WHAT IS "THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION" WISE VIRGINS ARE TO BE KEPT OUT OF?

By Marilyn Agee

The wise virgins, those that have enough oil of the Holy Spirit, will be kept out of the Great Tribulation. That is when the False Prophet will require all to take the Mark of the Beast, which is the “hour of temptation”.

Therefore, we will be caught up Mid-Trib, before the False Prophet comes to power.

THE LORD SAID, “I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION” AND “HIM THAT OVERCOMETH WILL I MAKE A PILLAR IN THE TEMPLE OF MY GOD”

Rev 3:10-13 says, “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. 11  Behold, I COME QUICKLY (i.e., he comes quickly at the First-Trump Rapture): hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12  HIM THAT OVERCOMETH WILL I MAKE A PILLAR IN THE TEMPLE OF MY GOD, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”

HOWEVER, THE LORD RULES

And in Rev 3:10, Jesus said, “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION".

How would he do that? By taking us to Heaven in the Rapture.

In Rev 22:12, JESUS SAID, “And, behold, I COME QUICKLY; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

THE PILLAR MENTIONED IN REV 3:12 IS PROBABLY THE ONE NAMED BOAZ, WHICH MEANS “IN HIM IS STRENGTH”

The pillar Boaz stood on the left side of the door of the Temple, and represented the first Rapture.

The pillar on the right, representing the last Rapture, is named Jachin, which means “He will establish”.

Boaz ties in with Ruth, the Gentile believer. She married Boaz, the Israelite kinsman redeemer who represented Jesus.

Just as Ruth and Boaz married, the Bride of Christ will be married to Jesus. That is the Marriage of the Lamb.

Rev_19:7 says, “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.”

“IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR”

Mat 10:26 says, “there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.”

Luk 12:2 says, “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.”

Mar 4:22,23 says, “For there is NOTHING hid, which shall not be manifested (phaneroo, rendered apparent); neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 23  IF ANY MAN HAVE EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR.”

Rev 2:7 says, “HE THAT HATH AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”

Rev 13:5-9 says, “And there was given unto him (i.e., Antichrist) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (i.e., during the first half of the Tribulation). 6  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN (i.e., the wise-virgins just caught up Mid-Trib). 7  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (i.e., the foolish virgins left behind), and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9  IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR.”

THE COMING OF THE FALSE PROPHET AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST

Rev 13:16-18 says, "And he (i.e., the False Prophet) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

VICARIUS FILII DEI (i.e., Vicar of Christ), which is on the Pope's hat, equals 666 in Roman Numerals. He is assuming a position that was not given to him by Christ.

THE FIRST RAPTURE WILL BE ON THE DAY OF CHRIST

Php_1:10 says, "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ".

Php_2:16 says, "Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain."

Php_1:6 says, "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ".

Moses and Elijah come at the time of the Mid-Trib Rapture. Compare the Transfiguration and Rev 11:1-4.

THE TRANSFIGURATION

Mat 17:1-11 says, “And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2  And was transfigured before them: and HIS FACE DID SHINE AS THE SUN, AND HIS RAIMENT WAS WHITE AS THE LIGHT. 3  And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. 4  Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three TABERNACLES; one for thee, and one for MOSES, and one for ELIAS. 5  While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6  And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7  And Jesus came and touched them, and said, ARISE, and be not afraid. 8  And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 9  And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. 10  And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 11  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.”

THE PREVIEW OF THE RAPTURE

Rev 1:9-16 says, “I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10  I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (i.e., Day of Christ), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14  HIS HEAD AND HIS HAIRS WERE WHITE LIKE WOOL, AS WHITE AS SNOW; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.”

THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL BE MID-TRIB

Rev 11:1-4 says, “And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the Mid-Trib First-Trump Rapture), and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 3  And I will give power unto my two witnesses (i.e., Moses and Elijah), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4  These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth” (i.e., as in the Transfiguration).

THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL BE ON THE DAY OF THE LORD

Mal_4:5 (KJV) says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD”.

Act_2:20 says, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come”.

1Th_5:2 says, "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

2Pe_3:10 says, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”

PAUL EXPLAINED THE ORDER OF EVENTS, AND THE RAPTURE COMES BEFORE THE MAN OF SIN IS REVEALED

2Th 2:1-12 (HNV) says, "Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and our gathering together to him, we ask you not to be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet ne troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, saying that the day of Messiah (i.e., Day of the Lord, as in the Vatican, Alexandrine and Siniaticus codices) had come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless THE DEPARTURE (i.e., Rapture) COMES FIRST, AND THE MAN OF SIN IS REVEALED, THE SON OF DESTRUCTION, he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God."

The literal Temple will probably not be built until after the Temple of the Holy Spirit is caught up to Heaven.

It looks like the wise virgins will be caught up in the First-Trump Rapture (i.e., ITh 4:16,17) on the Day of Christ, Mid-Trib, before the False Prophet comes to power in the Great Tribulation, but woe unto the foolish virgins left behind. They will be tested. Those that pass their test will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture (ICo 15:51-54) on the Day of the Lord at the end of the Great Tribulation.

WHY ARE WE SUBJECTED TO THE FIRST HALF OF THE TRIBULATION?

Rom_5:3 says, "tribulation worketh patience".

Heb_10:36 says, "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise."

Jas_5:7 says, "Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain."

The former rain comes Tishri 1, and the latter rain comes Nisan 1. That might mean that the First-Trump Rapture will be on Tishri 1 and the Last-Trump Rapture will be on Nisan 1.

Jesus was born on Tishri 1, and will probably return on Nisan 1, the New Year for Kings.

Hos_6:3 says, "Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth."

Joe_2:23 says, "Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month."

Joe 2:1-3 says, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; 2  A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. 3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them."

It is interesting that when the capstone of the Pyramid of Giza is put in place, the pyramid will be 5776 inches tall.

See "The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh," 1883, by Prof. Sir William M. Flinders Petrie. In his Measurements of the Pyramids, Petrie said, "The mean base being 9,068.8 ± 0.5 inches, this yields a height of 5,776.0 ± 7.0 inches."

The pyramid is set in the center of the continents on bedrock that can support its tremendous weight. It lines up with the cardinal points of the compass, and its dimensions are very accurate.

The last day of the Hebrew year 5776 will be October 2, 2016. The sign in Rev. 12 will be in the sky. The Moon will be directly under Virgo's feet. Has that 5776 marked the time of the Rapture all this time? We will know soon.
