7 TIPS FOR PREPARING FOR THE GREAT TRIBULATION

 

 

1.       Cleanse yourself of every defilement of body and spirit, as necessary.

 

By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before Him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and He knows everything. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do what pleases Him. (1 John 3:19-22 ESV)

 

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9 ESV)

 

2.       Put on the whole armor of God.

 

…Be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might…

Take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day,

and having done all, to stand firm.

Stand, therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth,

and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.

In all circumstances, take up the shield of faith,

with which you can extinguish the flaming darts of the evil one;

and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God… (Ephesians 6:10, 13, 14-17 ESV)

 

3.       Pray. (For yourself, and for your brothers and sisters in Christ.)

 

To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints…

(Ephesians 6:18 ESV)

 

“But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:36 ESV)/"Watch ye, therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man." (KJV)

 

4.       Trust in the Lord.

(Take Him at His word, prove it for yourself, and stand on it---as though your LIFE depends upon it.)

 

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is in the LORD.

He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream,

and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green,

and is not anxious in the year of drought,

for it does not cease to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7,8 ESV)

 

5.       Prepare your mind to suffer for Christ’s sake---and look forward to the joy and rest to follow!

 

…Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2 ESV)

 

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when His glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4:12,13 ESV)

 

“Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy.” (John 16:20 ESV)

 

6.       Cast all your anxieties upon the Lord. (1 Peter 5:7)

 

When I am afraid, I put my trust in You. (Psalm 56:3 ESV)

 

When the cares of my heart are many, Your consolations cheer my soul. (Psalm 94:19 ESV)

 

7.       Keep a loose hand on everything you have (your possessions, your loved ones, and your own life)---and prepare to lose it all for Jesus.

 

“Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it.”

(Luke 17:33 ESV)

 

"Whoever loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me."  

(Matthew 10:37 ESV)

 

If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain.

Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. (Revelation 13:10 ESV)

 

 

----

“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,

Nor the heart of man imagined,

what God has prepared for those

who love Him.”

(1 Corinthians 2:9 ESV)

----

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro

throughout the whole earth,

to give strong support to those whose heart

is blameless toward Him.

(2 Chronicles 16:9 ESV)

Yes. Imagine an iron (red) planet getting closer and closer. It may pass beyond the orbit of the moon but is way bigger.

It blocks the sun. The night sky is dominated by a red moon. People are running to and fro. Noises jam up the communications satellites. This planet's electromagnetic effects make all communications impossible. People are frantic since they are lost without their phones and the web. Basic radio is intermittent. They crowd around the few receivers trying to find out what is happening.

The tidal effects are horrific. The earth bucks from the pull of the planet's gravity as it passes very slowly by.

All can see this huge apparition and do not know it will miss earth but cause huge volcanic disasters. Where can you go? What can you do? The few resources have been taken and armed gangs roam about taking what they want.

Many just crouch; catatonic with fear. Suddenly, ME is very important and we do not care on whos face we tread so long as ME is taken care of. Civilization as we thought we knew it is collapsing. 

Then they come and promise to take care of us. Who is able to resist? It must be from God. Right?

Im going to be frank right now. This pre trib saints and the poor souls that miss the train out of dodge defies intelligence. I was Assemblies of for several years and bought this idea hook line and sinker. I can only than God that challenged to prove it out. It is not scriptural but bits and pieces taken and re-fitted to say what it does not say. It is 100% fabricated and the merchandisers filled pews, wrote books, made movies and taking buckets of money to the bank. No lie is an incent lie. you cant take Gods word and us it for you own purposes. You bring judgment on your selves.

5 minutes ago, Daniel 11:36 said:

[Revelation 3:10-11]

That tells us that the Church will not suffer the wrath of God during the Tribulation. We will be gone in the rapture.

agreed, but we will suffer the wrath of Satan and he will kill a bunch of us.    We should not consider that a big deal though....

The wrath of Satan? Isn't that during the seven year tribulation? I will be taken out before the tribulation starts.
