This Week's Sermon ( 3-24-20 )

" And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: "   Revelation 6:9
" And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. "   Revelation 20:4

The rapture, when Jesus returns and descends only to the clouds, those of us who are still here will be caught up with those who died and came back with Jesus for their new resurrected body and Jesus take us to Heaven.

After the rapture takes place when Jesus returns, there will be people who realized the Bible was right about this return of Jesus.

They will become believers and put their faith in Jesus.

According to what John said in the book of Revelation, some of them will be in the 7 year tribulation and will die because of their faith in Jesus and refusing to take the mark of the antichrist.

This is the time frame when the so called peacemaker will reveal his true identity.

What is also sad is that because believers in Jesus during the 7 year tribulation who refuse to take the mark of the antichrist, they will not be allowed to buy food for themselves and their family.

Some might even starve to death.

But John said in Revelation that these believers in Jesus who will suffer, the Lord will bless them big time.

Keep your faith in Jesus and in Him alone.

Keep watching for Jesus to return.

He may be returning sooner than we think.

With this coronavirus outbreak all over the world now, it could be a sign the return of Jesus in the rapture could be close.
