Just Passing Through - He Is At The Door

Understand the Matter and Consider the Vision- Even at the Door Part Two

Daniel as no other prophet was shown the future of nations and empires – all the way through to the coming of the Lord. This great prophet pinpointed the rise of the Antichrist, the location of the empire, “the seat of the beast,” as well as so many of the particulars leading up to the Second Coming of Christ. One cannot understand the book of Revelation, the end times, the Great Tribulation, the rise and power of the Antichrist, unless one understands the role of Israel in Bible prophecy. In that vein, no other book outlines Israel’s role in end time events like that of the Jewish prophet Daniel, who was so exact in his arguments as the Holy Spirit directed him that some so-called scholars have even tried to argue that Daniel did not really write the book that bears his name. The description of world events, especially in Daniel chapter 11, was so minutely accurate; many felt no one could have written them before the fact thus many scoffers doubt Daniel wrote this description prior to the events happening so far in advance.

TEXT: Daniel 9:23
At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.

Matthew 24:33 - So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the door

The Word of God alone holds the answer to the future whether that future be related to America, the World, or Israel. The Bible alone tells where man came from and where man is going and to ignore it is to ignore the Truth, meaning simply there is no other Truth man can hold on to but the Word of Almighty God.

It is a terrible shame that many Christians are ignorant about end time events. Most are ignorant because they don’t take the time to study those things that pertain to prophetic events that are on the soon horizon; others are willfully ignorant of these things not wishing to know; others simply don’t care. No matter the reason our desire in writing these recent journals in the coming days and weeks will be to inspire you that do visit our website TO study and find out for yourself what the Bible says about coming events. Many may care about the things of this present world, but friend let me assure you that this world is perishing and fading away, yet the things of God and of the Holy Ghost are ETERNAL and the Spirit and the Bride say “COME” quickly Lord Jesus! My Lord, I feel the anointing of God on those statements.

I can see John the Revelator on the Isle of Patmos as I write this with tears I’m sure in his eyes after witnessing the apocalypse of the ages having written down every word instructed by God to do so and crying deep within “EVEN SO COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS!” Neighbor, He’s Coming! Let me rephrase that. He’s coming SOON! Glory to God. Devils won’t stop it; a backslidden church won’t stop him; apostate Christianity won’t stop it; Islam won’t stop Him; Catholicism won’t stop Him; the U.N. won’t be able to hold an emergency session and stop Him; GLORY TO GOD – He’s COMING! And as I write this journal in the wee hours of the morning I pray you have made your calling and election sure in these final hours as we rapidly approach the end of the church age and draw closer to the rapture of the church and the dawn of Antichrist, the Great Tribulation period, Israel’s last day travail and the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth at the Battle or Armageddon.

The events which are taking place presently as it regards ISRAEL, which people, incidentally, are God’s prophetic time clock, are vividly and without reservation screaming to the church and the world in general that the fulfillment of these great prophecies given by men of old, Daniel included, are already in the beginning stages of fulfillment. As Jesus told His disciples, “when you see these things happening, them know my Coming is near, EVEN AT THE DOOR!”

Israel becoming a nation in 1948 even after nearly 2,000 years of wondering all over the world as vagabonds, was a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy of astounding proportions. All of these things the angel Gabriel would share with Daniel in this tremendous blueprint for the student of prophecy as it relates to the end time and more specifically Israel, could not have been fulfilled until Israel had once again become a nation and state. Yet, this sign, which is so glaringly obvious, is ignored by the world and sadder yet, by most of the modern Church. Replacement theologists blow off the Bible in their stupidity and delusion in seeking to remove Israel from her future place in Bible prophecy; a stance that millions hold to in the modern church atmosphere where temporal issues have taken center stage over eternal ones.

Friend, let me tell you this. There are no greater times of history past, or future, that hold greater significance than the one we’re living in RIGHT now. Think about that. When the apostles wrote the New Covenant and saw the end of the church age, they saw two main events that would transpire – the restoration of Israel and the apostasy of the church. The prophets saw Israel while in reality the apostles saw more of the conditions in the church. One of the signs of the last days would be strong delusion that would sit in upon many who once held the faith yet, as Paul says, would DEPART from that faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

We witnessed the power of seducing spirits this past election. Untold MILLIONS were duped into believing the rhetoric of one of the slickest talking candidates in modern history while ignoring red flag after red flag that this man held many beliefs that were blatantly pro-baby killing and pro-homosexual; stances that will most assuredly bring judgment upon this nation. The shedding of innocent blood will be a noose hung around America’s neck soon and the blood of nearly 50 million babies is coming home to roost. Many voted for their race and betrayed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Many voted their pocket book and betrayed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Many voted for “change” and promises of “peace” when no peace is coming and the change that will transpire over the next year or two should the Lord tarry will sweep this nation up into a vacuum that may very well mean the end of America’s sovereignty and cause it to now be aligned with other nations of the world in this coming one-world governmental system seen by the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel and the apostles Paul and John.

Israel’s restoration to her land, her becoming a State, and the events which are transpiring presently (including the events of 1989, 1991 and 2001) are, again as we stated, screaming to the Church that, first of all, the Church Age is about to end, which means the Rapture of the Church is EVEN AT THE DOOR!

Yet the Church is concerned very little if at all about these things; But friend hear this writer today. We’d better start concerning ourselves with these things and concerning ourselves QUICKLY!

Daniel the Prophet

As Daniel sought the Lord concerning Israel’s restoration to her land even in his day (Israel had been taken to Babylon because of sin), he is a shining example as to the attitude we should have TODAY that we too should be ardently seeking the Lord, that He might come. As I stated earlier, the pathos of John the Revelator’s heart which I believed was birthed by the Holy Spirit himself when he said “EVEN SO COME QUICKLY Lord Jesus,” should be the prayer of the modern church.

John’s prayer actually referred to the Second Coming of Christ; our prayer as the Church should be the same concerning the Rapture, the BLESSED HOPE. The sadness is most of the modern church has stopped believing in a rapture at all. MOST seek to repudiate it as just an “escape” theory by a segment of the Body. Others twist scripture to fit their deluded ideas while others seem bent on causing the church to believe it’s need is to pile up canned goods and hide in caves during the days of the Antichrist instead of preparing itself for the RESSURECTION of the saints, which is in fact the RAPTURE of the Church! Titus said this glorious appearing is a blessed HOPE! It’s not a political hope where men and women pull the lever in a voting booth for promises of prosperity and money in their wallet but it’s a hope for ETERNAL things – a home in heaven where moth and rust don’t corrupt and thieves never break through or steal. It’s a HOPE that John says “PURIFIES” those who embrace it meaning those who believe in a rapture live their lives daily making sure there is no sin in their heart that is unconfessed or unrepented of. They don’t live with one foot in the world and the other in the church! The live with one focus and that is on JESUS and knowing that at any second, He could appear!

This hope purifies us in believing that this world system is NOT our home, we’re just a passing through. Our treasures are laid up, somewhere beyond the blue! The angels beckon me, from heaven’s open shore and I can’t feel at HOME in this world anymore! Oh, Lord, you know I have no friend like you! If heaven is not my home, then Lord what will I do. The ANGELS beckon me, from heaven’s open shore and I can’t feel at home in this world any more. You know I sang that song at my mother’s funeral three years ago now; The tears flowed down my cheeks like a river that day as they are at very moment I write these words partly because of my sorrow she is gone and we still miss her deeply in our heart and soul, but also knowing that the time is short and though we said goodbye to our mom three years ago for now it won’t be long before we would say HELLO again! Glory to God, Hallelujah to the Lamb! Are you hearing me neighbor!? Is this hope in you today? Are you washed in the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb; are your garments spotless, are they white as snow? Oh, be washed in the blood of the Lamb! Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power, are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Are your garments SPOTLESS, are they white as snow? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

I want to go on but I feel the Holy Spirit has said, “this is enough” for this part. Neighbor, the message of the Cross is the LAST message to the Church! The Church must come back to the Cross for when it does the scales of deception and delusion will fall off our eyes and we will see the late nature of this hour. As Daniel said in his prophetic utterances, we “consider the vision and understand this matter!” Do you consider these things today to be worthy of your understanding? Do you have this hope inside of you today of His soon coming? How long has it been neighbor since you found a quiet place and knelt at His feet asking Him is there anything between my soul and my Saviour? How long has it been since you’ve talked to the Lord and asked Him of your soul’s state today. Have you poured your heart out to Him and told Him how much you are yearning for His Coming and appearing and as John said be able to say we are “not ashamed” to see Him!

Listen, not being ashamed does not mean you will stand before Him perfect but through His blood you WILL be perfect! His blood can wash away every stain. He’s coming back for a GLORIOUS church without spot or wrinkle! The issue is this though. The church cannot make itself GLORIOUS through its own works and efforts. We are made glorious by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are made clean by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are made WHOLE by the blood of the Lamb! Glory to God! The Cross makes us ready for the rapture! The CROSS makes the church see its condition and fall at the feet of the Soon Coming King and declare we are sinful and wicked without His grace and covering.

Where is the state of your soul today friend? What is the condition of your heart? We’re not promised tomorrow and even more sore now than ever the days ahead forebode trouble for all who live on Planet Earth. Our next journal will deal in detail with what Daniel saw and said about the coming Tribulation period and outline the reasons as the Holy Ghost gave them to him. These events are even at the door and soon to take place.

I pray you know the Living Christ today. I pray you know the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the World. He’s coming friend and the rapture is even at the door. May John’s prayer in Revelation be your prayer today – “even so come quickly, Lord Jesus!”

It's getting late neighbor and it's harvest time!

There may be less then a year till it is illegal in our country and the world to bring people to Christ !

Listen to why you need to EXAMINE YOURSELF to see if you are saved,

or have been fooled by Satan's counterfeits who are yet asleep

and won't wake up til the soon coming darkness is here where no man can work for Christ. The Anti-Christ will overcome them with his power unto DEATH !
