Digging for truth

28th May 2021

In all these great and increasing troubles in the world right now, many people are turning to the occult, fortune tellers and the like. Many are retreating into themselves to find solace and many are digging for the real truth.

If unsaved, the deeper you retreat into yourself the closer to Satan you get. Man does not have the power or wisdom to run his life independent from God. With God removed, Satan fills the gap.

Without the Lord active in your life you are nothing but a blind tour-guide leading yourself to your own destruction.

Don’t ever forget Satan is the god of the world, the flesh and the demonic and fallen man has given him unrestricted access.

It is only through the personal application of the cross, dying to self and the world, that we can walk free and in peace in the midst of the evil mist.

The new satanically charged world order has redefined the things offensive to its god. You must now accept everything including false religions, false doctrines, false prophets, evil morality. Even Christians now believe that their knowledge will save them without deep repentance.

The new carnal Christian thinks he has found God. He has found another god and that’s for sure. Converts at no cost, without repentance, is the popular evil of the church today.

Many churches today have become so watered down and spineless, they can’t even see their shameful state, because the world is their standard of measure. They can’t hear God’s voice so they manufacture a voice.

A lie and mistruth never becomes right because the majority hold that view, or because you saw it on YouTube.

With self as the arbitrator, or umpire of your life, you will fit in well with the world. And there you will find the same god that has led you astray all your life, enthroned as god of the world. The world will reassure you that all is okay and you will assure the world that you are another cog in the machine.

You will even think your god is God. Your blindness will mistake the devil for God!

Today the world’s oldest most prolific sin, pride is soaring to new heights.

The Angel of light becomes the prince of darkness by the sin of pride. God doesn’t share His throne except with true resurrected believers, who have gone through the cross and left their pride shattered on the ground.

Coming to the truth in repentance is clean, encouraging and fulfilling. The closer you move to the living God, the more clearly you see the deception of the world.

On the other hand there are so many searching for the truth today and so many who have found it are moving deeper into the things of God. I know that for a fact by the feedback I get from so many TPS readers, who have become friends and supporters albeit via the internet. Thank you all for your continued support and walking together.

We are in a world of fast growing hunger for the truth of God’s word together with fast growing, “who cares, I don’t give a damn!”

At the end of the day called life, there is only one all-important thing that counts. Is your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? If it is, your works will count as well. If not you have wasted your entire life – all of it, your good works too.

Imagine the shock and horror of thinking you were a good person and standing before the Lord at the Great White Throne Judgement, not being born-again. These are the words that will ring in your ears forever after: Anyone not found written in the Lamb’s book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15) Or the horrifying words: “Depart from Me I never knew you.” (Matthew 7:23)

The rapture / tribulation is racing ahead:

The post-tribbers always like to claim that there is no secret rapture. They say there will only be one general rapture at the end of the tribulation. But have a look at these two verses:

1 Corinthians 15:51 (Geneva Bible) Behold I show a secret thing, we shall not all sleep (die), but we shall all be changed in a moment in a twinkling of an eye...”

Revelation 1:7 “...Every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him, and all tribes of the earth shall mourn because of Him.” (Luke 21:27)

I hope you see the irreconcilable difference. The former is all about the rapture and the latter, the Second Coming. Bang goes the post-tribber’s argument! Pretty neat hey?

Time is short my friends and getting shorter fast. The tribulation period, preceded by the rapture will not occur at any time (imminence). It will not occur because of all the troubles in the world, although judgement on the world will be secondary.

The tribulation will begin because Israel breaks God’s pre-existing covenant with Israel and makes a new strong covenant in its place with the person who is to be revealed as the antichrist by the making of this new strong covenant. It has nothing at all to do with the Deal of the Century or the Abraham Accords – nothing at all.

Here is the reason for the tribulation:

Isaiah 24:1-6 “Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and distorts its surface. It shall be; as with the people, so with the priest...The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away; the haughty (proud) people of the earth languish. The earth is defiled under its inhabitants...they have broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth...therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few are left.”

More on this: Hosea 8:1-3 and Daniel 11:32.

God’s eternal covenant with Israel was with the children of Israel, the land of Israel, the city of Jerusalem and blessing upon the Jews. This covenant was made with Abraham and passed on down to all generations of Israel.

The “Deal of the Century” was never about a seven-year peace treaty in exchange for land and is now dead as a duck anyway.

The Abraham Accords come nowhere near any sort of violation of God’s existing covenant or a seven year peace for land deal. Those who keep claiming the Accords are part of the Daniel 9:27 agreement are totally ignorant of the facts and the voice of the Spirit.

Let’s make one thing very clear, Israel will make “an agreement with hell” (Isaiah 28:15-18) on this and anger God.

But it is also the sin of the world that finally comes under judgment in the tribulation and beyond. And it is wild indeed. Consider this shocking but secretly wonderful verse:

Matthew 23:35 “On you will come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Assuredly, I say all these things will come upon this generation.” (Tribulation)

The tribulation will see the culmination of judgement on all man’s sin in that seven year period in the most severe destruction and terror the world has ever seen.

But the secret in the verse is this:

The rapture of the true born-again church takes place before this all kicks off. This is when the world switches over to Jewish time again.

What to me is very exciting is seeing just how ministries have awakened to the end-time message and just how many are preaching on the rapture. Let the awakening continue!

Shalom...Joel
