Hi Doves,In Todd Burpo book "Heaven is for real" Colton, his son, who was 4 Years old at the time, was taken to heaven during surgery.One Day,When he was 6 Years old in 2005, he had just finished watching "The Lion, the witch, and the wardrobe"with is family.His mum asked him,"Why do they [angels] need swords in heaven?""Mom, Satan's not in hell yet," Colton said,..."The angels carry swords so they can keep Satan out of heaven!"In the Word we read,"I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. O Death, I will be your plagues! O Grave, I will be your destruction!" (Hos.13:14)The Devil has been responsible for distorting, twisting and preventing true doctrine from reaching millions in the Church.Those who have true doctrine have had to fight demons to get it.Many Christians don't know that angels have to fight demons to bring us understanding.Some times these battles are won and some times they are lost.These lost battles are the reason false doctrines are rampant in the Church today.All hope is not lost however, for many Christians are now standing up for true doctrine.They are preaching repentance, holiness and righteousness as a must for being included in the rapture."For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness [that is, false teachings] of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." [Eph.6:12]More and more Christians are beginning to understand that what they have been taught for years is false.Just how far reaching the doctrine of demons have infiltrated the Church, is about to become painfully obvious to all those who have been deceived, and as a result, will be left behind at the rapture.Starting from the 1st of February 2012, the Lord is going to unleash 10 spiritual plagues, similar to the 10 plagues of Egypt, on the Devil and his angels!This is to loosen the Devil's death grip over all those who belong to the Lord.For in this physical realm, the Devil rules humanity with the law of ageing and death.The Devil will not release God's children without a fight.Hence a similar sequence of events to what preceded the Israelites release from Egypt will occur.The Devil and his legion of demons will be plagued 10 times over 10 Sabbath days, in the spirit realm, until the rapture occurs on First-fruits, which falls on Sunday, the 8th of April 2012.1st of February 2012 [8th of Sh'vat] Blood - 1st plague.8th of February 2012 [15th of Sh'vat] frogs - 2nd plague.15th of February 2012 [22nd of Sh'vat] lice - 3rd plague.22nd of February 2012 [29th of Sh'vat] flies - 4th plague.2nd of March 2012 [8th of Adar] Pestilence on cattle - 5th plague.9th of March 2012 [15th of Adar] Boils - 6th plague.16th of March 2012 [22nd of Adar] hail - 7th plague.23rd of March 2012 [29th of Adar] locust - 8th plague.31st of March - 2nd April 2012 [8th -10th of Nisan] 3 days of darkness - 9th plague.6th/7th April 2012 [14th/15th of Nisan] death of the firstborn - 10th plague.8th of April 2012 [16th of Nisan] The Resurrection and Translation of saints [FIRST-FRUITS].The Lord can only translate those who have His life flowing into them daily by the Holy Spirit as first-fruits.Fruits, which are all the good deeds we do and the truths we confess, are called "first-fruits" because they originate from the Highest or First place within the Lord Jesus Christ.In other words, they originate from the Father who dwells within the Lord.This is why the Lord said,"By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit..." [John 14:8]These fruits are actually gifts from the Lord, which the wise receive and the foolish reject,The foolish reject them because they believe they have nothing to do with the rapture or salvation!They believe faith without works is life eternal.When the Word clearly teaches us,"...faith without works is dead..." [James 2:26]The wise, who have a living faith, receive these fruits daily from the Lord, through His Holy Spirit.The Lord then uses them to build up our spiritual body of righteousness within our natural body of sin."...He who practises righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous." [1John 3:7]There is life eternal within the righteousness we practise daily because they originate from within the Lord.Life eternal in our spiritual body is continually fighting and subduing death in our natural body!"...our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day." [2Cor.4:16]I believe the Lord is going to start to increase the degree or intensity of life eternal, flowing into our spiritual bodies, from Wednesday the 1st of February 2012!Many saints will experience miraculous healings, as the weeks progress.On the Day of First-fruits, which falls on Sunday the 8th of April 2012, the entire atmosphere of the world will be charged with life eternal!However, only those who have the First-fruits of the Holy Spirit will be able to receive it.It will destroy our natural bodies and instantaneously replace them with glorified bodies.We can now understand much better why Paul wrote,"We...have the first-fruits of the [Holy] Spirit, even we ourselves groan [that is, struggle to birth righteousness] within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body." [Rom.8:23]Paul new the rapture was going to occur on First-fruits all along!Ola.
