In my previous epistle (as in all of them in this series), I told you of the glorious, eternal future that awaits all who die who will have remained faithful to the Lord during this final 7 years. As I have previously stated, there will only be 1/3 of the Jewish people who will survive the entire 7 years of the Tribulation. Very few Gentiles (non-Jews) worldwide will live and survive through this global cataclysm as well.
The harsh reality is that, in all probability, as I’ve stated numerous times, it’s very likely you will not be one of the survivors. Again I reiterate that you need to heed the calling of God and come to salvation as quickly as possible. I also must exhort you by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, who will enable you to do so, that you remain faithful to Christ even unto death if need be.
Even if you should somehow survive the coming horrors, yet you remain lost without Christ, or if you deny Him and take the coming “mark” that the Antichrist will mandate, then you will certainly die anyway at the end of these last 7 years when the King of Kings (Jesus Christ) returns to set His foot upon planet Earth again.
Your soul, however, which is immortal, will continue to exist throughout eternity in either one of two places:
If you are saved, it will be in Heaven along with Christ, the already glorified Church, and all the Old Testament Saints who will also be awaiting their new glorified bodies.
If you are not saved, you will find your sentient, conscious self in Sheol (Hell) where your soul will suffer in torment until after the literal, 1000-year reign of Christ upon this earth is concluded. At the end of Jesus’ earthly reign, you will then face Almighty God at the Great White Throne Judgment. There, you will be given an eternal body that will be constructed never to die, but to suffer, along with Satan and all the fallen angels in the place of ultimate judgment and torment called the Lake of Fire.
In this final place of all condemned souls, you will suffer in a conscious state and be able to experience great pain, loss and regret for all eternity. From this torment (both in Sheol and ultimately in the Lake of Fire), there will be no escape, no hope and no possibility of annihilation to ease or stop your suffering.
However, the great news is that you don’t have to go there. God never intended that man should go to that dreadful place. It’s the very reason that God the Son came and paid the penalty for mankind’s sinful state, so that all who are willing to believe in Him – all who are willing to accept freely His offer of pardon for their sins – can escape such a horrific place.
“For God is not willing that ANY should perish (eternally) but that all should come to repentance.”
However, God will not ever force that choice on anyone. It is ours alone to make. Each one of us will either choose eternal life through Christ Jesus, or we will reject His offer of eternal salvation and continue on in our own way and end up in an eternal Hell. Extremely sobering choice, isn’t it? So, what will you do with Jesus?
Please read again the previous chronicle before you go any further, because you need to be reassured that there is eternal hope for all who are willing to come to salvation – those of you who are willing to lay down your physical lives so that your immortal souls may be eternally saved.
Read again the previous letter on the Tribulation and draw strength from the Word of God, because for those of you who are now living the events told of in these narratives, we have now arrived at the midpoint of the last 7 years of human history under the regime of Satan, the usurping fallen cherub, who is the Prince of Darkness, the Great Deceiver, and the enemy of the Most High God.
From here on out, events that have already been devastating will now become cataclysmic on a scale that is beyond description. Events will move rapidly and with far greater intensity from now on during these last 3 1/2 years left before the Messiah King returns.
Here is what will happen 3 1/2 years into these last 7 years. These are the events for which you must be watching and preparing yourself to face:
As I have told you in previous letters, at the beginning of this last 7 years, there will arise upon the world stage a man who will “confirm a covenant” with Israel and “many” other nations. This man, whatever his name turns out to be, will be the long-foretold Antichrist.
He will at first appear to be a man of peace, but in reality will be the ultimate deceiver. He will use “peace” as the means by which he will bring absolute destruction upon planet Earth.
Early on, he will make it possible for the Jews to rebuild their Temple on its ancient site, and will (at first) allow the Jews to re-institute Temple animal sacrifices and worship in accordance with their ancient religious practices. This largesse on his part will not last.
There will also arise on the scene another man who will aid the Antichrist. This man will be a religious leader under whose leadership all of the false, ecumenical religions will be united. This religious figurehead will, along with the Antichrist, possess great supernatural powers and abilities that will be granted to them by Satan himself; and by these powers, these two unholy men will deceive and destroy many.
This religious leader will institute some type of identification or “marking” system that utilizes the identity of the Antichrist, his name, or the numerical value of his name as an identification system, a tracking system, and as a pledge of fealty to the Antichrist and his global system.
Taking this mark not only identifies the taker as a part of his global regime, it also signifies acceptance and worship of the Antichrist himself, along with loyalty to his globalist system. Receiving this mark also condemns to Hell every single person who takes it!
From this act of acceptance, there is NO forgiveness.
You will recognize this “mark” because it will be mandated for every person on earth. Without it no one will be able to buy, sell, transact business, rent or own a home, carry on daily commerce, receive medical help, travel freely in society, and so forth. Also, everyone who refuses to take this mark will be targeted, hunted, and executed by the global elites who will be in charge.
Nevertheless, it is much better to die physically refusing this “mark” and remaining faithful to the Lord Jesus, than to accept it and have your soul eternally damned. All who become believers will have the very Holy Spirit of God with him/her, who will come along beside you to give you the grace and strength you will need to refuse the mark and accept martyrdom for the Lord’s sake.
Also at midpoint, the two Jewish emissaries of God – His “two witnesses” – will have been preaching in Jerusalem for the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation, untouchable by anyone including the Antichrist and his hellish False Prophet.
At midpoint in these last 7 years, however, God will allow the Antichrist to kill these two men. Their bodies will lie unburied and undisturbed in the streets of Jerusalem for 3 1/2 days. The entire world will watch their execution. The entire world will be able to view their dead bodies lying in the streets of Jerusalem via satellite TV, on all forms of social media, and via cell phones.
The entire world of unbelievers will rejoice in their deaths, even going so far as to give gifts to each other in celebration of their murder by the Antichrist – that is until the power of the Holy Spirit resurrects their dead bodies, at which time they will be bodily caught up back into Heaven when the Lord shouts for them to arise with the command to, “Come up here.”
As a result of the ministry of these two witnesses, God will save and seal 144,000 Jewish young men – 12,000 from each of the 12 ancient tribes of Israel.
God will send these 144,000 redeemed men out into the entire world as His witnesses. As a result of their evangelism, millions upon millions of lost people the world over from every nation, kindred, tribe and tongue will come to salvation in Christ.
If you should encounter one or more of these Jewish men (or any Jewish believer), you must do all you can to render them aid, provide shelter, offer protection, and defend them. You must, even at the cost of your own life, preserve their mission; for Christ said that anything one does either for or against any of these, whom He specifically calls “His brethren,” He (Christ) will view it the same as having been done to Him personally.
Now we come to the specifics of what will identify this time as the midpoint and the beginning of events that will usher in God’s GREAT tribulation.
From here on out, it will be literally Hell unleashed on earth. This is not metaphorical nor is it hyperbole, for as you will see in subsequent letters, The Abyss (Tartarus) will be opened and all manner of actual demonic entities along with the bound, fallen angels will be released: Those who sinned so egregiously that God Himself imprisoned these particular ones there in the Abyss, and four great angels bound in the Euphrates River who will be unleashed in the spirit realm.
You may read in Genesis chapter 6 and in Jude about what this particular group of fallen angels did that so angered God that He bound them in Tartarus from the time of the Flood of Noah’s day. These demonic entities will hereafter make incursions into this dimension.
As you will have already seen, supernatural events will have been visibly occurring on an almost daily basis. These kinds of things will increase in both frequency and intensity. From now until the end, nothing in the life you are now living will be even remotely normal anywhere in this world. Therefore, prepare for God’s wrath to be poured out on this wicked, vile, debauched, Christ-hating world. Prepare yourself. The Lion of Judah is about to ROAR.
(1) The Antichrist will receive what will appear to be a mortal head wound; however, he will miraculously recover from this wound. It is probably at this time (around the midpoint of the last 7 years or possibly just before, when this global leader either is killed or more likely will appear to have been killed and suddenly “resurrects”) that Satan himself actually enters the body of the Antichrist and possesses him. Watch for this great world leader (the Antichrist) to suffer a fatal or near-fatal head wound from which it appears that he miraculously recovers.
(2) Three and one half years into this last 7 years (midpoint), the Antichrist will betray the Jewish people by breaking his covenant with them. He will install an altar to himself with some type of “living” (possibly some sort of artificial intelligence-AI) image of himself in the most holy of places – inside the Temple called the Holy of Holies. He will then demand that everyone everywhere worship him as God.
This is an act that Jesus in the Bible called “the abomination of desolation” or the “abomination that causes desolation.” Watch for this event.
(3) As a result of this betrayal, the spiritual eyes of many Jews will finally be opened to the true identity of this deceiver, and many of them will come to salvation in their true Messiah, Jesus Christ.
God will supernaturally protect this now believing Jewish remnant by providing a safe and secure haven for these new believers, immediately following this betrayal. He will protect them in the area of Petra (Bozrah). See Isaiah 63. Watch for a mass exodus of Jews relocating into Jordan just after the Antichrist defiles the Jewish Temple, which will happen 3 ½ years into this last 7-year time period.
God has prepared a place for them there, and these Jews will be protected and sheltered in Petra/ Bozrah until Messiah Jesus returns to rescue and free them. 1/3 of all of Israel will come to belief in Jesus as their Savior Messiah (Zechariah 13:8-9) after this ultimate betrayal. This 1/3 of the Jewish nation will be spared and will be brought safely through the Tribulation so that, by the end of this time, ALL of remaining Israel (that is ALL who are left alive and are now believers in Jesus as their Messiah) will be saved, just as scripture says they will be. (Read about this in the New Testament book of Romans chapter 11:25-27).
Sadly 2/3 of the Jews will perish physically. As a result, they will suffer eternally as well in the Lake that forever burns with fire.
(4) The two Jewish witnesses will be killed, but will be resurrected 3 1/2 days later.
(5) The False Prophet – the religious leader – will mandate that every person be required to receive some sort of mark in their right hand or in their forehead. This “mark” will be in some way identified with the Antichrist, his name, or the numerical value of his name. DO NOT TAKE THIS MARK.
(6) The slaughter of Christian believers (Tribulation believers or Tribulation Saints if you will) that will have already begun will ramp up to an unprecedented level. Most of these new believers will be killed by beheading. Remain faithful! The Holy Spirit will give you all the strength and grace you will need to endure, and to overcome the pain, fear, and death. Remember, the very instant your soul leaves your body, you will be in the presence of God, never to be hurt or suffer again! Hold on to this hope!
(7) Unprecedented, ecological disasters will now begin.
(8) Supernatural, demonic incursions into this dimension will become much more frequent and increasingly more intense and direct.
These are the events that will mark and identify that you will have reached the midpoint of the Tribulation. In my next letter I will endeavor to acquaint you with what is to come during the last half.
Read Revelation chapters 7-19. I will attempt to help you decipher and understand what is recorded there. Things will doubtless be much clearer to you, since you will be living these things, than they are to those of us reading of these coming events on this side of the rapture. As always, the Holy Spirit of God will illumine and clarify your understanding so that you will be able to see, know, and understand all that will be coming to pass.
Remain faithful even unto death. Worthy is the Lamb!
