premise that Jesus was giving the disciples an “idiom” that pointed to His telling them that He would return on a future Feast Day of Trumpets some time in the next two thousand years which is our time.
We have established that all things are connected to Israel and surround her as the key to prophetic events past, present and future, if you have been following any of my sermons from the past.
We have established that there are literally witness after witness that points to a generation being fulfilled in the year 2017-2018.
And the cap on the stone, is the signs of the sun and the moon that were given as signs in the heavens that Jesus said would be occurring just before the “Day of the Lord” We know that the day of the Lord begins in chapter 6 of Revelation, as this is when God’s wrath is falling about the heads of earth dwellers...

Revelation chapter 6,
{6:12} "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair,
and the moon became as blood; {6:13} And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

{6:14} And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled
together; and every mountain and island were moved out of
their places. {6:15} And the kings of the earth, and the great
men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the
mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid
themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
{6:16} And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and
hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and
from the wrath of the Lamb: {6:17} For the great day of his
wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"


This signals the beginning of the Day of Wrath, the Day of the Lord’s wrath  upon the earth. It begins an awful times of gloom, death and destruction.
Zephaniah, chapter 1, starting v. 15,
"That day [is] a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of
wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and
gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, {1:16} A
day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and
against the high towers. {1:17} And I will bring distress
upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they
have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be
poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung."


This day begins with the opening of the first seal in chapter 6 and continues unabated until God sends His seventh angel with the vial or bowl  judgment to pour out His vengeance from the cup of His indignation without mixture, meaning full strength.
To bring this time of judgment, the church looks for a sign of hope, of blessings, and the fulfillment of God’s promise to His true church.
Revelation chapter 3,
“{3:10} Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. {3:11} Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown."


Finally, brethren, lastly take one last look at the coming signs that have been forecast and prophesied by men, and by God respectively.
Any of the  following and what is addressed above does not mean that the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will definitely occur in what I have taught here, as they are signs that show that the time is close, right at the door. But to pinpoint a date, as some have done, is not in our knowledge. Only the Father knows for sure and it is in His authority to show it to His saints and His ministers.  What the above taken as a whole does show is a pattern of how God has been working up to this time and what the signs are coming in the near future.  If that is the case one could see the following table in conclusion:
-The first Tetrad was in 1493-1494 and heralded the Jewish Dispersion from Spain and the Jews were scattered. (note, Columbus discovered America on this date or a future home of the Jewish Dispersion)
-the Second Tetrad of 1949-1950 heralded the Israel becoming a nation and the regathering of the Jews to their homeland.
-The Third Tetrad of 1967-1967 ushered in Israel regaining control of Jerusalem and recapturing the Temple Mount.
-The Fourth Tetrad coming in 2014-2015 point to a major event for Israel. 

 Lastly, we have identified that 2016 and 2017 is the only date for another 500 years that will have this prophesied sign in the heavens to proclaim the coming of the Lord on the Feast of Trumpets.

A CALL TO REPENTANCE


My reader, you have been given the evidence. You can search the internet and your bible to prove what you have read is truth. God is speaking to all who will listen. But make no mistake about one thing...Jesus is coming, very soon. In what year and what Feast of Trumpets, we do not know.  It is a wise man who calls himself a Christian to get his house in order. Do not let the Lord find you ashamed on that day or standing naked and caught unawares.
To the fence sitter and the unrepentant, today is the day of salvation. There may be no other chance for you in this life to do so.
2nd Corinthians:
{6:1} "We then, [as] workers together [with him,] beseech [you] also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
{6:2} (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold,
now [is] the accepted time; behold, now [is] the day of salvation.)"


Do not reject so great a salvation as to do so will condemn  you for all eternity.
1st Peter:
{1:4} "To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away,  reserved in heaven for you, {1:5}Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."


Do not refuse the calling of the Holy Spirit, as He calls you today, even as you read this. Prove all things to yourself. Reach out to Him who is able to free you from this sinful world and bring you to a place that He wants to put your name there, and spend all eternity in the light of His glory.

A day is fast approaching, a day of gloom, darkness and incredible sadness for all who have rejected the free offering of His grace by accepting the sacrifice of His Son on a cruel Roman cross to be a substitution of the penalty that each of us deserve...death! But He wishes to make you alive in Christ Jesus. Won’t you take that opportunity right now. You are promised only today to live your life, right now..tomorrow might be too late.
Hebrews{12:24}
"And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to theblood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel. {12:25} See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more [shall not] we [escape,] if we turn away from him that [speaketh] from heaven: {12:26} Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. {12:27} And this [word,] Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
{12:28}
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: {12:29} For our God [is] a consuming fire."


For COMING tomorrow soon, a coming day of redemption for all who believe in God’s only Begotten Son, and to those who reject Him, The wrath of God and the coming Day of the Lord!

Hello there Mike Taylor!

In your commentary, (the one that is titled, "Blood Moon Rising -- Day of the Lord"), you say the following:

"So we know that the Lord can't come in 2014 or 2015, as the signs or blood moon tetrads have not been completed."

Mike, when you say that "the Lord can't come in 2014 or 2015" you are NOT talking about the Rapture of the Church, are you?

I DO hope that you believe that the Rapture of the Church could take place **at any moment**, maybe even here in 2013!

Please reply to back me here and briefly tell me what you meant to say in that commentary.

Thank you, my brother!

I believe the Lord God can come on any day He wishes to come. Who am I to say He is limited? But the point of the study was to take scripture and try and determine what He was saying to us. I believe He is saying that He will follow what He has done in the past. He has fulfilled His Spring Holy days to the letter. Why would we think He would not complete His fall days in like fashion?

It seems to reason knowing that God is a God of order. If He stays true to what He has done in the past, then looking at the signs in the heavens that are coming in 2014-2015 gives us a big clue that there is something coming associated with Israel, based on past moon tetrads...what will happen around these days are conjecture on our part, trying to interpret what He meant. To say that He can't do something is limiting God, so my statement is probably a little erroneous, but is pointing to a day or set of dates post blood moon tetrads that would fulfill His past appearance on THE feast day He ordained as a sign of the coming of the King, followed by the Tribulation noted as days between Trumpets and Atonement. The second coming of His reign and rule to fall on that very day. We will keep the Feast of Tabernacles per Zechariah 14 in His 1000 year reign, as He is with us, and commanded us to worship Him on His Holy Days of Tabernacles during that reign.

The aforementioned days (blood moon tetrads), COULD mean the beginning of the coming wrath of God on this world beginning, and the scenario that I am entertaining, is that one of the feast days of 2016 forward could be the day to expect Him returning...in concrete? No, I'm not God, but I'm giving all who will listen a heads up, so to speak, that the time is at hand and we all must be making preparations to make ready. Get right with God now through believing on the only Way back to the Father, through His Son, Jesus Christ. God bless you,
YBIC,
Pastor MIke

Hi Pastor Mike

One of us is reading the NASA charts wrong. I won't rule out it is me, but your dates are accurate but just incomplete. Here is what I found using the NASA Eclipse website:
http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/LEcat5/LEcatalog.html

“NASA identifies these as Blood Moon Tetrads…”

NASA doesn’t call them Blood Moon Tetrads. Just tetrads.

“There have only been two in the last century…”

There have been five in the last century. 1909-1910. 1927-1928. 1949-1950. 1967-1968. 1985-1986.

“How common are these Blood Moon Tetrads, and the complete lunar eclipses of four in a row? Quite rare, as it had not happened in the past before 1949, except in 1493,….”

There were six in 1501-1600, four in 1401-1500. From 1400- year 0, there have been 30. From 1400 to 2000 BC there've been about 100. Still rare, but has definitely happened in the past with some frequency.

“… and will happen only one other time left in this century and will not happen again for 500 years”

There will be 8 in this century, 4 in 2101-2200, none in 2201-2400, and 4 in 2401-2500. That gives us 16 tetrads in the next 500 years, eight not including this century's set of tetrads.

regards,
Dan

Hi Dan, Mike was talking about only the Tetrads that happens on the Passover and Feast of Tabernacles that there were two this century not counting 2014-2015. I am so looking forward to the one this month on Sunday Sept. 27, I just might have to throw a blood moon party lol. Shalom
