The Departure Withholds the Revealing of the Antichrist

(II Thessalonians 2)

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord YAHSHUA the Messiah, and by our assembling unto Him, that you be not suddenly moved from your mind, nor troubled neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as it were from us, as though the day of Messiah were at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there comes a departing first, and that that man of sin be disclosed, even the son of perdition (II Thess. 2:1-3).

Paul’s reference to the term “that day” has to do with the tribulation. He begged the Thessalonians not to be troubled, disturbed with the news from some letter they had received that that day had arrived and they were found in it. Paul emphatically said, “Let no man deceive you.” For that to happen a departure must happen first and the man of perdition be revealed. Not until then. Don’t you remember that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? (Vs. 5) The departure will precede the revealing of the wicked man and the tribulation. This wicked man, the Bible says, is coming by the effectual working of Satan, with all power, and signs and lying wonders and in all deceivableness of unrighteousness, among them that perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore, God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe lies (vs.9-11).

When Satan comes in a person of the wicked man or man of perdition, he will not come for the bride of Christ, but for those who have “received not the love of the truth.” It is not to the believers that God is going to send a strong delusion for them to believe lies; they are not the recipients of that, but of the blessed hope of salvation. The Greek word apostasia in verse three was transliterated in English as apostasy, or the falling away from the faith, from the truth, etc. The word apostasia in ancient Greek is made of two words, hence the Bible scholar Bullinger in his commentary on the subject explains: “apo governs only one case (the genitive). (Genitive is a word or construction case of origin, according to Webster’s dictionary; in the English language it corresponds to the possessive case) and denotes motion from the surface of an object; it is used of motion away from a place (e.g. Matt. 3:16; 8:1; Acts 15: 38). It marks the distance which separates the two places, or the interval of time between two events (e.g. Matt. 19:4; Acts 20: 18). It also marks the origin or source whence anything comes, such as birth, descent, residence (e.g. Matt. 2:1; 15: 1). Apo may consequently be used of deliverance or passing away from any state or condition (e.g. Matt. 1: 21; 14: 2; Mark 5: 34; Acts 13:8; Heb. 6:1). Apo would imply a cause virtually passive and more remote.

Rapture and Tribulation Dreams by Nine Year Old Catherine From Indonesia

On the night of September 18th, 2020 Catherine had a very long dream, which was the fourth time she had the same dream. She had a series of dreams. The first was short; a few weeks later, she had a second dream, which was a repetition of the first dream, plus more things shown to her. The third dream was exactly the same as the second dream. Not understanding the dreams, she asked God to give her the same dream again. That’s when on September 18, 2020, God gave her the fourth dream with a lot more shown to her.

In her own words she recounts the dreams: I dreamt that I was lying in bed with my sister, while my mother read Bible stories as usually, she did. Suddenly, there was a large, and dark microchip flying into the room through the open window.  It flew across our faces and continued through the bedroom door, out into the dining room, making a hollow on the table. The front door was opened and there stood Bill Gates, Dr. Fauci and three guards One of them said, Well, well, well there are people here needed to be vaccinated. First dream ended.

Dreams continued as follows:

When they tried to vaccinate us, all of a sudden, we were raptured very quickly. I heard them say, We should have vaccinated them earlier.  As we were raptured, we could see tall buildings, while we were crossing the cloud’s layers in the sky, I saw God, but not His face, for it was very bright. I saw angels and millions of people. I could see guardian angels. They were handsome and tall. When we got to space, our clothes changed to white overalls (robe). We were no loner in family’s ties. Everyone was called by their real names. Older people looked younger, everyone looked prettier.

When we were being rapture, I saw what was happening on earth. I saw many people from various countries being raptured. The shofar continued sounding as people were raptured, until all was raptured. The trumpet sounding was followed by thunder sounding very loud, perhaps 20X louder than the usual. Other countries experienced it first, then Indonesia.  The hail caused the flood water level to get higher. I saw large sharks in the water preying on people floating on water. I also saw jelly fish sting people with very painful stings. From the sky, we followed the Lord ascending to heaven. The gates of heaven were white or gold and the roads were of gold. In heaven, we fought Satan with Bible verses. The more Scriptures that he heard, the more that he was pushed down.  I saw President Donald Trump being elected as the President of America. Several nuclear bombs exploded in America. I watched Bill Gates go to schools all over the world to vaccinate children. Several children ran away from him. The microchip was given together with the vaccine.

The Rapture

Trumpet sounds, earth tremor

Heaven opens in glorious splendor

Jesus breaks through the clouds

No time left in the hour

Arise, redemption has arrived.


I hear my name

Through the trumpet sound

In a speed of light

My body is translated

In a flight to the sky.


Angels and archangels

Lift their voices!

At Jesus’ command

Go fetch My bride

The earth dims before my eyes.


In the Twinkling of an Eye

How much can happen in the speed of a twinkling of an eye? I Can’t think of anything besides the twinkling of an eye itself. What will take place in that short space of time that will be supernaturally magnificent? The hope of glory radiating a beautiful glow, as God brings to life those who were dead in Him and those of us who are still living, when will experience a transformation from corrupt to uncorrupted body, at the sound of His trumpet. That is called our hope of glory. Paul, in his writings to the Corinthian church says, Take notice! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all fall asleep [in death], but we shall all be changed (I Cor. 15: 51). How fast it will all happen? He said, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. Paul probably thought that day was going to come in his lifetime. The Christians of those days embraced this hope then more than we do today, for the fact that their lives were constantly under severe persecution for their faith. The Thessalonians thought they were already into the great tribulation, so great were their sufferings. But Paul assured them saying that for the tribulation to happen, the rapture had to come first, or the “departure” of the bride of Christ, of which they were part of. It seems to me that for many, persecution will have to happen in their lives for they to desire the Lord to come in an earnest desire, permeating their inner being.

The Two Witnesses

At the beginning of Israel as a nation, God established the law of two or three witnesses against the accused person. He said, One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity of any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established (Deut. 19:15). The importance of more than one witness in any case is necessary, for it provides protection for the innocent accused of things he has not done, especially in a court room when the accused faces the judge with his sentence: condemned or acquitted. If every court in this world would practice this law, there would be fewer innocent people sent to jail. A false witness, the Bible tells us, is an abomination to the Lord (Prov. 6:16-19).

Delivered From the Wrath To Come (Part 2)

Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial, which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth (Rev. 3:10) YAHSHUA’S words to the church of Philadelphia.    

God’s promise of deliverance for His faithful church has been established from the beginning under the condition, “Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance.” Conditioned as in, “forgive and you shall be forgiven.” What does it mean? The phrase the word of my patience, “Refers not to individual commandments to patience, but to the entire gospel message. The general whole of the word of YAHSHUA the Messiah communicated to men. The whole gospel, then, is so named inasmuch as it all records the patience which Christ exercised; it means that nothing in sorrow, nothing in trial, nothing in temptation, no antagonism, has the smallest power to divert us from doing what’s right.” (Maclaren’s expositions) ‘The word of My patience’ means “the word of Christ which requires patience to keep it; the gospel which teaches the need of a patient waiting for Christ.” (Vincent’s word studies).

The conditions in which qualifies the believer to escape the wrath of God are summarized in these words: “guarded and kept My word of patient endurance.” The Word of God throughout teaches endurance and patience. Two difficult things to apply to our Christian living. Without patience there will be no endurance to keep going, as in waiting for the Lord. Many so- called Christians have lost the patient and endurance of faith, to follow their ways contrary to God’s word. They walk in darkness and embrace whatever they hear from TV. They lost the very essence of God’s promise and continue walking far from Him. They lost hope in the fact that the Lord is coming, because, like the unbelievers, they do not believe in the promise and have become scoffers of it. The Apostle Peter wrote, … You must know and understand this, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, walk after their own fleshly desires and say, where is the promise of His coming? For since the forefathers fell asleep, all things have continued exactly as they did from the beginning of creation… nevertheless, do not let this one fact escape you, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day (II Peter 3:3-4,8). Men forget that God is eternal and there is no limit of space of time for Him. He exists outside of the measure and frame of time, in an everlasting, forever in an infinite and unmeasurable time: a thousand years as a day, a day as a thousand years.

The Union

(Ruth)

In the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem of Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, his wife, and his two sons. But Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died, and so did her two sons.

In this apparent voided of happiness story there is a prophetic and beautiful end. We see in this story not only the picture of God’s love embedded in His plan for the Gentile nations, but also Ruth as a type of the gentile bride of Christ.  Call me not Naomi, she said, call me Mara [bitter]. While Naomi was drained in her unhappiness, God had a beautiful future for her life; one that would make her forget all her past losses. It all started when her family moved from Bethlehem duo to a famine. There, she lost her husband and her two sons. After she had lived in Moab ten years, she decided to go back home. Apparently, she had had enough However, both her daughters-in-law showed the desire to follow her to Bethlehem, but when she persistently refused the idea, one of them left her and went back home. Ruth however, firmly said, “urge me not to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go, and where you lodge will lodge. Your people shall be my people and your God my God,” Naomi finally agreed to let Ruth go with her. In her words “Your people shall be my people,” Ruth showed great faith. There was more to her words than she realized. There was a prophetic meaning by being part of the nation of Israel she could never fathom. That would be a beautiful plan God had for her life. So, what compelled a young woman to give up her family, culture, and religion to follow her Mother-in-law, whose culture and religion were different from hers?  Perhaps Naomi, as her mother-in-law had a good influenced in her life, and as a result, a good relationship between them to compel Ruth to leave all behind to follow Naomi. But beyond the tangible, God was working His plan through Ruth’s life, to bring His Son into the world many years to come.

The Last Trump

(I Corinthians 15: 52; I Thessalonians 4:16)

The trumpet is an instrument of great significance in the Bible. It served Israel when in their pilgrimage through the desert: to call to assemble, to move on, to announce the new year, to call to war, and to proclaim victory, and more. Of all the instruments, God chose the trumpet to establish order, warnings in many aspects in the lives of the Jewish people. God also established the Feast of Trumpets for the nation to carry on the tradition He established for them. We read it in Leviticus 23:24: Say to Israelites, On the first day of the seventh month (almost October), you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial day announced by the blowing of trumpets, a holy assembly. When God descended to Mount Sinai to covenant with Israel, at the beginning of their journey, He expressed Himself to them through a loud trumpet sound. That was not a sound the people enjoyed, but a sound that caused them fear to the point of asking Moses to speak to them instead of God. That was a sound that echoed God’s holiness, purity and judgment, as Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke, for the Lord descended upon it in fire; its smoke ascended like that of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly. (Exo. 19:18-19). That was also the symbolic sound of the tribulation’s trumpets bringing judgements upon the earth for its wickedness.

At Mount Sinai, a trumpet sound sealed the covenant between God and Israel, and God’s trumpet future sounding will finalize His promise of redemption for His church. We also see in this chapter of Exodus the picture of the bride of Christ being taken away in verses 13 and 19 which reads, When  the trumpet sounds a long blast, they shall come up to the mountain; as the trumpet blast grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and God answered him with a voice; the Lord came down upon Mount Sinai to the top of the mountain, and the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain and Moses went up. Let’s compare this passage with the one in I Thessalonians 4:16: For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud summons, with the shout of an archangel and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first; then we, the living ones who remain, shall simultaneously be caught up along in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always we shall be with the Lord! A cry of summons, a shout and a trumpet and this time, the trumpet of God, will resonate for the rapture of the church of Christ, the one whose Chief Cornerstone is YAHSHUA her Lord.  The trumpet of God is a specific trumpet to be used to call His bride home, as opposed to the seventh trumpet of Revelation which will be used to bring judgment upon the earth. This is the reason why the need for the bride of Christ to be removed from earth.  The rapture is the means by which God will use to save the Bride of Christ before His wrath is poured on earth, just as He did for the righteous Noah before the flood and Lot before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. There would not have been a reason for the rapture of His bride, if there would not be a world-wide tribulation, or God’s wrath to punish the wicked people of this earth.

The Parable of the Fig Tree

                               (Matt. 24:32-35; Mark 13: 28-32; Luke 21: 29-33)

From the fig tree learn this lesson: as soon as its young shoots become soft and tender and it puts out its leaves, you know of a surety that summer is near. So also when you see these signs (24:1-31) all taken together coming to pass, you may know of surety that He is near, at the very doors. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away till all these things taken together take place. Sky and earth will pass away, but My word will not pass away (Matt. 24:32-35).

This parable of the fig tree representing the reestablishment of the state of Israel in 1948 and the space of generation of forty years in its relationship has been miss- interpreted by many, with the belief that in that generation of forty years after the birth of Israel, the Second Coming can happen.

According to the book, In the footsteps of the Messiah by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, there are two errors in this belief: (1) the Bible does not limit the period of a generation to be forty years, for the term “generation” can be twenty, forty, seventy, eighty and one hundred years. The only place where the term generation is given a specific time is found in Genesis 15:13-16, which is one hundred years. It says: And [God] said to Abram, Know positively that your descendants will be strangers dwelling as temporary residents in a land that is not theirs, and they will be slaves there and will be afflicted and oppressed for 400 years. But I will bring judgment on that nation whom they will serve, and afterward they will come out with great possessions… and in the fourth generation they shall come back here again, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full and complete. “And in the fourth generation” of one hundreds Israel shall come back to their land.

Waiting For Him

Life is many things in time and season for all of us. For some, life is joyous and fulfilling; for others, life is searching its meaning. But life is for us all, waiting. Sometimes in lines, sometimes for time; sometimes to grow up. Waiting, as a matter of fact, is life wrapped up in gray hairs, in hope and faith until death separates the spirit from the body. It will always exist in our life-time. Life without time to wait, is fast and unsecured.  The Lord YAHSHUA assured us with the promise of His return for us by saying, Let not your heart be troubled, believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you; for I am going away to prepare a place for you. And when I go and make ready a place for you, I will come back again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also (John 14:1-3).  A familiar passage we often mention to boost our hope in His promise, but at the same time, many of us are waiting not for this promise, but for the false messiah to be revealed. While we wait for Him, our hearts must not be troubled with anxiety and worries over the evil happenings in the world. Our hearts must be filled with faith and belief in God and in YAHSHUA’S promise of His return for us, when He will take us to Himself. This promise was the hope of all who came before us, without seeing it being fulfilled. This promise has been given thousands of years ago to the prophets of old. They too did not see it fulfilled in their life time, but it is still alive today, supporting and uplifting us in this troubled world.
