"Great word!"


 
 
Jeff,
 
 These photo's looked "photo shopped."   They don't look real to me.  It looks like they have inserted these "signs" into the picture.  you can always tell when a picture has been photo shopped as there is always a slight "haze" or fuzziness around the inserted objects that have been added in, and they appear to be "outside" of the background picture itself.  Plus there are people out there who are selling "survival supplies" who are preying on peoples "fears"  who want people to be alarmed and scared which will encourage them to go out and buy a bunch of survival gear that costs boo-coo bucks and boost their sales so they can fill their pockets with peoples money.  
 
 Many of these people who are providing these links ( or who are creating them ) on the internet are NOT Christians, but many of them are survivalists  and anti-government peoples.  And of course there are a lot of "ignornant" christians out there who are getting caught up and sucked into this frenzy because they have been taught, told, and conditioned to believe that the Church has to go through the tribulation period and endure The FEMA CAMPS and all the rest of the "hype"  that these people are promoting on the internet.  And so these people read this propaganda and in terror and fear they go out and spend all their money on what I call "tribulation supplies" which are ALL GOING TO BE LEFT BEHIND with all the rest of the unbelievers when the Rapture happens.  This is such a waste of the Lord's time, money, and energy, and resources.
 
 Something else here is that the majority of these kinds of links do not mention anything about the "coming of the Lord" and the Rapture of the Church.  Not one word!   So what does that tell'ya about them!  That should be an immediate "red flag" to Christians who know and believe that the Rapture of the Church precedes the tribulation period
 
 
2 Timothy 1:7...........For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
 
 
1John 4:16-18........ We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.  By this, love is perfected with usso that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
 
 
 I always ask people following question:
 
Question: "How many times does God have to say something before it is true?"  That's a pretty simple question isn't, but the answer is very powerful and profound!
 
AnswerJUST ONE TIME!
 
God in His word had made "promises" to His Church which are irrevocable. And one of the main promises He has made to His Church is that it will NOT have to endure His judgments / wrath.  And He not only promises us that we will be spared of this, but He also repeats Himself concerning this subject many times in Scripture.  And here are just a few of them below.
 
 
Romans 5:8-9.........But God deomnstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yets sinners, Christ died for usMuch more then, having beenjustified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.
 
 
Romans 8:1.......There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of "life" in Christ Jesus has set you freefrom the law of sin and of death.
 
 
1Thess. 1:10..........And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He has raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath to come.
 
 
Now lets see here!  In this Scripture above there is NOT ONE WORD about the believer having to face the antichrist, the tribulation period, nor any of thewrath of God ( No FEMA CAMPS mentioned here.etc...etc. )  And it states that we are to "wait for His Son from heaven", and therefore we are NOT suppose to be lookingwaiting, nor watching for the appearance of  the antichrist, the tribulation period, nor any of God's wrath.  And if we were suppose to, then the Apostle Paul would have warned and instructed the church right here in this text so they would know what to expect!  But here we go, NOT ONE WORD!
 
 
1Thess. 5:9..........For God has NOT destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
 
Titus 2:12,13......"Instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the prsent age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus."
 
 
1 Corinthians 1:7-8......so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,  who will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ ( the resurrection / Rapture of the Church ).
 
Once again,  Not one word of instruction given to the Church out of the Apostle Paul's mouth concerning Christians needing to wait and look for theantichrist and the tribulation period and the wrath of God." Instead the Apostle Pauls says that we are to be awaiting eagerly for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
 
Revelation 3:10.......Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world ( notice that it dos not say.... come upon the Church ), to test those  who dwell on the earth  ( unbelievers on the earth and Not theChurch who is already seen in heaven in Rev. chatpers 4 and 5 before the seal judgments are opened).
 
 
Hebrews 12:2 .....fixing our eyes on Jesus ( not on Fema camps, not on the coming antichrist, not on the tribulation period, nor the wrath of God ).... the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
 
 
So you see, God does repeat Himself!  And His promises can be trusted! And He only needs to "say it once" for it to be true and trustworthy!!!!
 
God bless brother Jeff
 
In Christ, Tom Gaston
