Men of God for centuries have prophesied or given several insights concerning the coming of the Lord. Some of the messages are direct and some are not. Several come to individuals as dreams and visions, pointing to some strange events that will come upon the world. Some will occur before, and others after the translation of many people from the earth; who definitely were expecting such to occur. The Lord will only appear to those looking for Him (Hebrews 9:28). Daniel prophesied about the end time and the death of Christ Jesus. He talked about the ten European nations, the little horn, the man of sin, the covenant of death with the anti-Christ, the resurrection of the dead and the judgment that would lead to the end. Daniel 12:13 reads, “But go thy way till the end be: for thou shall rest and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.” We are now approaching the end of the days. Look around you and see, even the vast population of the earth tells you that it is like the days of Noah, as Jesus prophesied in Matt. 24:37-39. Also, Genesis 6:1-3 tells of the population increase that occurred in the days of Noah before the flood judgment.
Apostle Paul wrote about the coming of the end in no uncertain terms. These include:
- 2nd Thessalonians 2:1-17 where he wrote about the end of days, which includes our gathering together unto our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming, the falling away and the revelation of that man of sin, the son of perdition. “And now you know what with withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time” (v.6).
- “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way and then shall that wicked be revealed; ——but we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God had from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth” (vs. 7 & 13)..
- In 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18 he wrote about the translation and how the Lord himself will come and that the dead in Christ will rise from the graves and the faithful Christians who hold fast to their belief in Christ will all be caught up together in the air to be with the Lord.
- In 1st Corinthians 15:51-58, we see a similar admonition saying, “We shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed: in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, and mortal shall have put on immortality.”
These are few of what God revealed to Paul about the last days and the translation of the true believers. Brothers William Marion Branham, Neal Vincent Frisby and Charles Price spoke and wrote about the people of God around the translation time and about the signs and events that God revealed to them that would be in the world around the coming of the Lord and the translation. Do yourself a favor; search and diligently study their messages and revelations from the Lord.
Today, God is revealing His coming to different people. These revelations and the word of God will judge the people who miss the translation at the end. Unfortunately, many people do not believe the mercy of God to them, even in their personal dreams, about the warnings of God relating to the end times. Many of us Christians cannot deny such revelations. A brother had a dream, a couple of years ago, twelve years to be exact, this October. He was given the same statement three consecutive days (in a row). The statement was simple, “Go and tell it is no longer that I am coming soon, but that I had already left and on my way.” Simple, but that changes the tempo of things if you appreciate the statement. Realize that this same dream and statement repeated three days in a row.
After ten years, the brother was told by the Lord that every Christian should consider himself/herself to be at an airport terminal, ready for departure and that making and missing the flight has do with the individual’s position about Galatians 5: 19-23. The scripture enumerates the fruit of the Spirit the works of the flesh.
Last year, while praying at about 3 am, a sister heard a voice that said that the train that would carry the children of God to glory had arrived. A few weeks later a brother had a dream. A man appeared to him and said, “The Lord sent me to ask you; do you know that the craft that will carry the children of God glory had arrived?” The brother responded, “Yes I know; the only thing going on now is that those who are going are preparing themselves in holiness (separation from the world unto God) and purity.”
This year was a different one because the Lord spoke to the brother in a clear language that said, “Tell my people to wake up, stay awake, for this is no time to sleep.” Are we approaching or in the midnight hour? The night is far spent the day is approaching. Wake up, those that are sleeping now. If you do not wake up now, you may never wake up until after the translation is come and gone. The sure way to keep awake is to lend your ears to receive the true and pure Word of God. Examine yourself by the Word of God and see where you are standing. The Word of God to the church of Ephesus in Revelation 2:5 reads, “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works.” Stay away from the works of the flesh; that demonically lull you into spiritual sleep (Galatians 5:19-21); read Romans 1:28-32, Colossians 3: 5-10 and so on).
Three months later the Lord impressed on the brother to tell the people: be prepared [for the coming of the Lord], be focused, do not be distracted, do not procrastinate, submit to Lord and do not play God in your life or in the lives of others. Study these with the stories of Daniel and the lions’ den, Ruth and her return to Judah with Naomi, the three Hebrew children and the fiery fire furnace and David and Goliath.
Staying awake is important at this time, because time is running out. Remember, Matt. 26:45 where Jesus said unto His disciples, “Sleep on now.” Definitely this is no time to be sleeping. Stay awake so that your light may shine, and you may be able to answer the door the first time the Lord knocks. Stay awake by putting on the Lord Jesus Christ and making no provision for the flesh to fulfill the lust thereof (Romans 13:14). Walk in the Spirit and be led by the Spirit (Galatians 3:21-23, Colossians 3: 12-17 and so on). Be in expectancy of the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. In an hour you think not the Son of man will come. Be ye ready, be sober, watch and pray. Prepare, focus, do not be distracted, do not procrastinate and do not play God but submit yourself to the word of God.
