The alarm for war is sounding loud and clear… who is listening?
“My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war” (Jer. 4:19).
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars….” (Matt: 24:6).
Everywhere you look, the alarms are sounding. China is posturing since Pres. Trump has begun to bring lil Kim (North Korea) to the table. China has been building artificial islands in the S. China sea, and the US is taking notice. We’ve sent warships near the area (according to an American Military News article). These two islets are in waters also claimed by Taiwan, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The US intends to enforce right of free passage on international waters under international law. It’s a tinderbox ready to blow. There will come a time when posturing ends and action begins. Is anyone paying attention?
Is China hoping to take the US’ eyes off of Iran, Russia, and Turkey, setting the stage to fulfill Ez. 38-39? Iran continues to threaten blocking the Strait of Hormuz. Iran also continues their nuclear ambitions; the proof is in the (additional and newer) satellite imagery that PM Netanyahu brought forth recently at the UN. Russia has warned Israel about further strikes since Syria recently shot down a Russian plane during one of Israel’s strikes on Iranian interests in Syria. Israel proclaims loud and clear that they will not be deterred from stopping Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Things are truly heating up as never before. Isaiah 17 is on the near horizon. Is anyone paying attention?
Muslims are killing Muslims all around the world, as has been going on since the evil religion was resurrected from the vestiges of ancient Babylon. Their false ‘god’ is nothing more than the moon ‘god’ harlot religion repackaged. The devil himself. Their Quran promotes violence, rape, theft, abuse of women and children, slavery, and murder. These barbarians are being systematically brought into westernized nations to destabilize and cause chaos. The end goal is to end national sovereignty and bring in a global government—one we know sounds very much like the antichrist’s global government to come. Yet many western nations are harshly censoring speech about their immigration, and subsequent crimes committed after immigrating. Is anyone paying attention?
- Africa is facing a soon-coming civil war or the mass murder of certain segments of its population. Genocide and mass murder of Christians is occurring in rapid fashion in S. Africa. I’ve been working on an article (or series of articles) pertaining to S. Africa. I’ve interviewed many eyewitnesses and have been collecting their firsthand accounts over the last two months. I’ll also include numerous source videos and articles. (God willing, and should the Lord tarry long enough for the articles to be completed and published; and if not I am fine with our soon Blessed Hope!)
Yet mainstream media says little to nothing about the truly horrific crimes occurring in South Africa. You’d think the world would be paying attention since actual genocide is occurring. But the folks being slaughtered there happen to have a skin color which is not PC to discuss. It’s open season on whites and Christians. Ethnicity is being pitted against ethnicity. Political ideology is being pitted against political ideology. There are also hundreds of similarities between US and western nations’ leftist party and the S. African communist government that I intend to bring forth in future articles (God willing). Is anyone paying attention?
All around the globe, the warning sounds are shrieking. War is threatened everywhere. Civil war could break out even in the US and many other nations. Violence and the threat of violence are on the rise. Lawlessness has become commonplace around the globe—even in western so-called civilized nations— exactly as Bible prophecy foretold would be the case. Is anyone paying attention?
Yet soon, there will be no more warning alarms. No more posturing. Soon there will be widespread war across the globe (Matt. 24:6-7; Mark 13:7-8; Luke 21:9-11; Rev. 6:3-4, 6:8; the second and fourth seal judgments in the tribulation). But first? The birth pains, the beginning of sorrows.
“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places” (Matt. 24:7).
“All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matt. 24:8).
What is the “beginning of sorrows?” Birth pains. The phrase “a woman in travail” also denotes the birth pains. Just like a woman in labor, these things will escalate and arrive closer together in frequency; each event will be more destructive and painful than the last. Just like a woman who, when her time has come, her contractions get closer together and stronger – more severe.
But what is to be birthed? A baby? No. The Christ-child baby Jesus was born over 2,000 years ago. The foretold Messiah to come fulfilled over 200 Old Testament prophecies during His first incarnation. The Word become flesh dwelt among mankind (John 1:1, 1:14). Sent from God (John 1:6, 3:16), and in Christ’s body dwells the fullness of the Godhead (Col. 2:9). Many in this evil world didn’t recognize Him, even though He made this world (John 1:10).
“He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not” (John 1:10).
Christ Jesus lived 33 years on this earth and willingly died for our sins, was buried, and rose the third day. (The gospel as declared in 1 Cor.15:1-4.)
Jesus is coming back. But this time He’s not coming back as a baby, He’s not coming back as a suffering servant. He fulfilled His purpose as the suffering servant the first time, and it need never be completed again (Heb. 10:10-14, Heb. 9:15-22, Phil. 2:6-10, Rev. 5:9-10).
This time He’s coming back as the Lion from the tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5), His eyes as flames of fire (Rev. 1:14, 2:18, 19:12). A sharp two-edged-sword in His mouth (the word of God) to defeat the evil in this world (Rev. 1:16, 2:12, 2:16, 19:15, 19:21). His countenance with the glory of God shining brighter than the sun shining in full strength (Rev. 1:16, 2 Thes. 2:8), upon whom no human can look upon and survive. Only Jesus has seen God (John 1:18, 6:46, 1 John 4:12). His glory is too bright and pure for human corruptible flesh to behold.
Jesus alone will tread the winepress of the FIERCENESS and WRATH of ALMIGHTY GOD (Rev. 19:15, Isaiah 63:3). This Jesus is foreign to those churches that do not teach Bible prophecy. They are still teaching only the suffering servant. They have no clue that He will smite the nations of the world in one fell swoop (Rev. 19:15). He will utter the word of God as a sword and defeat His enemies therewith (Rev. 19:21). As the word of God was spoken which formed the heavens and the earth’s existence (John 1:10, Heb. 11:3, Psalm 33:6-9), so too will He speak the words—His two-edged sword, the word of God—to destroy those within the earth, those who have rejected Christ and hated God.
He’ll be clothed in a vesture dipped in blood (Rev. 19:13; Isaiah 34:6, 63:1), the blood of the slain whose blood shall run out of the winepress of Almighty God, miles wide and deep across the ground (Rev. 14:20).
He is the King of kings and Lord of lords (Rev. 17:14, 19:16). Every knee shall bow to Him and every tongue confess/swear an oath that Christ Jesus is Lord to the glory of the Father (Phil. 2:10-11, Rom. 14:11, Isaiah 45:23).
So what is being birthed now? What are these clear and concise warning signs about? These beginning of sorrows? What is soon to come? The 70th week of Daniel (Dan. 9:24-27), the tribulation (Revelation chapter 6–18). The time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer. 30:7; Zech. 13:8-9; Rev.12:6, 12:14).
“Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames” (Isaiah 13:6-8).
“Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light” (Amos 5:18).
“For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree” (Isaiah 34:2-4).
Again we see the terms “as travail upon a woman with child” in 1 Thes. 5:3. This sudden foretold destruction will come upon the unsaved world unawares. The birth pain analogy is again noted in scripture.
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thes.5:3).
But we (grace/church-age believers) will not be present for that! Why will that day not overtake us? (v.4) Why will we not be present for that event? Verse 9-11 has the answer.
“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (1 Thes. 5:9-11).
We church/grace-age believers are given the promise of comfort in those verses, a promise that we are not appointed to God’s wrath. In fact, 1 Thes. 1:10 promises that we are promised deliverance from the wrath to come by Christ Jesus Himself. We won’t see the wrath of God commencing upon this world when the first seal is broken upon by Jesus Himself (Rev. 5:5); nor will we see the subsequent seals of wrath-filled judgment, nor the seven trumpets of wrath-filled judgments, nor the final seven vials of wrath poured out upon the world. We will be here for none of God’s wrath! He has promised us this.
So we know (from scripture) that we church/grace-age believers aren’t appointed to God’s wrath, but rather delivered from the wrath to come. Yet, what of this false “peace and safety” that 1 Thes. 5:3 speaks of? This pertains to the false ‘peace’ covenant the antichrist will confirm (Dan.9:27). But this coming covenant (some refer to as a ‘peace treaty’) won’t just cover peace. It will also entail the rebuilding of the temple and the permission to resume animal sacrifice.
To learn more about the conditions under which the covenant will be confirmed, see a previous article by clicking on this link.
The article I’ve noted above also contains information about the US’ stance on the Ez. 38-39 war (why the US won’t come to Israel’s aid), as well as an examination and contrast of scripture pertaining to whom it will be who (after the Ez.38-39 war) buries the bodies for 7 months (the house of Israel) and who it is that destroys the weaponry left behind for 7 years (those who dwell in the cities of Israel). Those two descriptions may not be the same people group, as the article delves into.
But also within that article (about halfway down) we examine the scripture pertaining to the covenant that kicks off the 7-year countdown of the tribulation. There is too much information in that article to discuss here, yet we know that the covenant will include not only false “peace and safety,” but also the temple and permission for animal sacrifice (which covenant is broken 3.5 years into the 7-year agreement by the antichrist).
So who is it that destroys many by (false) peace? The antichrist. Let’s read more about that in scripture, and then compare it with other scripture.
“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” (Dan. 8:25).
Let’s compare that to this scripture:
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thes.5:3).
What do we notice in these scriptures? That (false) peace is used to destroy many. Who performs the destruction in this case? The antichrist himself!
Not only will God’s wrath be meted out upon the unsaved God-hating and Christ-rejecting world, but God will also permit Satan to have a short space of time (3.5 years) to wreak havoc upon the world as well. The world’s chaos begins the moment the tribulation begins and the first seal of Revelation chapter 6 is opened.
Yet the sudden destruction upon the Jews will come when they have been deceived by the antichrist’s false “peace and safety” covenant. They will think they are living in “peace and safety” until the antichrist breaks the covenant at the midpoint of the seven years (3.5 years in). At that time, he will “cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease” (Dan. 9:27), and perform the “abomination of desolation” (Matt. 24:15) by defiling the temple by sitting in the temple and falsely proclaiming himself to be ‘god’ (2 Thes. 2:4).
When the antichrist defiles the temple, the Jews will know to flee Israel (Matt. 24:15-22). Sudden destruction will come upon 2/3rds of the Jews who are not prepared to flee, or who have bought into the antichrist’s lies. But 1/3 will know that the antichrist is a false messiah (as was warned of in Matt. 24:23-26 and others).
But the wise Jews will flee rapidly—so quickly that they won’t return to their houses to even take clothing with them (Matt. 24:17-18). God will save an entire 1/3 of the Jews alive through the entire time of Jacob’s trouble (Zech. 13:8-9) by keeping them safe in a place prepared by God Himself (Rev. 12:6, 12:14; Isaiah 26:17-20). Their eyes will be opened by then (Rom. 11:25-26), and the third (total) come to Christ by the end of the tribulation to then enter the millennial kingdom in human physical form, where they will procreate and repopulate the earth. They will also enjoy hundreds of fulfilled prophecies God promised specifically to Israel.
During that horrific seven-year timeframe, the devil himself will indwell the antichrist beast. The antichrist will receive what appears to be a deadly head wound (Rev. 13:3, 13:12, 13:14). The antichrist is the first beast noted in Rev. 13:1.
The second beast is first noted in Rev. 13:11 (some call ‘the false prophet’). This beast will cause all to worship the first beast (antichrist) who receives the seemingly deadly head wound (Rev. 13:12).
But we can see in scripture who the world will actually be worshiping when they worship the image of the beast. It will be the ‘dragon’ himself. The devil (Rev. 13:4). The last half of the tribulation will be rife with satanic worship, as the antichrist is given the last 3.5 years (42 months) to continue in his evil plan (Rev. 13:5).
The devil cannot create anything, nor can he initiate his own plans. Instead, he attempts to make a mockery of God’s work and of God’s plans. When the antichrist receives what appears to be a deadly head wound, the deadly wound will appear to be healed. A false miracle. A false resurrection. A complete mockery of Christ’s actual resurrection.
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Rev.13:3).
The devil will fail miserably, as he is also cast into the lake of fire at the end of the thousand-year reign of Christ (Rev. 20:10). People today who joke and laugh about hell, do so at their own peril. Hell is real, and there will be no ‘party’ there. They also won’t enjoy the company of their friends (as they often like to brag that they think they will ‘party with their friends’). The devil himself cannot give them any special privileges either. It may come as a shock to many, but the devil doesn’t run hell. God created hell for the devil and his angels – those angels who rebelled against God (Matt.25:41).
God gave us all free will. Mankind willfully chose (of our own free will) to sin. Therefore, we were destined to hell because sin separates us from the Righteous and Holy God. Yet Jesus paid our penalty for us on the cross. His selfless sacrifice, His perfect and sinless body was offered up as atonement and propitiation for our sins. He has redeemed us to God. But we must believe and accept His payment on our behalf.
Jesus will never force anyone to accept His free offer of salvation. Anyone can come to Christ for forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation. Whosoever will. God gave us free will for this very reason. To choose either to believe on Christ for salvation or to reject His precious offer.
This free-will decision comes with consequences, though. For those who believe He promises eternal life with Him (John 3:15, 10:28-29, 17:3; Rom. 5:21, 6:23; 2 Cor. 5:1; Titus 1:2, 3:7; Heb. 9:12; 1 John 2:25, 5:11, 5:13, 5:20; Jude 1:21).
He has also promised believers an eternal, resurrected, and glorified body just like Jesus own body – that never wears out, never becomes diseased, never suffers, never mourns, and never again dies. (Phil. 3:20-21; 1 John 3:2, 1 Cor.15:36-57; Rom. 8:15-23; Rev.21:3-4, et al). Why not look up and read those scriptures listed? These are some mighty powerful promises. God never lies; His Righteous and Holy character precludes Him from lying (Titus 1:2, Heb. 6:18, Numbers 23:19, et al).
Knowing that it’s impossible for God to lie, and that His word is truth, we have more comfort than ever in the veracity and truthfulness of His promises to those who believe! (John 17:17; 2 Cor.6:7; Eph.1:13; Col. 1:5; 1 Thes. 2:13; 2 Tim. 2:15; James 1:18; Rev. 21:5; 2 Sam. 7:28, 22:31; Psalm 18:30, 33:4, 119:130, 138:2; Prov. 30:5, et al.)
Eternity will be truly wonderful for those who accept salvation in Christ. The scriptural promises are too numerous to list.
“Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever” (Psalm 119:160).
Yet a horrible eternity awaits those who reject Christ. They have traded eternal salvation on mere worldly lusts. On sin for a season, who mind worldly things for this short temporal life on earth (Phil. 3:18-19; 2 Thes. 1:8-9; Rev. 21:8; Jude 1:6-19; Matt. 13:49-50, 25:41, 25:46). In fact, many are enemies of the cross, viciously coming against Christians and striving against the word of God.
Just as those 250+ prophecies concerning Jesus’ first coming came to pass exactly as foretold, so also will the hundreds more prophetic words pertaining to His second coming come to pass. Exactly as described, exactly as foretold. In fierce and righteous wrath against a God-hating and Christ-rejecting world.
“Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them” (Isaiah 34:16).
There are no modern-day prophets. God’s word holds all the answers—His prophecy complete within the 66 books of the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation. He has already foretold the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:9-10, Psalm 119:160, et al).
“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).
Just as past Bible prophecy was fulfilled, so also will future prophesy be fulfilled exactly as foretold. We need not look elsewhere for the answers. They are all in God’s word!
These warning signs won’t go on forever, though. Just as a woman in travail, a woman who is ready to give birth only has but a limited amount of time before the birth occurs, so too are these birth-pain warnings not going to go on for an extended length of time. The question is: Have YOU heeded the warnings? Are you ready to go? Or will you be left behind on this earth to face the wrath of Almighty God?
Jesus has promised to deliver us (believers in this age) from the wrath to come (1 Thes. 1:10, Rom. 5:9, 1 Thes. 5:9). His word even tells us how He will deliver us (1 Cor. 15:49-53, 1 Thes. 4:13-18). The rapture. Believers will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. Jesus has prepared a place for us in His Father’s house (John 14:1-3).
He doesn’t wish for any to perish, but instead that all would come to Christ for forgiveness and salvation (2 Pet. 3:9). His amazing and wonderful grace has given all mankind an opportunity to come to Christ for the last 2,000 years. But that opportunity to be delivered from the wrath to come is soon ending. When this age of grace ends, believers will be taken up out of the way (2 Thes. 2:6-7, 1 Cor. 15:49-53, 1 Thes. 4:13-18), and Israel’s eyes will then be opened (Rom. 11:25-26).
Soon afterwards, the tribulation; the 70th week of Daniel; the wrath of the Lamb of God and the wrath of Almighty God will soon commence. You do not want to be here for that. Revelation 6-19 gives an overview of what’s to come. Over half of the world’s population will be dead before the midpoint of the tribulation – just 3.5 years into the 7-year tribulation (Rev. 6:8, 9:15-18). Those who survive into the second half of the tribulation will wish they hadn’t, as the mark of the beast is rolled out (Rev. 13:15-18) and worship of the image of the beast is mandated. Those who reject the mark and refuse to worship the image of the beast will be killed.
Worse… those who do accept the mark and/or worship the image of the beast will be eternally damned (Rev. 14:9-11). A person will still be able to come to Christ during the tribulation, but it will cost most of them their lives on earth (Rev. 6:9-11, 13:7, 20:4; Dan.7:21); most will be beheaded. Yet that still would be preferable to taking the mark of the beast only to live for a mere 3.5 years (or less) upon the earth and then be cast into hell (Rev. 14:9-11).
But better yet would be to come to Christ NOW, prior to the foretold “wrath to come” commencing.
How? Jesus died for your sins, was buried, and rose the third day (1 Cor. 15:1-4) – the gospel as declared in that scripture. BELIEF is the requirement (Rom. 3:22-26, 4:24-25, 10:9-10; John 3:15-18, 5:24, 17:19-21, 20:31; Acts 16:31; Gal.3:22; 1 John 5:13, et al). Believe that Jesus paid the penalty for your sin. Confess with your mouth (say out loud) that you believe He died for your sins, was buried, and rose the third day. And accept His gift of eternal salvation.
A church membership can’t get you to heaven; confessing to a priest or clergy member can’t get you to heaven (Matt. 23:8-12). Your own good works can’t get you into heaven (Eph. 2:8-9, Isaiah 64:6, Rom. 10:3, et al). Only Jesus’ righteousness imputed upon us can save us (Phil. 3:9, Rom. 4:24, et al). Jesus alone is the only acceptable propitiation – the payment for our sins, in our stead (Rom. 3:25, 1 John 4:10). Jesus alone (Acts 4:12, John 14:6, et al).
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Our sins MUST be dealt with before we pass from this world; we must come to Christ NOW while we still live and breathe. After our last breath on this earth, it will be too late. And no matter how good one thinks themself to be, we ALL have sinned, and we ALL need forgiveness and reconciliation to God.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23).
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom.6:23).
UNBELIEF is what causes a person to die in their sins, without forgiveness.
“I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24).
“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” (John 3:18).
You’ve been given an opportunity far greater than all the gold in the world. More precious than any worldly thing. Please don’t squander it on the pleasures of sin for a season. This life is so short and eternity so very long. Don’t trade your soul for this short sin season. Come to Christ now!
“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matt. 16:26).
“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14).
Life is too short to take a chance that “later” you may come to Christ. You may not have the opportunity tomorrow. You don’t know when you’ll take your last breath on this earth, as so many have died before old age. Don’t waste another minute! Time is short. The warning sound has gone out throughout the earth. The birth pains/beginning of sorrows is now at hand. Soon there will be time no more.
Last, I offer a word of encouragement for those in the trenches – those sounding the alarm loud and clear. Your work is not in vain in the Lord (1 Cor. 15:58).
While we are seeing fewer people coming to Christ now (here in most areas of the US) than ever before, it does cause some of us to get discouraged at times. But know this: Even if we do not see the fruits of our labor in this life, we will reap rewards for our tireless efforts in the next and eternal life.
The truth is that we believers are so close to the rapture and our catching up to be with the Lord. We know what follows for the world left behind. It breaks our hearts that so few are heeding the alarm. The tribulation will be far worse than most folks can wrap their head around or even begin to imagine. Yet sadly, many are not heeding the warning now.
It is my belief that we may very well be witnessing to those who are soon to enter the tribulation. Those folks will remember what we’ve told them after we’ve gone up in the rapture. Whatever lie is foisted upon the world’s left-behind population will be believed by those who have hardened their hearts (2 Thes. 2:10-12). God Himself will send them a strong delusion. In fact, most of those have already been given over to a reprobate mind (Rom. 1:18-32). We can see the unsaved world ever more turning violent against Christians today.
Yet there are those for whom the gospel is merely new information. They don’t truly understand (yet), and they’ve been indoctrinated into Darwinism, Marxism, and far-leftist, godless ideology from birth, through pre-school, grade school, middle school, high school, and college. Most of their peers and family members are indoctrinated with the same propaganda (sent from the devil) also. The atheist, humanist, and false ‘mother earth’ lie. Yet their heart isn’t hardened yet, and they are trying to find truth in a lying and deceitful world.
It is these folks to whom we continue to share the gospel (as well as the few who will come to Christ now, prior to the rapture). There is much hope that these will know and understand what has happened after the rapture occurs. They won’t buy the lie being propagated after our (grace/church-age believers) mass disappearance. They’ll remember that we warned them about the rapture; they’ll remember that we warned them about all the prophetic scripture foretelling the exact things that will soon be happening in the world.
Please keep that in mind as you witness to others today and in the short time we are still here. Even though we grieve knowing that those who come to Christ during the tribulation will suffer horrifically at the hands of the God-hating world (Rev. 6:9-11, 13:7; Dan. 7:21, et al), it’s still much better for their eternal souls that they come to Christ even then, rather than succumb to the eternity that awaits those who reject Christ.
So please, by all means, continue to Sound the Alarm! Continue sharing the gospel up until the very moment when we are called up to be with the Lord. We will be found doing our Father’s business and serving Christ Jesus when He comes to take us up!
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).
