Signs and Seals of the end Times

Part Three of Three


  • The Seventh Sign.


     This sign is the return of Christ Himself, nothing to be foretold here, because He will be seen in Jerusalem by all peoples and nations, at the same time.


     Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,


     After that tribulation. What tribulation is Christ talking about here? The five-month period that some of these signs have just warned us about. This is what’s going to happen AFTER that five-months has come to an end.


     Mark 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.


     Heaven is going to be shaken because our Lord is leaving.


     Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.


     Now, here’s what the XYs are saying about this time:


       “With the saints removed from the earth, a time of suffering will come upon the whole world.”


     We’re now at the seventh trump and our Lord is coming. Have we covered anything so far, ANYTHING that Christ has told us, that the saints, the believers, the overcomers, will be taken away or removed? Not that I’ve read.


     In all of these signs and seals, did Christ mention ANYTHING about the saints being taken away BEFORE He comes back? Not that I’ve read.


     If there was ever an appropriate place in the bible to have the Lord warn us of a coming rapture, SURELY it would be among the end-time events that we are now studying. 


     This rapture business is a farce, a bad joke with no laughter being heard, put together by Satan, using a sickly Scottish woman, 187 years ago.


     More from the XY’s:


       “The tribulation is a period of 7 years, the “70th week of Daniel.”


     And that is true, that is written. BUT, Christ changed that. Let’s read what Christ has to say about that 7-year tribulation:


     Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. KJV


     Let’s read it from Mark as well:


     Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. KJV


     Jesus is telling us that Satan/Antichrist will be so convincing, so complete in his deception, even those that have the seal of God in their head will be deceived, will begin to believe that this fraud IS the true messiah.


     And this begs the question: how long has that 7-years been shortened to?


     Revelation 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. KJV.


     And we are given this a second time from our Lord:


     Revelation 9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. KJV


  • The Seventh Seal.


     Revelation 8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. KJV


     Father gives us events that happen in a timeframe that is a little different than ours. For instance, the Lord’s Day is a 1000-year period of time called the Millennium. We found that one day with the Father is as 1000 years:


     2nd Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. KJV


     The hour of temptation is the five-month tribulation of Satan/Antichrist:


     Revelation 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.KJV


     If you keep His Word, live by His Commandments as best you can and understand that the first jesus is the false messiah, the Antichrist, then He will keep you from all harm during this time. How are you doing? Do you believe it? Do you believe the truth as quickly as you believe a lie?


     There we have the seven signs and seven seals that give us the warnings of what will be happening in this world just before our  Lord returns to us. These are all going to be happening in real time.


     Some of them have been ongoing, and repeating, for many, many years and some will occur just the one time. Let’s highlight them, briefly, just one more time, for conciseness and clarity:



  • First sign:      Mark 13:5, 6                False preachers, coming in His name.


  • First Seal:    Revelation 6:1, 2         Satan/Antichrist coming to deceive.


  • Second Sign  Mark 13:7                   Wars and rumors of wars.


  • Second Seal  Revelation 6:3, 4        Take peace from the earth.



  • Third Sign   Mark 13:8                    Earthquakes, famines, troubles increasing.

  • Third Seal   Revelation 6:5, 6         Inflation and a weak economy.



  • Fourth Sign    Mark 13:9                 Brought before councils of Satan/Antichrist.


  • Fourth Seal    Revelation 6:7, 8      Continued famines and troubles.



  • Fifth Sign         Mark 13:10               Gospel spread electronically worldwide.


  • Fifth Seal         Revelation 6:9           Souls under the altar that come with our Lord.



  • Sixth Sign        Mark 13:11                Holy Spirit speaking through us at councils.


  • Sixth Seal        Revelation 6:12, 13   Satan and 7000 fallen angels cast to earth.



  • Seventh Sign   Mark 13:24-26          Christ’s return.


  • Seventh Seal   Revelation 8:1           Christ’s return, silence in heaven ½ hour.



     CAN you recognize them? WILL you recognize them when they occur? The first three have been on-going for many, many years and the last four should be glaring, in your face, events because they will have NEVER happened before in the history of mankind.


     I mentioned, at the start of this study, that we would answer and debunk several beliefs of the XY’s, so let’s do that now.


     There is no such thing as the rapture:


     They used four verses to substantiate their claim:


     1st Thessalonians 4:16, 17 and 1st Corinthians 15:51, 52


     We’re going to start with verse 13 to pick up on the subject that Paul is talking about.


     1st Thessalonians 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.


     This thought that when we die our soul remains in the grave with the flesh body is nothing new. There was much talk about it back in the days of Paul so he took the time to write this letter to the Thessalonians to clear things up. They only attached the word RAPTURE to it after the Brethren heard Margaret MacDonald talk about this evil dream that she had, back in 1830. Paul wrote about it back in 52 or 52 A.D.


     Let me remind you that the word asleep is a figure of speech for someone that is dead.


  • Sleep_NT:2837 koimao (koy-mah'-o); from NT:2749; to put to sleep, i.e. (passively or reflexively) to slumber; figuratively, to decease:


     To be dead. It bothered these folks that their loved ones were lying in the ground and they had no hope of them going back to be with the Lord.


     Paul is saying:


     “Hang on a sec, you’re believing in something that isn’t true.”


     1st Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.


     They all pretty much believed that Christ rose from the grave (sepulcher) and Paul is saying that if you believe that Jesus rose from the grave, that His soul went back to the Father, as Ecclesiastes 12:7 tells us it did, then if someone died, while believing that, that the Lord would BRING them with Him when He returns.


     IF they overcame in this life. If they didn't, they'll be held on the left side of the gulf awaiting the Millennial period or Judgment Day.


     It didn’t say ANYTHING about Jesus resurrecting them from the grave, it said that He would BRING them with Him when He comes which MUST mean that they are already up in Paradise with Him.


     And we know that they are, based on what our Lord said to that thief hanging on the cross beside Him when He said that today you will be with Me in Paradise:


     Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. KJV


     And Jesus wasn’t talking about the flesh and blood body of the thief because we know that, according to Ecclesiastes 12:7, the flesh and blood body goes back to the minerals, the dust, that it was made from at the start.


    So, right now, we can rest assured that the soul of that thief is absolutely in Paradise with the Lord.


     And, do you remember in Revelation where it says that there are thousands and thousands under the altar of our Father who died, in this life, in this flesh and blood body, for believing in Christ? Let’s look at that:


     Revelation 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:


     Revelation 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?


     Their flesh and blood body was, at one time, here on earth, because they were killed for believing in Christ. Remember those Christians in the Middle East that are being murdered for their belief in Jesus Christ. Who is killing them? The Kenites.


     Alright, let’s go to the next verse…


     1st Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. KJV


     By the word of the Lord. These are not the words of some preacher or some church organization or a bible-study group in someone’s home, these are the words of Christ.


     We which are alive. Those of us that are still walking around in these flesh and blood bodies, this is the mystery that Paul wrote about in Corinthians:


     1st Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, KJV.


     The mystery is that there will be many people walking around in flesh and blood bodies, about 7.2 billion of us, when Christ returns and at that instant, we will all be changed from these earthly bodies into our spiritual bodies.


     Shall not prevent them which are asleep. What does this word prevent mean?


    ✡  Prevent_ NT:5348 phthano (fthan'-o); apparently a primary verb; to be beforehand, i.e. anticipate or precede; by extension, to have arrived at:


     We, those of us that are still here on earth, cannot join back with Christ BEFORE they do because they are already with Him. Under that altar, waiting to have the blood they shed avenged.


     And let’s finish with the second verse from 1st Corinthians 15:


     1st Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. KJV


     And the dead shall be raised incorruptible.  Raised incorruptible because it's changed into a spiritual body. Paul had previously been teaching us about our two bodies: one is earthly, the other is heavenly. One is mortal, the other is immortal. One is corruptible, the other is incorruptible.


     What you must remember is that mortal / immortal ALWAYS refers to the spiritual body; corruptible / incorruptible ALWAYS refers to our flesh and blood body.


     Let’s nail this down once and for all. What does corruptible mean?


     ✡ Corruptible_ NT:5356 phthora (fthor-ah'); from NT:5351; decay, i.e. ruin (spontaneous or inflicted, literally or figuratively):


     ✡ Root Word_ NT:5351 phtheiro (fthi'-ro); probably strengthened from phthio (to pine or waste); properly, to shrivel or wither, i.e. to spoil (by any process) or (generally) to ruin (especially figuratively, by moral influences, to deprave):


     Your flesh and blood body, which is what the word dead is referring to in verse 52, can and will wither up and die, be it from disease, accident or natural death.


     It is raised incorruptible, which means a spiritual body, one that WILL NOT wither up or get sick or perish, unending existence, which means that you have now transcended from your flesh and blood body into your spiritual body and what happens to your spiritual body, your soul, when the earthly body dies?


     It goes right back to the Father that gave it in the first place. And where are those spiritual bodies, those souls, if they have overcome in this life? Under the altar of God waiting to be avenged. And they will be avenged when they return with Christ.


     Incorruptible_861  aphthrsia (af-thar-see'-ah); from 862; incorruptibility; genitive case unending existence; (figuratively) genuineness: KJV-- immortality, incorruption, sincerity.


    Root Word_862  aphthartos (af'-thar-tos); from 1 (as a negative particle) and a derivative of 5351; undecaying (in essence or continuance): KJV-- not (in-, un-) corruptible, immortal.


     Dead = flesh and blood body;


     Incorruptible = spiritual body.


     The soul does not remain in the grave, with the flesh body, awaiting a rapture.


     1st Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:


     The dead in Christ shall rise first.


     We have just seen, in Corinthians 15:52, that these dead are already up in Paradise with the Father, under that altar, waiting to come with Him.


     1st Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. KJV


     Alive and remain. Those of us that are here awaiting His return.


     Caught up together with them in the clouds. This is not a figure of speech, in the true sense, but it is a different way of speaking. Paul was not only highly knowledgeable in the Scriptures, having studied under Gamaliel, he also spoke fluent Greek and when the need arose, he could speak street Greek.


     Today he might be called a homey, a bro, someone that could speak the language of the streets. So when he says clouds, in street lingo, he meant a large group of people or as one would refer to a large group of locust as a cloud of locusts. Although the word cloud actually means cloud, that in and of itself is not that unusual, if you have studied the Scriptures a great deal.


     To meet the Lord in the air. Another instance of a Greek word not meaning exactly what the transcribers have assigned to it.


    ✡  Air_ NT:109 aer (ah-ayr'); from aemi (to breathe unconsciously, i.e. respire; by analogy, to blow); "air" (as naturally circumambient):


     It’s referring to psuche or the spiritual body, as when our Father breathed a soul into a flesh body at the time of conception:


     Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. KJV


     Properly translated, it means that a large group of people will meet the Lord in spiritual bodies which is exactly what happens at the last or seventh trump:


     1st Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. KJV


     And there we are. Right back at the beginning; we have come full circle.


     We cannot go any further back into the original languages to explain the meaning of the English words that the translators assigned to the Greek or Hebrew words. And almost all words in the Greek or Hebrew or Aramaic have more than one meaning so I can only presume to understand the difficulty these learned men had to translate all that they did and with such accuracy.


     Now do you see why it is soooo easy to just sit there in that pew and let some one else do your thinking for you? Satan understands this all too well. He counts on you being lazy. It's a part of HIS plan.


     “Oh, I’ll just sit here and listen to my preacher, he knows soooo much more about the Bible.”


     And because of your laziness, your weakness, you have just condemned your soul to the lake of fire because you will believe and follow Satan/Antichrist, thinking that he is the true christ.


     Do people today even want to put forth the effort to search the Scriptures and come up with all this? Hardly. Most people will probably not even take the time to read what is written here, much less dig into the Bible, the Concordance, an Interlinear and a good dictionary to do their own research and come up with these truths.


     That’s why our Father sent teachers. Of which I am not. I'm just an old man with a bad attitude and a lot to get off his chest.


     Paul wrote all of this in his first letter to the Thessalonians, explaining it just as we have studied it, and STILL people messed around with it and turned some of it into a lie, which is the reason that he wrote his second letter, to try to clear up the mess from the Kenites screwing up the truth in the first.


     So, there we have it. I could go on and find many more examples of why the rapture theory is a lie but if you haven't grasped some truth by now, maybe the Father has placed the cloak of innocency over you and you'll be protected until the time of the Millennium. Which comes after His return and Father will get you safely through it.


     I said at the beginning of this series that I would debunk some of the lies taught and believed by 70 million plus people that are a part of the XY, so let's wrap it up by doing just that.


  • The tribulation will not be 7 years or 3 ½ years:


     Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. KJV


     Shortened to:


      Revelation 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. KJV


     That's the time of the tribulation of Satan/Antichrist and, by the way, there are TWO TRIBULATIONS, not one. The first is by Satan/Antichrist and the second will be by our Father and that one will only last just a few minutes.


     And those five months are from May through September.


  • Jesus Christ will return at a time that is known to mankind.


       We do not know the year but our Father has given us enough information throughout His letter to us that we can put two and two together and determine the SEASON of the year, that season being May through September.


       The reason that Satan/Antichrist will be so successful in deceiving the entire world is because people do not think for themselves. They let preachers tell them what to believe when their very soul is put in jeopardy by doing so.


       And many let the government tell them what they can or cannot do, in essence, taking away their freedom, in exchange for a paltry sum of money. Wall Street and the politicians fill their bank accounts with billions of dollars while they pay less that the minimum wage to people willing to sell their freedoms.


  • The Antichrist will not be a human being.


     Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) KJV


     Satan/Antichrist is the abomination and he will be standing in Jerusalem claiming to be the messiah. He is also called the desolator.


     In 2nd Thessalonians St. Paul states that two things must happen before the Lord’s return:


     2nd Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;


     Is there any way possible that Barak Obama or President Putin or Pope Francis or George Clooney could be called the son of perdition?


     Of course not. That’s not only unreasonable, it’s just plain stupid. So, who is the man of sin, also called, the son of perdition? We can find that out by looking at what perdition means:


    ✡  Perdition_NT:684 apoleia (ap-o'-li-a); from a presumed derivative of NT:622; ruin or loss (physical, spiritual or eternal):


     His name is also given to us in Revelation and it's a derivative of apoleia.


    Revelation 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. KJV


     ✡ Apollyon_NT:622 Apolluon (ap-ol-loo'-ohn); active participle of NT:622; a destroyer (i.e. Satan):


     Is it not clear that the Antichrist will not be a human being?


     It would seem that our new president, Mr. Trump,  is not only putting the interests of America before all others but his constant declaration that he is willing to work with ALL nations, ALL foreign leaders, MAY have some groups postulating that HE might be the Antichrist? 


     Eventually they will, they did it with Obama. They did it with the Pope. President Trump will not turn out to be the son of perdition. Satan is that entity.


     With so many people resolute that the Antichrist will be a human being, it verges on brainwashing, occultism. The power of Satan is equally as strong as that of the Holy Spirit, how can so many souls turn to and believe in Satan over the High Spirit?


  • The Millennium will not be a time of perfect relationships.


     Those souls that did not overcome in this life, because they had the cloak of innocency placed over them by our Father, will be taught and given discipline during that time, not an opportunity to form perfect relationships. They COULD have found the truth if they had just put forth a little effort.


     Many of us have done that and are doing that right now but through grace and the never ending love of our Father, those souls will also be afforded the opportunity to receive the truth without the interference of Satan and his dominion.


     Many of us did find the truth in spite of Satan and his dominion. That’s why our Father says that we’re special. I’ll just come out and say that. We are special. We love the truth; we desire the truth; we seek the truth and that’s why we are called saints and His Elect.


     Souls are not in the Millennium to form perfect relationships, they are there to learn, to be instructed, to be taught that which they were too lazy to learn on their own in this life. Their preacher will not be there to lead them, the Election will teach them. Much like a drill instructor in the military, I hope. And I also hope that I'm one of those instructors.


     There will be no churches, no pews to rest their fat asses on, while they whisper and gossip about those that show up in plainer clothing than what they wear, absent of expensive jewelry like they wear.


     What these plain people do show up with is a pure heart, a desire to hear the Word of our Father and all they get is Satan's bible preached to them. Preached by salvation and prosperity, so-called men of the cloth. Our Father says that it's heresy to preach salvation to those that are already saved. It's akin to crucifying Him all over again. It's a slap in His face.


     I remember sitting in my father-in-law's church one Sunday morning. The service was over, he had walked down in front of the people standing there, as he did every Sunday, and gave the invocation to come forward and either be saved or rededicate your life.


     The choir began to sing that hymn, Just as I Am, while we stood there and waited. We sang EVERY verse of that song...every verse. No one came forward. We sang EVERY verse a second time, and yet, no one came forward.


     I looked around at that gathering of people and I recognized every face there. They had been coming every Sunday for years. EVERYONE was saved and yet we continued to sing. My knees became weak and started to tremble.


     He was determined to save someone that Sunday morning and I almost went down that aisle myself, just to end the the torment, but I knew that would not be the right thing to do. 


     The Millennium is not the time for perfect relationships, the eternity is.


  • There will not be children born during the Millennium.


      The Millennium will not begin until after our Lord stands in Jerusalem and we have found out, in this lecture, that the moment He does return, we will all transcend into spiritual bodies.


     These bodies are no longer flesh and blood, therefore, the desires of the flesh have disappeared. The only reason our Father put sexual desires in these earthly bodies was to facilitate the placement of other waiting souls into other earthly bodies as they are born over the following millennia.


     Our spiritual bodies are not equipped with the sexual apparatus to even have sex with one another after our Lord returns. We know that the spiritual bodies of the first heaven/earth age DID have that apparatus because those fallen angels had sexual relationships with the daughters of Adam and children were born as a result.


     Those children were called Geber.


  • Souls that go to the Lake of Fire will not be in agony for ever.


     This belief comes from Revelation 20:10...

     Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. KJV


     Tormented day and night for ever and ever is a figure of speech. It's not literal.


     First of all,  spiritual bodies are perfect. They don’t get sick, break a bone and they do not feel pain.  You cannot harm a spiritual body with fire so what would Father's purpose be to put those souls in a place of burning fire if it had no effect on them?


     Secondly, Satan will be cast there as well and we read in Ezekiel that his death is like turning to ashes from within:

     Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes.

     Another figure of speech that means dead, forever. Blotted out. Perished.

     Thirdly, there will be no more seas or lakes or oceans, figuratively, spiritually or physically:

     Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. KJV

     We also have to understand that those souls that do go into the Lake of Fire will experience the second death, the death of their soul.

     And, lastly, how could there be peace in heaven if we were aware that some family members did not make it, and are being tortured eternally by a God that is supposed to be full of love? Does that sound like something a God of love and compassion would do to His children? No, of course not. It's a figure of speech.

     We might be able to kill someone in a flesh and blood body but only our Father can kill or destroy a spiritual body:

     Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. KJV




     Fear disappears when the truth is unveiled and our Lord has unveiled several truths right here, for the world to read and understand.


     Remember that there is a huge difference between fear and exhilaration, between frightfulness and excitement. And if you truly believe that our Lord will get you through these times, without anything hurting you, then you’ll be ok.


     Pick up your bible, read familiar scriptures, reread these events in Mark, Matthew and Luke, let them reassure your soul and it will respond with great fervor.


     Your soul is your link to the unseen world of our Father and our Lord. It’s been through both heaven/earth ages so far and I’m sure that when the war in heaven occurred in the first, it was equally full of tension.


     But that gave us experience, our soul can say to us: we’ve been there, done that.


     And our Father tells us that He will be with us as well. What greater assurances can we ask for?


     We began this study by reading the established lies that are taught to over 70 million people in one particular church system. And through it all, we have yet to find any evidence of a rapture, or flying away or Christ coming at any moment.


     No, we don’t know the year of His return but we do know the time of the year and it will be AFTER the summer months when the crops are ready to be harvested. Christ will come at the end of that summer, during harvest time.


     Satan/Antichrist will come at the beginning of that summer and if you believe him to be the true Messiah, you will be harvested out of season because the first one taken from the field will be those that believe in the false messiah.


     You have enough knowledge right now to keep you from being harvested out of season. If you accepted the lies of some religious system, can you accept and believe the words of our Lord? He will not and cannot lie to us.


     The advocates of the rapture theory, the XY's, use four verses to back up their theories. Look at the above words that we have just written/studied/researched, from many places in the Scripture, and see that there is witness, that these theories are a lie.


     It’s all up to you from this point forward. It’s your decision to make.


     It was all too easy for you to accept the lies, how easy will it be for you to accept the truth?

     P.S.....Today is the 25th of February 2018 and Passover will be coming up shortly. Our Lord told us to be watchmen and I would implore you to keep your eye on the events happening in the Middle East between now and Passover.



__20 January 2017_
