The Rapture To Be or Not To Be | Episode 777


MUSIC ANNOUNCER: WELCOME TO MANNA-FEST HOSTED BY INTERNATIONAL EVANGELIST, TEACHER AND AUTHOR, PERRY STONE. ENJOY UNIQUE INSIGHT INTO PROPHETIC AND PRACTICAL TRUTHS. IT’S TIME TO FEAST ON FRESH MANNA SO GET READY TO BE BLESSED AND ENCOURAGED. AND NOW HERE IS YOUR HOST AND TEACHER, PERRY STONE… PERRY: I WANT TO WELCOME YOU AGAIN TO MANNA-FEST. WE HAVE AN EXCITING PROGRAM FOR YOU TODAY. I’M CONTINUING PART FOUR OF OUR SERIES OF “UNDERSTANDING THE THEORY OF THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE”. I HOPE YOU HAVE NOT MISSED A SINGLE PROGRAM BECAUSE WE’VE BEEN LAYING FOUNDATIONS ON THE WORD “RAPTURE”, WHERE IT CAME FROM; WE’VE BEEN SHOWING YOU OTHER WORDS THAT CAN BE USED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT TO DESCRIBE THIS GREAT EVENT OF THE GATHERING TOGETHER OF THE SAINTS AND THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD IN CHRIST, AND WE WANT TO CONTINUE OUR STUDY AND WE’RE GOING TO BE SHARING SOMETHING WITH YOU THAT I THINK YOU’RE GOING TO FIND VERY INTRIGUING. I TRY TO LISTEN TO WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING AS IT RELATES TO ARGUMENTS. IN OTHER WORDS PEOPLE WILL SAY, YOU’RE TEACHING THIS BUT THIS IS NOT RIGHT. YOU’RE SAYING THIS, BUT THIS IS NOT TRUE. AND SO I WANT TO HEAR, OKAY WHAT DO YOU SAY, WHAT ARE YOU COMMENTING ON, BECAUSE YOU KNOW HERE’S THE THING. THERE ARE SOMETIMES THAT PEOPLE COULD COMMENT ON SOMETHING AND GIVE YOU A LIGHT OR AN EXPLANATION THAT YOU DID NOT KNOW. I ALWAYS ENCOURAGE PEOPLE. MY PARTNERS KNOW THIS. I TELL MY PARTNERS, LOOK WHEN I TEACH OR PREACH LINE IT UP BY SCRIPTURE, RESEARCH IT YOURSELF. AND YOU KNOW I’VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY NOW, YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO THE MINISTER TO EVERYTHING HE’S SAYING. WELL IF THE GUY IS WAY OVER THERE IN SOMETHING THAT’S NOT BIBLICAL YOU DON’T WANT TO LISTEN TO IT. SO WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO DO TODAY IS BACK UP THIS TEACHING BY THE PURE WORD OF GOD AND THAT’S WHAT WE’VE DONE IN THE PAST THREE PROGRAMS. NOW, ONE OF THE ARGUMENTS IS THIS AND I’VE HEARD THIS FOR YEARS. THOSE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN THE RAPTURE ARE SIMPLY BELIEVING IN AN ESCAPE FROM TROUBLE. IT IS AN ESCAPIST TEACHING. CAN I TELL YOU THIS, ARE YA’LL READY FOR THIS REVELATION? YOU GOT THAT RIGHT FRIEND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT IT IS. IT IS AN ESCAPE FROM THE DAY OF WRATH. NOW SOMEONE SAYS, OH YEP, I KNEW IT, I KNEW IT ALL THE TIME THOSE RAPTURE PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO ESCAPE ALWAYS TRYING TO GET OUT OF HERE BEFORE HELL BREAKS OUT. LET ME TELL YOU WHAT MY DADDY AND I HAVE SAID FOR YEARS. WHEN WE GREW UP AND HEARD PREACHING ON THE COMING OF THE LORD WE WOULD HEAR THINGS LIKE THIS…YOU KNOW A GUY WOULD GRAB A MIC AT A BIG MEETING, HE’D SAY, I’M NOT LOOKING FOR THE UNDERTAKER, I’M LOOKING FOR THE UPPER TAKER. AND HE WOULD HAVE THESE ONE LINE CLICHÉS AND EVERYBODY WOULD WHEW, GLORY HALLELUJAH, AMEN! MY DAD AND I BOTH HAVE ALWAYS TAUGHT PEOPLE THAT YOU DON’T KNOW HOW BAD IT GETS UNTIL JESUS COMES BACK. IN OTHER WORDS, WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN TAUGHT EVERYTHING IS GOING TO GO GREAT AND PERFECT, BAM, ALL OF A SUDDEN JESUS IS GOING TO SHOW UP AND THEN ALL OF HELL IS GOING TO BREAK LOOSE. REALLY THERE’S TWO THINGS I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU. NUMBER ONE: IF WE’RE IN BIRTH PAINS (MATTHEW 24:8-THEN THERE’S GOING TO BE WARS, RUMORS OF WARS, FAMINES, PESTILENCE AND EARTHQUAKES) THAT’S TROUBLE! SO THERE’S GOING TO BE TROUBLE. HOW MUCH OF IT WE SEE BEFORE THE COMING OF CHRIST, WE DON’T KNOW. THE OTHER THING I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU THAT ITS VERY IMPORTANT IN LINE WITH THIS IDEA OF ESCAPING BEFORE ANY KIND OF TROUBLE COMES, JESUS SAID, IN THE WORLD YOU’LL HAVE TRIBULATION, BE OF GOOD CHEER, I’VE OVERCOME THE WORLD. THAT VERSE DOES NOT MEAN YOU’RE GOING TO GO THROUGH THE GREAT TRIBULATION. TRIBULATION MEANS TRIAL, ANXIETY, STRESSES OF LIFE, CARES OF LIFE, DIFFICULTIES. WE ALL ARE BORN…JOB SAYS IT THIS WAY. A MAN BORN TO WOMAN IS A FEW DAYS FULL OF TROUBLE. HOWEVER THIS TIME OF TRIBULATION IS NOT NORMAL THAT WE’RE COMING TO PROPHETICALLY IN THE BIBLE. IT IS A TIME OF THE LAMB’S WRATH AND A TIME OF GOD’S WRATH. NOW THE PRINCIPAL OF SCRIPTURE, THIS IS IMPORTANT YOU HEAR THIS, IS THAT THE RIGHTEOUS ARE NOT JUDGED IN THE TIME OF WRATH IN THE SAME MANNER OF THE UNRIGHTEOUS, GOD PROVIDES THE RIGHTEOUS A WAY OF ESCAPE. NOW THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS NO TEMPTATION OR TESTING TAKING YOU BUT SUCH AS COMMON TO MAN FOR GOD WOULD NOT SUFFER YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT WHICH YOU’RE ABLE BUT WILL WITH THE TEMPTATION MAKE A WAY OF ESCAPE THAT YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO BEAR IT. JESUS SAID, PRAY THAT YE BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS THAT ARE COMING TO PASS ON THE EARTH AND TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN. NOW FOR SOMEONE TO SAY THE RAPTURE IS AN ESCAPISM, THE RAPTURE IS DESIGNATED FOR THE OVERCOMER. READ REVELATION CHAPTERS TWO AND THREE THE SEVEN BLESSINGS OF THE OVERCOMER, IT’S A BLESSING FOR THE OVERCOMER. GOD IS GOING TO HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE FAITHFULLY FOLLOWED HIM, SERVED HIM, TRUSTED HIM, GAVE WITNESS AND BEEN OBEDIENT TO HIM BY ALLOWING THEM TO ESCAPE THE TIME OF TROUBLE THAT IS COMING. NOW YOU SAY, I DON’T BELIEVE THAT! OKAY LET ME GIVE YOU SOME VERSES IN THE BIBLE ABOUT ESCAPE. FIRST OF ALL, HERE’S EIGHT EXAMPLES OF THE RIGHTEOUS ESCAPING JUDGMENT FROM WRATH. FIRST OF ALL THE DAYS OF NOAH. I’M GOING TO GO THROUGH THESE VERY QUICKLY. BY FAITH NOAH BEING WARNED OF GOD OF THINGS NOT YET SEEN MOVED WITH FEAR PREPARED AN ARK SAVING OF HIS HOUSE BY WHICH HE CONDEMNED THE WORLD AND BECAME THE HEIR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH IS BY FAITH, HEBREWS 11:7. NOAH ESCAPED THE FLOOD, RODE IT OUT BECAUSE OF GOD BEING MERCIFUL AND FAITHFUL TO A RIGHTEOUS MAN. NUMBER TWO THE DAYS OF LOT. NOW IN GENESIS 18:25, ABRAHAM SAYS TO GOD, BE IT FAR FROM THEE TO DO AFTER THIS MANNER. GOD’S GOING TO DESTROY SODOM AND GOMORRAH. HE SAYS DON’T DO THAT. TO SLAY THE RIGHTEOUS WITH THE WICKED AND THAT THE RIGHTEOUS SHOULD BE AS THE WICKED? BE THAT FAR FROM THEE. SHALL NOT THE JUDGE OF THE EARTH DO RIGHT? NOW IN GENESIS 19:22, THE ANGELS OF GOD ARE GETTING READY TO SEND THE JUDGMENT ON SODOM AND GOMORRAH AND THEY LOOK AT LOT AND HERE’S WHAT THEY SAY. HASTE THEE AN ESCAPE THERE FOR I CAN DO NOTHING TILL YOU BECOME THERE. THEREFORE THE NAME OF THE CITY WAS CALLED ZOAR. AND IT CAME TO PASS WHEN GOD DESTROYED THE CITIES OF THE PLAIN THAT GOD REMEMBERED ABRAHAM SENT LOT OUT OF THE MIDST OF THE OVERTHROW WHEN HE OVERTHREW THE CITIES IN WHICH LOT DWELT. 2 PETER 2:9 THE LORD KNOWS HOW TO DELIVER THE GODLY (SPEAKING OF LOT) OUT OF TEMPTATIONS AND TO RESERVE THE UNJUST TO THE DAY TO BE PUNISHED. THE WHOLE PRINCIPAL HERE IS THAT THE ANGELS OF GOD SAID TO LOT AND I’LL PARAPHRASE GENESIS 19:22 AND YOU CAN READ IT. HURRY UP AND GET TO THE CITY OF ZOAR WHICH IS ON THE MOUNTAIN CAUSE WE CAN’T SEND JUDGMENT ON THIS CITY UNTIL YOU’RE OUT OF HERE. NOW THAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF GOD ALLOWING A RIGHTEOUS PERSON TO ESCAPE AND NOT TO BE JUDGED. NOW SOMEONE SAYS WHAT DOES LOT AND NOAH HAVE TO DO WITH THE COMING OF THE LORD? BECAUSE JESUS SAID, AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH SO WILL IT BE AT THE TIME OF THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN. HE ALSO SAID AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF LOT SO WILL IT BE AT THE TIME OF THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN. NOW ONE OF THE THINGS THAT JESUS DID EMPHASIZE, LET ME GET OFF THE SUBJECT FOR JUST A MOMENT, IS THAT THEY WERE EATING, DRINKING, MERRY AND GIVING IN MARRIAGE UP UNTIL THE DAY THAT NOAH ENTERED THE ARK WHICH SHOWS ME THAT WHEN CHRIST RETURNS THEY’RE GOING TO BE DOING THE SAME THING ON EARTH EATING, DRINKING, STOCK MARKET BUYING, SELLING, YOU KNOW LIFE IS GOING TO BE GOING ON WHEN HE RETURNS AND THAT’S WHY HE KEEPS TELLING PEOPLE WATCH AND PRAY BECAUSE YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW THE SUDDENNESS OF WHEN I’M GOING TO COME BACK. ALRIGHT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT ESCAPE, THE RIGHTEOUS ESCAPING JUDGMENT, AND THE ESCAPE FROM EGYPT. EXODUS 12:23 FOR THE LORD WILL PASS THROUGH TO SMITE THE EGYPTIANS AS WHEN HE SEES THE BLOOD UPON THE LENTILS ON THE TWO SIDE POSTS THE LORD WILL PASS OVER THE DOOR AND WILL NOT SUFFER THE DESTROYER TO COME INTO YOUR HOMES TO SMITE YOU. SO HERE WE SEE THE HEBREW PEOPLE ESCAPING THE WRATH OF THE DESTROYING ANGEL BECAUSE OF THE BLOOD THAT WAS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE DOORPOSTS…THAT IS ESCAPE FROM DEATH. ESCAPE FROM DEATH – THE EXODUS STORY. HERE’S ANOTHER ONE. RAHAB WAS DELIVERED FROM DYING WHEN THE CITY OF JERICHO WAS TAKEN. HEBREWS 11:31 BY FAITH, RAHAB THE HARLOT PERISHED NOT WITH THEM THAT BELIEVED NOT WHEN SHE HAD RECEIVED THE SPIES WITH PEACE. YOU KNOW THE STORY, THEY TOLD HER TO PUT THE RED THREAD IN THE WINDOW AND WHEN THE WALLS OF THE CITY FELL AND COLLAPSED ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF JOSHUA, RAHAB’S HOUSE WAS ON THE WALL, THIS WAS A MIRACLE, AND YET HER HOUSE WAS NOT DESTROYED. AND THE REASON HER HOUSE WAS NOT DESTROYED, WHY BY FAITH SHE PUT THE THREAD IN THE WINDOW AND GOD PRESERVED HER AND HER ENTIRE HOUSE IN A TIME OF DESTRUCTION WHEN THE ENTIRE CITY AND THE ENTIRE POPULATION WAS DESTROYED. ONE PERSON, ONE WOMAN JUSTIFIED BY HER FAITH IN THE WORDS OF THESE SPIES AND THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB ESCAPED THE DESTRUCTION OF JERICHO. HERE’S ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF ESCAPING DESTRUCTION. LUKE 21:21 JESUS WARNS THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT JERUSALEM IS GOING TO BE SURROUNDED BY ROMAN ARMIES ONE DAY. LET THEM WHICH ARE IN JUDEA FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS; LET THEM WHICH ARE IN THE MIDST DEPART OUT AND LET NOT THEM THAT ARE IN THE COUNTRIES ENTER INTO. SO HE IS SAYING, WHEN YOU SEE JERUSALEM START TO GET SURROUNDED, GET OUT AND FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS. A GROUP OF CHRISTIANS PRIOR TO 70AD HEEDED THESE WORDS OF JESUS AND LEFT JERUSALEM AND CROSSED THE JORDAN RIVER TO THE COUNTRY OF JORDAN AND THERE IS A COMMUNITY CALLED PELEAWHEN YU GO ON A HOLY LAND TRIP SOMETIMES THEY’LL TAKE YOU TO PETRA OR THEY’LL TAKE YOU TO JERASH AND PETRA AND OTHER TIMES THEY’LL ACTUALLY (ITS KIND OF OUT OF THE WAY REALLY IF YOU FLY INTO AMMON) BUT THEY CAN TAKE YOU TO SOME OF THESE COMMUNITIES WHERE CHRISTIANS ONE TIME LIVED AND THEY LISTENED TO THE WORDS OF JESUS, THIS IS MY POINT, AND BECAUSE THEY LISTENED TO THE WORDS OF JESUS THEY ESCAPED THE DAY OF TROUBLE. LISTEN TO ANOTHER GROUP THAT ESCAPES THOSE THAT ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY OF JORDAN DURING THE TRIBULATION. DURING THE TRIBULATION PERIOD WHEN THE ANTICHRIST IS MARKING PEOPLE WITH THE MARK OF THE BEAST AND THE IMAGES ARE BUILT AND PEOPLE ARE WORSHIPPING IT, THE BIBLE SAYS THERE ARE A GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO ESCAPE FROM THE ANTICHRIST. DANIEL 11:41 HE (THIS IS THE ANTICHRIST) SHALL ENTER INTO THE GLORIOUS LAND (THAT’S A NAME FOR ISRAEL) AND MANY COUNTRIES WILL BE OVERTHROWN BUT THESE SHALL ESCAPE (THERE’S THE WORD) OUT OF HIS HAND EDOM, MOAB AND THE CHIEF CHILDREN OF AMMON. NOW EDOM AND MOAB IS THE COUNTRY OF JORDAN AND THE AMMON IS THE CAPITAL OF JORDAN AND FOR SOME REASON WHEN THE ANTICHRIST COMES TO POWER HE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE CONTROL OF EDOM, MOAB AND AMMON. IT MIGHT BE BECAUSE JORDAN IS VERY MUCH LINKED INTO THE WEST BANK PART OF ISRAEL TODAY AND THE JORDANIANS USED TO CONTROL ALL THE WEST BANK. IN FACT IT WAS CALLED TRANS-JORDAN, THE COUNTRY OF JORDAN, SO I’M NOT GOING TO SPECULATE WHY. THE POINT IS THEY ESCAPE THE HANDS OF THE ANTICHRIST. NOW LOOK HERE THERE’S ANOTHER JEWISH REMNANT OF 144,000 PROTECTED FROM THE POWER OF THE ANTICHRIST AND THE POWER OF THE PLAGUES OF TRIBULATION. REVELATION 7:3 144,000 JEWS AND THE LORD SAID DON’T HURT THE EARTH, NOR THE SEA NOR THE TREES AND HE IS SPEAKING TO A DESTRUCTIVE ANGEL HERE TILL WE HAVE SEALED THE SERVANTS OF GOD IN THEIR FOREHEAD. SO THESE 144,000 JEWISH MEN ARE SEALED WITH THE SEAL OF GOD AND THEY ARE PROTECTED FROM THE TIME OF THE ANTICHRIST AND FROM THE DESTRUCTION, THE DEATH THAT’S COMING BECAUSE THEY ARE SEALED WITH THE SEAL OF GOD. NOW LET ME GIVE YOU EZEKIEL 14:13-14 WHICH IS ANOTHER PASSAGE INDICATING HOW GOD CAN SUPERNATURALLY PROTECT THOSE WHO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN HIM AND WHO ARE RIGHTEOUS. SON OF MAN WHEN THE LAND SINNETH AGAINST ME BY TRESPASSING GRIEVOUSLY THEN I WILL STRETCH OUT MY HAND UPON IT AND WILL BREAK THE STAFF OF THE BREAD THEREOF AND WILL SEND FAMINE UPON IT AND WILL CUT OFF MAN AND BEAST FROM IT. NOW WATCH THIS NEXT VERSE. THOUGH THESE THREE MEN NOAH, DANIEL AND JOB WERE IN IT THEY SHOULD DELIVER BUT THEIR OWN SOULS BY THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS SAITH THE LORD. NOW NOTICE WHAT HE TALKS ABOUT: BREAKING THE STAFF OF BREAD, FAMINE AND CUTTING MAN OFF IN JUDGMENT. THREE MEN WOULD ESCAPE IT BECAUSE OF THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THAT IS NOAH, DANIEL AND JOB. NOW HERE’S MY POINT. THERE’S A PRINCIPLE FOUND IN SCRIPTURE. YOU CANNOT DENY IT, THAT THE RIGHTEOUS ARE NOT JUDGED ALONG WITH THE UNRIGHTEOUS. THAT THOSE WHO ARE FAITHFUL TO GODS COVENANT ARE NOT JUDGED THE SAME AS THE WICKED. OTHER EXAMPLES ARE PSALMS 71:2, PSALMS 141:10, ISAIAH 37:32, ISAIAH 66:19 AND SO FORTH. ONE OF MY FAVORITE VERSES WHEN PEOPLE SAY “OH, GOD WHAT’S THE WHOLE CHURCH TO GO TO THE TRIBULATION” IS THIS VERSE RIGHT HERE. HE SAID: WATCH THEREFORE AND PRAY ALWAYS THAT YOU MAY BE COUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS THAT SHALL COME TO PASS AND THAT YOU’LL STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN. SO HERE IS MY ISSUE. THIS SHOWS YOU THE TEACHING OF THE RIGHTEOUS ESCAPING. NOW, I WANT TO DO SOMETHING HERE. I WANT TO READ THIS TO YOU. I’M GOING TO GIVE YOU EIGHT REASONS FOR A PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE. NOW ON THE NEXT PROGRAM I’M GOING TO BE DEALING WITH PRE-TRIB, MID-TRIB AND POST-TRIB, SHOWING THE SCRIPTURES THAT ALL THREE OF THESE INDIVIDUALS USE AND WHY I LEAN MORE TOWARD A PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH. PRE-TRIB MEANING SOMEWHERE BEFORE THE SEVEN YEAR TRIBULATION. MID-TRIB IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEVEN YEARS. POST-TRIB AT THE END. HERE’S EIGHT REASONS FOR A PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE. REASON NUMBER ONE IS JEREMIAH 30:7, IT IS A TIME OF JACOBS TROUBLE. IT IS NOT A TIME OF JUDGING THE CHURCH. THE CHURCH IS JUDGED AT THE LORDS TABLE WHEN WE TAKE COMMUNION AND BELIEVERS ARE CHASTISED IF THEY ARE DISOBEDIENT TO GOD. JUDGMENT AND WRATH, THE BIBLE SAYS HE RESERVES HIS WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES. THAT’S POINT ONE. SO IN OTHER WORDS, THE TRIBULATION IS ABOUT JACOB’S TROUBLE. IT IS A TRIAL THAT ISRAEL HAS TO GO THROUGH IN ORDER TO BRING ABOUT THE RETURN OF MESSIAH. NUMBER TWO: THE TRIBULATION IS THE TIME TO JUDGE THE NATIONS FOR THEIR SINS (REVELATION 11:18) NOT THE CHURCH. NOT THE SAINTS BECAUSE THE BEMA IS WHERE WE’RE GOING TO BE JUDGED INDIVIDUALLY WHETHER WE DID RIGHT OR WRONG AND SOME PEOPLE WILL HAVE REWARDS AND OTHERS WON’T. THAT’S WHERE OUR JUDGMENT TAKES PLACE IN REVELATION 11:18 AT THE BEMA WHILE THE NATIONS ARE BEING JUDGED ON EARTH. NUMBER THREE THE TRIBULATION IS TO DESTROY THE EARTH OF SINNERS. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THAT’S FOUND IN ISAIAH 13:19 IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH DESTROYING THE RIGHTEOUS. NUMBER FOUR: THE TRIBULATION IS TO BRING FORTH A REMNANT IN ISRAEL – ISAIAH 1:9 AND THERE ARE OTHER PASSAGES ON THAT, REVELATION 12, TALKS ABOUT THE REMNANT OF THE SEED, THAT GOD WILL PROTECT THE REMNANT OF THE JEWISH SEED DURING THE TRIBULATION. NUMBER FIVE: THE LORD HAS NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH, 1ST THESSALONIANS 5:9 AND THE TRIBULATION PERIOD IS THE TIME OF GODS WRATH AND ANGER BEING POURED OUT IN INDIGNATION. NUMBER SIX: THE LORD SAID WE SHOULD PRAY TO BE COUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE, LUKE 21:36. NOW IF IT’S NOT POSSIBLE TO ESCAPE WHY DID HE TELL US TO PRAY TO BE WORTHY TO ESCAPE? REVELATION 3:10, THE LORD SAID TO THE CHURCH, HE SAID I WILL KEEP YOU FROM THE HOUR OF TESTING. IF YOU KEEP THE WORD OF MY PATIENCE I WILL KEEP YOU FROM THE HOUR OF TESTING WHICH IS COMING UPON ALL OF THE EARTH. SO HE’S GOING TO KEEP US AND PRESERVE US FROM THE HOUR OF TESTING. NUMBER EIGHT: THE CHURCH WILL HAVE A SABBATH OF REST IN HEAVEN, HEBREWS 4:9. THERE REMAINS THEREFORE REST FOR GODS PEOPLE AND THAT REST IS GOING TO BE IN THE HEAVENLY CITY WHILE THE TRIBULATION IS GOING ON, ON EARTH. NOW I’M GOING TO MAKE A STATEMENT HERE. THE RAPTURE IS NOT A BLESSING FOR YOU SAYING YOU’RE SAVED, THE RAPTURE IS A BLESSING FOR FAITHFULNESS AND FOR BEING AN OVERCOMER. BECAUSE THE RAPTURE IS A BLESSING FOR THE OVERCOMER. THOSE WHO ARE SERVING THE LORD, LOOKING FOR HIM TO APPEAR, LOVE HIM WITH ALL THEIR HEART, WHO ARE WITNESSING, GIVING AND DOING ALL THEY KNOW TO BE TOTALLY OBEDIENT TO THE COVENANT THAT THEY HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED TO THE LORD. NOW ONE OF THE OTHER ARGUMENTS THAT PEOPLE GIVE ME AND THAT’S SOME SCRIPTURES ABOUT ESCAPING AND SOME REASONS WHY WE BELIEVE THAT THE RAPTURE IS ESCAPING THE DAY OF WRATH AND ESCAPING THE HOUR OF TESTING AND I DON’T DENY THAT IT IS A TIME TO ESCAPE THE TIME OF WRATH ON EARTH AND THE WRATH OF SATAN ETC.. BUT ONE OF THE THINGS PEOPLE OFTEN SAY IS “WELL BROTHER, IF YOU CAN’T FIND IT… YOU KNOW, THE OLD TESTAMENT IS THE NEW TESTAMENT CONCEALED, THE NEW TESTAMENT IS THE OLD TESTAMENT REVEALED, AND I’VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY “IF YOU CAN’T FIND THE CONCEPT OF THE RAPTURE IN THE TORAH, I DON’T BELIEVE IT”. WELL I’M GLAD TO ANNOUNCE TO YOU TODAY I CAN TOTALLY FIND THE CONCEPT OF THE RAPTURE IN THE TORAH, THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF MOSES. IN FACT, MOSES WAS ON MT. SINAI WHEN THIS HAPPENED AND WHERE DID PAUL GO IN THE BOOK OF GALATIANS TO RECEIVE THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST? ON MT. SINAI. WOW. WHAT I’M GONNA DO IS GO TO EXODUS 19 AND I’M GONNA GIVE YOU, ALL THESE VERSES WILL COME UP ON THE SCREEN, AND THEN I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU WHERE THE PARALLEL OF THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING IS FOUND. HERE’S THE POINT I’M MAKING. THAT THE SEVEN FEASTS OF ISRAEL, AND THIS BY THE WAY WAS THE TIME OF RECEIVING OF THE LAW CALLED PENTECOST, THE SINAI REVELATION. IT’S ACTUALLY WHEN JEWS TEACH THAT GOD OFFICIALLY MARRIED ISRAEL. BUT NOTICE THE PARALLELS HERE BETWEEN THE COMING OF JESUS CHRIST AS REVEALED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT AND WHAT HAPPENED TO MOSES ON MT. SINAI. HERE WE GO. EXODUS 19: ISRAEL WAS CALLED A PECULIAR PEOPLE, CHAPTER 19:5. THE CHURCH IS CALLED A PECULIAR PEOPLE, 1ST PETER 2:9. ISRAEL WAS CALLED A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, EXODUS 19:6. THE CHURCH IS CALLED KINGS AND PRIESTS UNTO GOD, REVELATION 1:6. GOD APPEARED TO MOSES ON THE THIRD DAY, CHAPTER 19, VERSE 11 AND HOSEA 6:1-3 INDICATES THAT WHEN THE LORD RETURNS HE WILL RAISE US UP ON THE THIRD DAY. GOD, THE BIBLE SAYS, CAME DOWN ON MT. SINAI IN THE CLOUDS, EXODUS 19:16. AND ACTS 1:9-11 TELLS US THAT JESUS, THE TWO MEN, AND WHY THE PARABLE SAYS HE’S COMING BACK AGAIN. HE WENT UP ON A CLOUD. HE’LL COME BACK ON A CLOUD OF GLORY. IN THE BOOK OF EXODUS GODS VOICE SOUNDED LIKE A TRUMPET 19:16 AND 1ST THESSALONIANS 4:16 PAUL MADE IT CLEAR THAT WHEN THE LORD RETURNS THE TRUMP OF GOD IS GOING TO SOUND. SO WE’VE GOT THE TRUMPET IN EXODUS AND THE TRUMPET AT THE COMING OF THE LORD. GOD ANSWERED MOSES IN A VOICE, EXODUS 19:19 AND WE READ IN 1ST THESSALONIANS 4:16 THAT THERE’S GOING TO BE A VOICE OF AN ARCH ANGEL. GOD CAME DOWN IN A FIRE, EXODUS 19:18, AND WE READ IN THE BIBLE WHERE 2ND THESSALONIANS 1:10 WHEN HE RETURNS TO EARTH HE’S COMING BACK IN FLAMING FIRE. NOW HERE’S THE PART I LIKE. EXODUS 19:20 SAYS THAT GOD DESCENDED FROM HEAVEN. 1ST THESSALONIANS 4:17, CHRIST WILL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN. AND IT SAYS GOD CALLED MOSES UP, EXODUS 19:20 AND THE SAINTS WILL BE CALLED UP TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR, 1ST THESSALONIANS 4:17. IN OTHER WORDS, THE LORD CAME DOWN AND MOSES WENT UP AND WHEN THE LORD JESUS RETURNS AND COMES DOWN GUESS WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN? THE SAINTS ARE GOING TO BE, HALLELUJAH, CAUGHT UP. NOW WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS VERY INTERESTING BECAUSE I’M GOING TO GO BACK TO SOMETHING I SAID ON THE FIRST PROGRAM AND MAKE AN EXPLANATION. WHEN THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS CONVERTED ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS HE DID AFTER HE ESCAPED DEATH AT DAMASCUS, AND YOU CAN READ THIS IN THE BOOK OF GALATIANS, HE SAID I CONFERRED WITH NO MAN BUT I WENT INTO THE DESERT OF ARABIA AND THERE HE RECEIVED THE REVELATION OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. IN OTHER WORDS, PAUL WENT TO ARABIA, WHICH HE SAYS IN GALATIANS IS MT. SINAI WHICH IS IN ARABIA AND THERE THE LORD SHOWED HIM THE RAPTURE OF 1ST THESSALONIANS 4:16-17. NO ONE HAD EVER GOT THE DIRECT REVELATION BEFORE PAUL DID ABOUT THIS GREAT MYSTERY THAT WAS HID IN GOD FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. NOW SOMEONE ASKED ME, WHY DOES GOD WAIT TO REVEAL THE RAPTURE TEACHING IN THE TIME OF PAUL? NUMBER ONE: THE CHURCH HAD TO BE FORMED. THE MYSTERY OF THE CHURCH. NUMBER TWO: THE GENTILES HAD TO BE GRAFTED INTO THE COVENANT BECAUSE THE GENTILES ARE A PART OF THE GREAT CATCHING AWAY WHICH IS GOING TO TAKE PLACE. THE GENTILES WERE NOT GRAFTED INTO THE COVENANT UNTIL ACTS 10 WHEN PETER WENT DOWN TO CORNELIUS HOUSE ON THE COAST LINE AND PREACHED JESUS AND CORNELIUS WAS CONVERTED AND BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. PAUL LATER, AT THAT TIME HE’S IN ARABIA GETTING THE REVELATION, HE COMES OUT OF ARABIA. LATER HE GOES UP TO JERUSALEM AND BEGINS TO TELL THE APOSTLES THE THINGS THAT THE LORD HAD SHOWED HIM AND WRITES FOURTEEN LETTERS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT, THE FIRST BEING 1ST THESSALONIANS THAT DEALS WITH, WE SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR. THE IMAGERY THAT PAUL USED IS THE SAME IMAGERY OF EXODUS 19 WHERE MOSES, THE TRUMPET SOUNDS AND MOSES GOES, THE LORD COMES DOWN AND MOSES GOES UP AND SO WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS WE HAVE EXODUS 19 BEING A PATTERN OF THE RAPTURE WHICH IS REVEALED TO THE APOSTLE PAUL IN THE NEW COVENANT. NOW THERE’S A BIG ARGUMENT AS TO WHEN DOES IT HAPPEN. DOES IT HAPPEN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEVEN YEARS, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEVEN YEARS OR THE END BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THE LORDS COMING BELIEVE THAT HE COMES DURING ONE OF THOSE TIME FRAMES. THIS IS THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE. THE DIFFERENCE IN CHRISTIANITY, DOCTRINALLY, IS NOT TO SAY THE LORD IS RETURNING. MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE DEVOUT CHRISTIANS BELIEVE, IF YOU BELIEVE THE NEW TESTAMENT YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE HE’S RETURNING. IT IS IS THERE ONLY ONE COMING WHICH IS AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION AS SOME TEACH, OR ARE THERE TWO APPEARINGS AND ONE IS AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION WITH THE SAINTS BUT THE OTHER IS COMING FOR THE SAINTS SOMEWHERE DURING THE SEVEN YEARS. I’M GONNA DO ONE MORE PROGRAM IN THIS SERIES IN WHICH I’M GOING TO EXPLAIN TO YOU, I THINK IN DETAIL, THESE THREE THEORIES. IT’S GOING TO BE NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL BE THE CONCLUSION OF MY SERIES.

  1. date setting is not the answer when god stands up and sends his son before the trade marc is forced upon Christians then we will be snatched

  2. I feel an "event(s)"is going to happen in September. I've been through the "88 reasons", but this is way different to me. I've been feeling this for a long while now, and it seems to get stronger every day. Its not a dread or terror feeling, its a wonderful feeling, as though I'm about to go on a amazing journey. If I talk about this on FaceBook, I get yelled at and called all kinds of names. Am I just nuts?

  3. I agree with this teaching the only thing I would clarify is that Noah would symbolize the 144,000 who are protected during the the first 3 1/2 years, now Enoch walked with God as a Bride and He did not face death but was taken/raptured to heaven

  4. praise God!!I bought the rapture revelation DVD series download version and had a home viewing of the ancient Jewish wedding for some of my local church brethren and it was awesome!!! Praise Jesus!!! everyone wanted to come back and asked me and my wife to host it again!!! thanks Perry, what a blessing!! can't wait to hear those words, "COME UP HERE!!"

  5. He can claim the rapture happens 7 years before the end, yet all the examples he uses happen on the same day, the same day Noah enters the ark the flood starts, and the same day Lot leaves Sodom it is destroyed, and thats what will happen at Christ return, the righteous will be saved and the wicked destroyed, read 1 Thes 5. Its that simple. GB, PeaceB2All

  6. #daysoflot The Lord revealed to me Lot represents the "church" those people who have accepted christ, overcomers, watching, Etc….

    Noah Represents Israel: a Covenant, a Ark, and endured the storm…. (something you might wanna look at….

    Gen 19:16 But he (Lot) dallied, so the men(angels of the Lord) took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand and the hands of his two daughters — Adonai was being merciful to him — and led (Took, Snatched, catching away, harpazo) them, leaving them outside the city.

  7. I love watching Anita Fuente's show.
    But I get turned-off very fast when she calls the Pre-Trib Rapture a lie.
    Why, I ottah!!……. Nah. JK. =)
    But she's a Mid-Tribber is why.

  8. Hosea 6:1-3 you said Jesus will raise us up on the 3rd day. Well, the day the moon begins to show the waxing of the crescent during Rosh Hashanah this year (2015) will be just before midnight on TUESDAY September 15. That would be the 3rd day of the week. AND…if that was the case, it would b 7 days before the sunset of the 22nd going into the 23rd, which happens to be the day of Atonement, the day of Judgement. Didn't God allow Noah to escape 7 days before the flood? I know Lot was out of the city just a little while before destruction, but that is interesting.

  9. Great stuff as always, AND my QUESTION IS WILL EVERYONE IN THE WORLD KNOW THAT THE RAPTURE IS HAPPENING WHEN IT HAPPENS???

  10. I had a thought. I'm gonna come into agreement with Perry and all other teachers, and believing brothers and sisters, that Jesus is soon to come, and he is gonna rapture us out of here before it really goes to pot. Amen! Thank you Jesus! Glory to the Father and Son!

  11. perry has a video about the "tribulaim board" used to separate the wheat from the chaff…then the chaff is thrown into the fire … i wish he would watch his own video. or just read it in the bible one more time .math 24. jesus said immediately after the tribulation .. he would come back … and paul said it too 2 thes chap 2… after the antichrist is revealed! ……dont be fooled people that day and hour will not over you as a thief …for you are the children of light and you see clearly!!!!!!!

  12. YOU CAN NOT SEPARATE THE WHEAT FROM THE CHAFF WITHOUT THE TRIBULAIM .. THE HARVEST IS AFTER !!!! … ASK ANY FARMER!!!.. ASK ME!!!!

  13. NOAH WAS NOT "SAVED FROM THE FLOOD" GOD TOOK HIM THROUGH IT AND HAD HIM PREPARE!!!!!… AND DANIEL WAS NOT "SAVED FROM THE LIONS DEN"…GOD TOOK HIM THROUGH IT , SHADRAK MEISHAK AND AND ABINDIGO WERE NOT SAVED FROM THE FIREY FURNACE , … THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE NOT SAVED FROM THE PLAGES OF EGYPT GOD TOOK THEM AND MANY MORE THOUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH ..THE PATH TO HIS MOUNTAIN…FAITH! THE FOOT STEPS OF THE JUST ARE ORDAINED BY THE LORD! ….WE WALK BY FAITH!

  14. God says he give the antichrist the power to overcome and kill the saints,…so why do people think God is going to bring the Church through the tribulation to the end

  15. I never saw this until now!
    Keep awake then and watch at all times [be discreet, attentive, and ready], praying that you may have the full strength and ability and be accounted worthy to escape all these things [taken together] that will take place, and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man.

    All these things taken together – the Large Hadron Collider CERN

  16. N the past people tried to apply certain n time prophecy too those calamities>>>but they were only a few and not n order!! The Wrath of JUDGMENT PROPHECY HAVE CLICKED OFF the LIST N RAPID FASHION(SO DO BRIT>>>U.S.A>>MYSTERY BABYLON!! IT IS NOT A MYSTERY!!

  17. MOSES was AT Jebel L Lawz northern Saudi Arabia

CAN YOU SAY OVERKILL>>LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO ME KODESH SON!! YESHUA HAMESHIACH showed overwhelming OVERKILL!! His Wrath and Judgment is KODESH TRUE and Straight!!

  18. I use to believe in the rapture doctrine until I actually read mathew ch. 24 which does not say we will escape a tribulation but we will go thru it. And Jesus second coming will be instant and visible. And in Acts ch. 2 when he ascends into heaven, 2 angels tell the disciples that he will return in the same fashion as he left. And to many of the prophetic teachers have tried to give an actual date or year of The beginning of the tribulation or rapture and all have failed miserably and keep changing their findings to keep christians gullible and keep buying the stuff they put out. And it makes a mockery of us who follow Christ and possibly decieves people in this false doctrine Im sick of it!
    Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, He is our first and last defense against satan. And no second hand doctrine in going to take place of His redemptive plan for us.

  19. Enoch (seventh from Adam) was also raptured: Hebrews 11:5.  He is not coming back for the Tribulation. Neither will we, until Jesus leads the saints back to earth as King of kings and Lord of lords in Revelation 19:11-16.  After rapture, is the Judgment Seat of Christ: II Corinthians 5:10-11.  After resurrection comes glorification.  After receiving rewards at the Bema, we are glorified together with Jesus.  Can't wait.

  20. Thank you for clarifying things that has been a constant debated issue for century. Amen. God bless to Perry Stone's Ministry and to our Israeli brothers.

  21. There is plenty of evil that can come upon the people of the earth before the tribulation time. Believers are supposed to expect persecution but that is not THE tribulation. The world has been going through tribulation since the fall of Adam.
    People should spend more time praying for grace to get through the trials that are ahead and praying for the lost that God wants not to perish but to gain knowledge of the truth. We are called to be prayers. Things could get very bad before the tribulation if believers lose heart and faint. The people who lived during WWI and WWII thought they were experiencing the end of days. It is time to pray!

  22. With all due respect to Perry Stone, he's a Pre-Tribulation Rapture enthusiast, and I believe in a PRE-WRATH RAPTURE based on what it says in Revelation 6. Furthermore, the Wrath of God and the Wrath of the Lamb are one and the same thing since "the Lamb" is a title for Christ, Who is GOD Incarnate, and Who created the Universe for His Father. So I think Perry Stone is GROSSLY in error here. It's like the people who try to say that the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven are different. They're not, but are only different expressions for the same thing. God bless.

  23. Mani ks. I. Don't believe. What. Your. Saying. There are. A whole lot. Of. Verses about sin and willingly sining and not willingly And I think you. Show your. Love to. God. Turning. From sin. If. Your. Not. Looking. For. Gods. Return. Your not. Going. That's. Not. Me. Saying. That. It's. God

  24. I love the word thanks for sharing what God give you.All i know is we are going up when he come first the dead in Christ and then the ones that are alive I call that a Rapture.Praying for you Brother.

  25. we will be gathered with him in the air
    Air in greek 835. aulizomai ow-lid'-zom-ahee middle voice from 833; to pass the night (properly, in the open air):–abide, lodge.

    Clouds in hebrew 2841 chashrah khash-raw' from the same as 2840; properly, a combination or gathering

    so paul said Christ will return and we will gathered together and abide with him
    we are not gonna fly in the sky!!

  27. Brother Perry I appreciate you standing on the Word. As a pastor I agree with you 100%!! No matter how much we try to preach the Bible there will always be those who won't agree with us. Continue to stand on the Word as I know you will.

  28. Jesus is our righteousness. He is our red thread. He that is in us is worthy to escape judgment. We are His and He is ours. no depth or height or principality or darkness or length can seperate us from Him. Not through our own filthy righteousness but bc Him in us is righteous. He alone is without spot and blemish!! He alone is worthy!!!

  29. I'm out of here this is the month I hope you people are getting everyone ready and repent from sin! If people aren't away of the surprise of September 2015. We'll wake up this isn't your birthday it's bigger it's no Xmas either ! Bigger it's Jesus Christ coming and pope and Obama is gonna be together in Sept 23 2015. And pope Francis will announce something that will make you piss your pants ! Get ready we're going home and leaving this awful manipulated world. We as humans have been living in a world of lies and manipulation and we have always known that something wasn't normal about this world. How we live isn't the way we are suppose to live. Money material you name it all a joke!

  30. the just shall live by faith. faith in what the law or the son? if the only people being raptured r the ones who "overcome" then what is the point of Jesus death? we should have just remained under the law then Perry. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 the ones who are alive and remain on earth will go up. not according to our own works but by the finished work at the cross. yes we should pray to b accounted worthy daily bc if we wherent conceded we would realize how all of our righteousness w out Jesus is filthy!!! I'm gonna stop it just gets me ticked off that u Perry r basing our salvation on our own works, clearly not right

  31. Peter said the END was NEAR to them. 1 Pet 4:7. Now, who do you believe, Peter or Perry? Jesus said his disciples would not finish going through the cities of Isreal before he came. Now who do you believe Jesus or Perry? John said THEY were in the LAST DAYS (of the old covenant world/age). Now who do you believe, John or Perry?
    The END was for the Nation of Israel in the old covenant world/age. 1 Pet 4:7. The END of ALL things is NEAR.'
    It was near to THEM and came in 70 AD. The nation of Israel was the old 'heaven and earth' and the church is the new heaven and earth. We are the new creation, as Paul said. Wake up and stop following these false teachers.

  32. Yes we do go through the tribulation with no rapture, because you do not understand what the tribulation is the wrath of God and the tribulation are two entirely different things just like I tell everyone else that refuses to understand Jesus Christ was a model for mankind if you want to be with Christ you must be like Christ just like Jesus said to pick up your cross and follow me that means just like Jesus had to go through tribulation be persecuted and died on the cross those in the last days that claim Jesus and picks up their cross will also have to go through tribulation be persecuted and possibly die that is the reason why Jesus is a model for mankind because we must go through what he went through in order to be with him and to be worthy just as He is worthy that God would give him his bride which is the New Jerusalem that will come down to earth and we will be invited to the wedding as long as we go through the same straight and narrow path that Jesus went through

  33. I had a couple questions… escaping the day of wrath is different than tribulation. When Christ rose from the dead wasn't He the first fruits JESUS)and didn't He open the graves and take some with Him then- the barley? Ok Also didn't everyone die before they went up? except Enoch and Elijah Which will die.. And also One will be taken and one left… What does that mean because every eye will see Him when He comes. Also Abednego and Meshack walked through the fire could we go through some nuclear attack where GOD takes the those that are ready and than a mid trib rapture. We would be changed quick from death to life taking off corruption (the flesh) and putting on incorruption? GOD was with them walking through the fire when they wouldn't worship the beast. Anyway I hope you can understand what I am saying.

  34. Also they said how long God holy and true till you avenge us and HE said until your fellow servant's are beheaded like you. I don't have the scripture exactly. But it was something to that effect… Is that speaking of the Jews? Because I thought GOD said that there is neither Jew nor gentile male nor female bond nor free all one in CHRIST. So we are all Jews that keep His word His commandments. Also HE said Lo I am with you even to the ends of the earth. And I know HE said not all will sleep but be changed but all have died to go to heaven except the witnesses. Than when JESUS come back those that made it through tribulation will be alive… Yes because the dead will rise first. It also says gather the wheat into the barns but first bind the tares to be burned?

  35. Good on ya Perry, THIS IS THE RAPTURE Revelation 11:11 "But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them. 12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." Then they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them. 13 And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven" THIS ALSO HERALDS THE BEGINNING OF THE 'GREAT TRIBULATION'. SEE YA!!

  36. Genesis 7:1 – And the LORD said unto Noah," Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation."
    Notice it says "COME into the ark" If He said Come, not go (as some alternate Bible versions say) that means he was in there with them!
    He is going to call us up to be with him for 7 years. If you study the traditional Jewish engagement and wedding, it paints a perfect picture of what the tribulation for the believer will be like.

  37. Perry,what will you do if there is no pre-trib rapture? The 2witnesses who will be crucified at the mid point will know! They will be the new Messiah and A new Prophet! They will anoint the 144,000 who will not face death and be raptured at the midpoint of the tribulation. They are called the 2 olive trees and 2 lampstands who stand before YHWH God on earth. So much attention is given to the anti- messiah and the false prophet, but you must have the real Messiah and real Prophet of YHWH God first. Remember, the false shepards (false teachers) will be judged more severely than the ones they teach to!

  38. while it is true that the rapture will be given to those who overcome it is not as you say. for the simple reason one can do all the things that you mentioned is still miss the rapture and or go to hell. the rapture is given to those who are living by the face of the Son of God which means you have forsaken your life and your sins that are in your life. somebody ought to tell this man that he doesn't know God

  39. Here is maybe why no end-time biblical signs have happened on the Feast of Trumpets on September 14-15 (Tishri 1-2), or the day before (Elul 29) when stock markets have dipped violently before.

    This is a Jubilee Year according to the 49-year cycles of dating. Israel conquered Jerusalem in the Six Day War, and the Balfour Treaty declared the region as a homeland for the Jews, each 49 years apart! A Jubilee Year starts on the Day of Atonement! It begins 10 days later on the evening of Sept. 22 through the 23rd this year.

    "Then shall you cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month (Tishri), in the "day of atonement" (Yom Kippur) shall you make the trumpet sound throughout all your land." Read Lev. 25:8-10

  40. I read a startling article this morning in the Google news feed: Half the ocean has died! Are animal and plant life endangered as well? I would think so. The story sounds apocalyptic in "nature", but its importance has been lost in the hubbub of mass-media frenzy. The story disappeared later today.
    http://www.independent.ie/world-news/and-finally/half-of-ocean-life-has-died-out-in-the-last-45-years-says-the-wwf-31535613.html

  41. Midweek Rapture seems right according to: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4. So if these events have to happen before the GATHERED TOGETHER, then the rapture is not eminent. The Antichrist has to enter first in the temple of God which has to be rebuilt first.

  42. Bothers and Sisters Remember this (the moto of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church)In the essentials Unity, In the Non-Essentials Freedom and IN ALL THINGS LOVE.We may disagree on some non-essentials (timing of the rapture), but we who Love Jesus, and the Church.Love one another.

  43. The LAW brings WRATH. Ro 4:15. It happened in the first century. Relax. Jesus said to 'Love your enemies.' Do you think he will be pleased by your desire to bring his wrath on your own relatives, friends, and chaos to the world? God is no longer counting men's sins against them. 2 Cor 5:19

  44. Here's a question. If the book of Revelation is in order and during the 6th seal it shows a great multitude in heaven that came out of the great tribulation, then what is going on in the rest of the book of Revelation. Pre-Tribbers teach that there is the rapture, then those who are "tribulation saints". It appears that the tribulation is over before the 7th seal is opened because John sees ALL of the people killed in the great tribulation standing before the throne. So again I ask, if the book of Revelation is in order, and all Christians have been taken from the earth, either by rapture of death in the great tribulation, then what is going on from Chapter 7 to 19?

  45. The bible don't lie but Perry teaches that Columbus was a Jew biggest lie ever been told Columbus was never brought here against his will and sold as male and female slaves ( Deuteronomy 28) the people over in Israel today were never brought here against their will ,only the African American Isaiah chapter 42:22 say they would be hidden away in prison houses African American males make up 70 percent of all inmates ,the people calling themselves Jews only make up 0000005percent of the inmates not the Israelites of the bible ,Perry tells you that the Assyrian took the 10 tribes no they took 9 read Ezra chapter 1 it shows you Judah Benjamin and Levite were let free too returned to Israel by a Persia king

  46. if anybody besides Jesus ever went to heaven then Jesus lied and the Lord can't lie, John chapter 3:13 , so Enoch or Elijah never went too heaven all of God plans for mankind on this earth he won't too dwell among us read it in Exodus chapter 25 and remember this is Jehovah or Yahweh Remember it's only two in the God head just two

  47. Perry lied again the tribulation and it's not 7years is brought on by the beast and false prophet and it's by gentiles nations not Islamic the bible teaches you it's Babylon the great and remember who crucified Jesus it wasn't Muslim it was the Romans, and people today don't read the bible remember Ishmael Abraham first son or the Arabs are Hebrew, just like Esau who is calling themselves Jews today and Jacob had twelve sons not one Jew comes from the tribe of Judah ,it is 11 other tribes and they are not Jews Mose wasn't a Jew Paul wasn't a Jew so Perry stop calling the whole nation Jews because they were not but they all are Israelites

  48. the only people not going through the tribulation is the people who make it too the wilderness it tells you that in revelation Chapter 12 ,then after 3.5years of tribulation hear comes Jesus the sky rolled up like scroll and the sun turn black the moon true to blood stars fall and then 1 Thessalonians chapter 13-17 and then Zechariah chapter 14 nobody is going too heaven Perry is lying again , Jesus was here he is the tree of life ,genesis let you know that he was with the children of Israel in the wilderness ,people the father won't too be here Jesus was here and Jesus will be here after the tribulation for a thousand years then the father will come down with the new Jerusalem

  49. Rapture is NOT TO BE!!! Unless you have another verse that says,"Jesus gathers us together back to him BEFORE the tribulation" Until then you better get ready for the excitement to come!

  50. read Mathew 24 jesus words explained the end time and hes coming why we keep trying to believe mans teaching or mans theories this is why i believe in Mathew 7:21 jesus dont know some call christians cuse we love to fallow mens teaching.
    if you believe in the pre tribulation rapture is because you a coward and dont want to die or suffer..who cares we probably will die before this great. day false teachers like this love to sell books and sell their dvds..and people say i believe perrys teachings and never read the word or study it..JESUS SPIRIT WILL LEAD HES PEOPLE WE DONT NEED MAN TO TEACH US

  51. I think it's exciting times we live in that Perry can share that we can Escape by overcoming through Christ I'm be accounted Worthy I ask you Lord Jesus name I pray amen

  52. The Mid-Tribulational Research Center now has evidence for the mid-trip rapture. https://themidtribrapture.com/

  53. Listen, I Tell You a Mystery:
    Read Acts 1:11 and 2:34 and 3:21 and 1 Thessalonians 4
    and you will see that
    Christ cannot leave heaven until the Second Coming.

  54. Good day Perry, hope you well. I learned from the best and in this video I have you as the host! I have almost every episode since 1999 of yours on my computer. In this video I discuss the jubilees. I thought that 2017/18 was the final jubilee ,however it was not to be!

    Please watch my video and let me know your thoughts about 2027/28 as the jubilee year. thanks for your time. God bless.

  55. Can you tell me where in thebook of Revelation do we reed about one trumpet ? Where do we read about trumpets plural ? All through out the bi le. Lev.23.23 is memorial of blowing trumpets plural. Also prophetic . Points to josh.5.13 through chptr.6. And rev.8.1-2 ans rev.11.15-19 mat.24.31 angles plural . Unless it is a hukka trumpet then 1cor.15.52 and 1thes.4.16 agree multi angles multi trumpets namley seven. Gods wrath Day of the Lord or Day of Atonement begins at the seventh or last trump with a shout !
