Easter Suicide Bombing A Preview Of The Persecution Christians Will Face During The Tribulation?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Death Abstract - Public DomainAt least 65 people were killed and at least 300 were injured when an Islamic suicide bomber targeted a group of Christians that were celebrating Easter in a park in Lahore, Pakistan on Sunday.  Photographs and videos from the scene show bodies that are absolutely covered in blood and that are mangled beyond description.  To be honest, many of them are so graphic that I would not feel comfortable sharing them with my readers.  This brutal attack comes right on the heels of the horrific terror bombings in Brussels, Belgium, and it appears that we have entered a period of time when there will be a feeding frenzy of Islamic terrorism.  According to Wikipedia, there have been 96 such terror attacks since the start of 2016 alone, and this is already shaping up to be a record setting year for Islamic terror.  But of course this is just the beginning.  What we will see in the months and years to come will be far worse.  In fact, attacks like the one that we witnessed on Easter are just a very small preview of the persecution that Christians will experience during the coming Tribulation period.

This suicide bombing in Lahore was particularly reprehensible because it targeted women and children.  In fact, the Daily Mail is reporting that “most of the victims are believed to be women and children”…

Suicide bombers have killed at least 65 people and injured more than 300 more in an attack aimed at Christians in a park in Pakistan.

The blast happened in the parking area of Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, Lahore, a few metres away from children’s swings, and most of the victims are believed to be women and children.

Authorities have so far confirmed the deaths of 65 people at the park, where Christians had been celebrating Easter, but they expect the death toll to rise.

How could someone do that?

How could someone strap on a bomb and dive into a crowd of women and children at a park?

Incredibly, many mainstream news reports in the United States do not even mention that Christians were the target of this attack.  Just check out this CNN article where there are no mentions of Christians at all.  The political correctness of our mainstream media continues to extend to ridiculous new extremes.

The same thing could also be said of our politicians.  During his weekend radio address, Barack Obama reaffirmed his commitment to bring in 100,000 new refugees this year despite the recent suicide bombings…

In a brief Easter weekend radio address, President Obama vowed to decimate the self-proclaimed Islamic State, but he said the United States will do so by offering an example of freedom, tolerance and open society.

“Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL’s violence; our determination to win the battle against ISIL’s hateful and violent propaganda — a distorted view of Islam that aims to radicalize young Muslims to their cause,” are paramount in the fight, Obama told Americans during his weekly radio address.

Admitting entry to Syrian and Iraqi refugees has become a divisive issue in the U.S. as well as Europe, but Obama made clear he has no plan to back off his promise to admit 100,000 to the U.S. this year.

And as I have written about previously, Obama’s refugee program appears to be specifically targeting small towns in the most conservative parts of America.

When will people wake up?

All over the world, violence against Christians is rising.

Could what we have seen so far be the leading edge of a wave of persecution that will reach a crescendo during the coming Great Tribulation?

Unfortunately, the vast majority of Christians in the western world have not been prepared for the persecution that is coming because they have been taught that they won’t be around to face it.

I have just released my brand new book entitled “The Rapture Verdict” which addresses this controversy.  It is 37 chapters long, and it comprehensively demonstrates that the rapture comes immediately after the coming seven year Tribulation period (Matthew 24, Mark 13 etc.) and so Christians are going to be here to face the Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast and the horrifying persecution of believers described in the book of Revelation.

Of course believers in the Middle East, Africa, North Korea, China, India and elsewhere around the globe are already enduring immense persecution.  If you tried to tell them that they were going to get out of here before anything bad happened to them they would just laugh at you.

For the first 1800 years of church history, the overwhelmingly dominant viewpoint was that Christians were going to have to go through the entire seven year Tribulation period and that Jesus would come back when it was over.  But in the western world today, most Christians are completely and totally unprepared to face the persecution that is coming, and most of them have made absolutely no preparations for the difficult years to come because they have put all of their chips on the idea of a pre-Tribulation rapture.

Once upon a time I believed in a pre-Tribulation rapture too.  I have been immersed in the world of Bible prophecy all of my life, and as I was growing up I just trusted what “the experts” had to say.  I read their books, I bought their DVD, I watched their television shows and I went to their conferences.

But whenever the Bible speaks about the timing of the rapture, it always says that it comes after the Tribulation is over.  In my book, I break this down in excruciating detail, and I go over the most common arguments used by those that believe in a pre-Trib or mid-Trib rapture.

I certainly do not intend to upset my brothers and sisters that are pre-Trib or mid-Trib.  I love all of my brothers and sisters in Christ, and learning to love one another is far more important than “winning a debate” about these matters.  In the end, we shouldn’t just blindly trust what any of “the experts” are saying.  We all need to be good Bereans and look into the Scriptures for ourselves to see if these things are true.

Without a doubt, the second coming of Jesus is something that God wanted us to understand.  It is mentioned approximately 300 times in the New Testament alone, which breaks down to about once every 25 verses.  If we weren’t supposed to focus on this, there wouldn’t be such a vast amount of material in the Bible about it.

In Matthew 24:21, Jesus warns us that just prior to His return we would experience a time that would be more horrible than anything the world has ever seen before or will ever see again.

But for the moment, Christians in the western world have it quite easy.  In fact, the only violence on Easter in the western world this year came during an Easter egg hunt

An Easter egg hunt descended into chaos on Saturday after parents in Orange, Connecticut, stormed the field.

Children as young as four were trampled by adults in a rampage to steal buckets and grab as many of the 9,000 hidden eggs as possible from the third annual free event at the PEZ headquarters.

One four-year-old son was left ‘bloody’ on the sports field and a two-year-old girl was shoved into the mud, witnesses claimed.

A horrified parent described the scene as ‘an angry mob of chaos’ with ‘not one toddler hunting for eggs’ among the crowds of adults.

We should enjoy this time of relative stability while we can, because things are most definitely going to be changing.

Hatred for Christians is rapidly rising all over the planet, and eventually deciding whether to be a Christian or not will be a life or death matter.

When that times comes, which side of the fence will you be on?

  • Jorma

    If the Rapture occurs after the Tribulation, and other biblical versus state that the Holy Spirit is removed (the restrainer) before the tribulation begins (Temple Mount desolation), and other versus state that Christians are temples to the Spirit…what you are saying is that God is going to abandoned Christians at their gravest hour, without the Holy Spirit who will even be present. But this argument has become timeless and we should probably be more focused in being a fruitful Christian each day we are alive than to worry about the Rapture at this point. The fullness of the Gentiles should be our worry that we get each and every one we can, than asking or worrying about when do we get our parachute to bail.

    • Sam

      Amen Jorma… Amen. I do not believe we will be here for that Main Event for the exact reasons you state. But if we are, then we are. We are His servants, not our own.

    • Joan Camara

      So, there’s people who think that only the bad will go trough the tribulation, and the good christians will be wisked away, not a hair harmed on them. Boy, what a dream!

      • Sam

        JC – there are no “good” people.. Christian or otherwise.. only God is good.. period. For all ( all ) have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.. that’s why, as I am sure you are aware, that Jesus came and died and most importantly, was resurrected .. so that any who believe in Him would not perish, but would have everlasting life since His sinless life was and is viewed by God as being the blood payment required for our sinfulness. God proved his acceptance of that offering by raising Him from the dead.

        • Joan Camara

          Wow, talk about someone taking me so literally! Yes, I did know ALL that! But I’m gonna have to disagree with ya on the “good” people. There are MANY good people in this world, I don’t care if you don’t think so. I’ll leave that as YOUR opinion.

      • Paul in NC

        Do you think God is going to pour his wrath out on his bride???

        When will the marriage supper of the Lamb occur?

        The last part of the second half of Daniles 70th week will be “he’ll on earth” not because of the anti Christ persecuting Christians, but, because God’s on wrath will be poured out on a rebellious earth. Their will be those who take the mark and follow Satan (these are the recipients of God’s final wrath), and their are those who are killed by not taking the mark.

        Many confuse these beheadings with the wrath of God spoken of, I am not sure they are the same.

        Just a thought.

        JC, You think Christ is coming for sick , dirty, bloody bride? NOT

    “Hatred for Christians is rapidly rising all over the planet, and eventually deciding whether to be a Christian or not will be a life or death matter. What that times comes, which side of the fence will you be on?”

    I like what the Apostle Paul said to the elders at Ephesus.

    “And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:22-24

    • Joan Camara

      How bout you bring out Revelations? Where it says, to take the mark or be beheaded? What people is satan going to use to do that? Get your faith strong, because these people whose book says “convert or die”, are going to be the ones.

      • Guest

        It’s Revelation, not Revelations. And my faith is strong, Joan.

        • 2smooth

          Please dont be Dont be a rude grammer natzi

          • Guest

            Are you serious? Read your comment. You can’t even spell “grammar” correctly! You also spelled “nazi” incorrectly.

          • MadMagyar

            How about you using proper spelling, punctuation and quit giving people in other countries a reason to call Americans uneducated boors?

  • Lynn Marie Collver

    How could someone do that ? You know they believe allah rewards them so let’s at least write in a manner that educates those who don’t know as opposed to fear mongering .

  • K

    In the past Christians had to meet in secret, but meet they did. If these times come again. It will be up to us who live in the remote areas, to open our doors.

    • Joan Camara

      I hope you know Revelations. Our faith is going to be tested, when it comes down to, take the mark, or be beheaded. Satan’s people will be in charge of that. No wonder they are spreading like roaches to all these countries. They be in charge of governments soon enough, and then the mark comes. It won’t be “convert or die” then. It will be as I said above. Get your faith strong, because satan is getting his people ready to test it.

      • 2smooth

        Looks like the mark of the beat will be,accepting islam.

        • watchmannonthewall

          While there may be a literal mark, it is really a spiritual sign. Both man and animals were created on the 6th day of Creation. The difference between Adam and the animals was that God breathed the “Breath of Life” into Adam. Scripture teaches anyone without God’s “Breath of Life” is a beast.

          Solomon said God has tested man so he can see he is but a beast (OT-Ecc. 3:18) and Paul said (NT-1 Cor. 15:32) he fought with “wild beasts” at Ephesus. We understand he was talking about men. When Scripture uses the term “beast of the field” it can be referring to either literal beasts or to unregenerated mankind.

          The sign of destruction at the Exodus for the Egyptians was the LACK of blood on their doorposts. The sign of those marked for destruction in Ezekiel 9 was the LACK of God’s mark on their foreheads. In Revelation 7 there is an interlude between the opening of the 6th and 7th seals where the angels waiting to release the trumpet judgments are told, “Do not harm the earth, or the sea, or the trees, until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads.” (7:3) Let’s be bond-servants!

          The LACK of God’s mark is actually the mark of the beast. We are either a “Yes” or a “No”! We are told in Revelation 12 that those who keep the commandments of God (His mark?) are the ones being persecuted. In that day, obeying God will mark you as not belonging to the One World Government or NWO. You will not have to be a Muslim to accept the mark.
          If you do not have Jesus/Yeshua, you already have it! It will be very easy for many to transition right into this system and persecute those who refuse!

          • Preacher62

            Agreed. The mark on the forehead or on the hand are symbolic of what one believes and what one does in response to that belief. When one no longer believes in God as sovereign and then turns away from him and to the protection/provision of the government then the mark has been fulfilled.

          • Joan Camara

            DO WHAAAAT? And you call yourself “preacher”?? Really, you people are killing me, with your ignorance. You two are soo lost in the’s unbelievable! I bet you’ll eat all that chemicalized, GMO food in the grocery store too, don’t ya? No wonder you’ll ain’t got no sense. How bout trying to clean your fogged up minds with some clean food…you know? what they call “organic”?? I did, and I feel, and look a heck of a lot better for it. My brain is clear…clear enough to know you’ll are just weird….sorry, just can’t help the name calling….when the shoe fits…

            Revelation 13:16-17King James Version (KJV)

            16 And he 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,

          • Preacher62

            Yes but you are going to have to say or do something to prove a rejection of Jesus Christ in order to receive that mark if it is a literal mark. Be very careful, people are often seriously hurt falling from their high horses.

          • Joan Camara

            NO, you don’t have to do anything or say anything to prove your rejection…you just say that you want to be able to buy or sell….and bam, you get the mark. Want groceries? Their probably have they system RIGHT there, just waiting for you. Like signing up for the first you get one of those grocery loyalty cards…’ll be soooooo easy….satan wants it that way…

          • Preacher62

            I believe the mark will be advertised as a rejection of Christ just as choosing our own life or the world rather than following Jesus is currently, but I guess we will all find out soon enough.

          • Joan Camara

            Look here, if a muslim does NOT give up his Islamic religion, then he is with satan…there is NO other religion, that tells you MANY times in their “book” that you MUST “convert or die”
            And you really need to know that this is a PHYSICAL mark IN..the right hand or forehead…it says so right here:

            Revelation 13:16-17King James Version (KJV)

            16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

            and whoever gets this mark..will be able to buy or sell. Nice huh? But guess what…YOU BELONG TO SATAN NOW, AND YOUR GOING TO HELL! Why do you think christians have to be so strong in faith for??

            What are you telling 2smooth THIS for??

            “If you do not have Jesus/Yeshua, you already have it!”

          • watchmannonthewall

            There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of religions and Islam is just ONE of them. I would not single Islam out as being the only false religion. There may be others of different religions who refuse this specific “mark of the beast” but still have the mark of their own religion. That mark is still not God’s mark, is it?
            If you have God’s mark, you belong to Him. Revelation 7:3 says, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads.” If you have ANY other “mark”, not just that of Islam, you belong to some other god.
            If this seems unreasonable to you, just make sure you don’t take any mark that is not of God. His Word obviously says He has people He is going to mark a certain way, also. My position is one can tell who these people are by the way they follow the Scriptural commandments, not by the miracles they do. (Deut. 13:1-4, Mt 7:15-23)

        • Mike


        • Joan Camara

          Yes, what other religion says to “convert or die” in their so called “bible”. NONE. Too many other verses that say basically…you will be killed for being an unbeliever……this IS satan’s religion

      • James James

        You should take a look into Islamic eschatology. Right now, in many Muslim countries and areas, non-Muslims must either pay the jizyah (tax), convert, or die. However, ALL Muslims believe that ‘Jesus’ (their version of who Jesus is…not really Jesus but a Luciferian character) will return on earth for 40 years, will remarry, ABOLISH the jizyah, and will essentially ENFORCE the beheading of non-Muslims that refuse to convert. So when he returns, non-Muslims no longer have the luxury to pay the tax: Now they must convert to Islam or DIE by BEHEADING! Sound like the Jesus you know? Islam is literally concocted by Satan himself. Muhammad’s first intuition was right that the entity/spirit that approached him in the cave was EVIL! The spirit tried to choke him, nearly to death, not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES!

        Muhammad was an EVIL man to be sure. At first his ‘revelations’ were peaceful, that is true. This was when he lived in Mecca, and had very few converts to his new religion. He and his followers were chased out of Mecca and headed for Medina. Soon his followers were unhappy at their plight, being so poor and not having their needs met. So Muhammad then began raiding caravans on their way back to Medina from trading goods afar. He and his converts MURDERED those in the caravans and shared the plunder.

        At one point the leaders of Medina attempted to teach Muhammad a lesson once and for all for him raiding these caravans and dispatched an ‘army,’ for lack of a better term, to kill him. However, he and his followers received word of the plan, foiled it and ended up defeating them. Now Muhammad was the most powerful man in Medina This would prove to be a turning point for Muhammad and his new religion, Islam. Now that he had the power, fame, women, and wealth his ‘revelations’ began to change. Prior to this there was no ‘compulsion’ in religion and people were free to choose whether or not they wanted to convert to Islam. But after his change in status, he received ‘revelations’ that there was now to be ‘compulsion’ in religion. Now non-Muslims were forced to pay the jizyah, convert, or die, and that was IF they were lucky. There are records of many occasions of Muhammad’s followers either just killing non-Muslims without giving them a chance to convert, or leaving them with only two choices: convert or die. Muhammad gave his blessing to his followers for these murders. On one occasion, and I can’t remember the name of the town/village, but Muhammad and his followers surrounded a Jewish town and rounded up all the men, about 600 in number. The towns people did NOTHING to Muhammad, this was purely offensive in nature. Muhammad ordered all of the 600 men to be BEHEADED!

So in the Quran you have the earlier ‘peaceful’ verses and the later ‘violent’ ones. As a result their ‘holy’ book is left with numerous contradictions. In order to resolve these glaring contradictions, a principle known as ‘nasikh’ is introduced or employed. Nasikh is the principle that later ‘revelations’ trump or overwrite earlier ‘revelations’ where a contradiction exists. In other words, Allah was continually revealing his will and certain truths over time. Hence, the violent verses in the Quran make-up pure, unadulterated Islam. 

(Please correct any details that I may have missed or misstated. For example, I may have used Mecca where Medina is the correct city, and vice versa.)

  • Paul Patriot

    But Islam is a peaceful religion……………..NOT!!!!!!!!

    Wherever Islam is allowed to take root, sharia law will follow which will lead to death, destruction and oppression. If you look back at HISTORY from when Islam was established, it will verify that as true and correct.

    So, then why do spineless politicians bow to the altar of political correctness and kiss the buttocks of Muslim who whine and cry about being “discriminated” against and criticize those who speak of the true intent of Islam as islamphobia????????

    When will folks extract their heads from their behinds and finally begin to learn that the religion itself is more than a religion, It is also an ideology that wants to force its worldview on all the infidels around the world, with a special hatred for r Judaism and Christianity.

    • Joan Camara

      If you know the bible, you would know that Satan is on this earth, untill Jesus comes back. I, myself, agree, whole-heartedly with your comment. This is satan’s religion, if there ever was one. I say, I would agree with ANY OTHER ethnic group and religon in this country, EXCEPT Islam! We must remain strong against Satan, and our faith is being tested, till the last day. It is said in Revelation that anyone who doesn’t take the mark (to buy or sell) will be beheaded. Who does beheadings these days? No wonder, then, that these muslims are running by the thousands to every country? Soon they’ll be enough, for them to be in control of all governments. Then the mark comes. Scary, but our faith must not waiver!

      • Paul Patriot

        Amen Joan. May Grace be with you and yours in these last days.

        • Joan Camara

          Thank You Paul….as with you

      • watchmannonthewall

        This situation is a fulfillment of a combination of two propheies given in Genesis, one by God and one by Isaac. Genesis 25:23b- God to Rebekah, “Two peoples shall be seperated from your body; and the one people shall be stronger than the other”. Genesis 27:40- Isaac to Esau, “And by your sword you shall live, and your brother [Jacob] you shall serve; but it shall come about when you become restless, that you shall break his yoke from off your neck.” The Hebrew word translated as “restless” can have the meaning, “have the dominion, be lord.”
        Time after time Scripture teaches us the lesson that when God’ people refuse to obey Him, disrespect His Word, Esau (who also married descendents of Ishmael and Canaan and these make up all current ME nations), is always able to overcome, is always “stronger” than Israel. Howeverm, when God’s people are walking in His paths, His people are “stronger” than Esau’s! Today is no different.
        Which nation or people is the stronger is always dependent on whether God’s people are in obedience to Him! if they aren’t, as it is today, Esau will be the stronger and God will use Esaus descendents to bring discipline upon His people. They are coming for anyone who believes in the God of Israel but isn’t living in union with His Word. We are not in covenent, if we are breaking it! Esau was a hunter, and Ismael an archer. (See Jer. 16:16-17 for current day fulfillment.)

  • Jessica Warren

    I am prepared either way as God sees fit. But I do not believe what we are seeing is anything compared to what the persecution of the tribulation looks like. Think publicly airef from some world government center, the way CNN airs entire Senate meetings and court hearings. Think trains full of those to be persecuted, much like WWII only more like they arrive every 8 minutes like the ones in Grand Central. Think government sponsored raids on Church buildings during service, here in America. Churches have to go underground. We may still be raptured before all of that even begins. If not, I am prepared, as well as one might ever be.

    • Joan Camara

      I’m so happy to hear you say, that if your not raptured before then, then you’ll still be prepared. That’s better thinking than I’ve seen in some people, who think their going to be wisked away, and let just the bad people go through the tribulation. Keep your faith, because when the mark comes to buy or sell, we might have to be strong enough to be the ones beheaded…and maybe you can guess who satan uses to have that happen? Hint…the “convert or die” religion ones?

  • David

    2 things I have to ask on this article Michael:
    1. Barack Obama reaffirmed his commitment to bring in 100,000 new refugees this year:
    how is it our American Government can do a proper background check
    on these Syrian Refugees if their Government has been Bombed back to the stone age?
    2. Jesus says we need to Love one another and we need to follow this & all his commandments if we are to receive the Kingdom of Heaven.
    Jesus once said that just to Love your Brother or Sister what reward is there in that? But to Love your enemies is where your greatest reward shall come from. so is it Born again Christians need to Overcome The Great Tribulation, Face Persecution & Hatred from our enemies in order to Receive God’s Greatest Reward? I don’t know if you have the answer but I Greatly value your opinion.

    1 Thessalonians:1:10

    “and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.”

    Yes things are getting bad now but still nowhere near what it will be like during the coming tribulation, which Jesus will rescue the believers of this age from prior to it happening.

    • Joan Camara

      You don’t think we’ll go through the tribulation? Jesus died for you…you don’t think he’ll want you to return the favor? Or even test your faith? Revelations says you will take a mark or be beheaded. Who do you think satan is going to use to do that? Think about it. So we’re not going to be here, for the trumpets, the seals, the bowls, etc? All the bad people are the only ones that will suffer? We’re too good for Jesus to not have us suffer? I can’t say anything else, I’ll just pray you won’t be mad at God, when He doesn’t come to take you away from His anger that’s coming. Keep the faith!

        We will go through the Great Tribulation (The Seven-Sealed Scroll/The Beginning of Sorrows).

        We will not go through the Day of the Lord/Wrath of God.

        Rev 7:13-14 –
        13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
        14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation…

        John sees this multitude of Christians in Heaven (sixth seal) BEFORE the Wrath of God is poured upon the earth (seventh seal).

  • Kent Harris

    You are a true brother in Christ. It is difficult to phantom that Christians will be here until Christ’s return but that is clearly what Jesus said. What he said and what Revelation says about what will occur is beyond anything mankind has ever seen before. It would make the Holocaust look like child’s play and the pure devastation would be marked not by millions of deaths but by billions of deaths. 7 years in which mankind will literally be brought to near extinction. If we remain it will be because of the will of God and nothing else. We will truly know God in such a powerful way like those many saints that have gone before us and that we will be welcomed into heaven for the testimony of the cross.

      Thank you.

      • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

        Can’t promise you that. It’s just that there is so much wrong with these apocalyptic scenarios (at least those that have taken hold of the popular imagination) that it’s hard not to make fun of them. For instance, in the movie “Left Behind”, pets are left behind presumably to suffer neglect and slow death while their Christian owners are transported to heaven and rejoicing in celestial bliss…really? Are Christians that cold-hearted? Is your deity that mean? Also, cars without occupant crash, leading to injury and death…your God would make you an unwilling accomplice to manslaughter? What a guy! Also, all the kids vanish. Why? Why the hell would all the children be spared from the wrath to come? The children of Jericho didn’t get any special favors. And so many Christians believe all this.

        • Rhialto the Marvellous

          It’s a mistake to think your morality is higher than God’s.
          You think your way seems right, but there’s one thing you don’t know –
          God says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.”
          Please think about how much higher God is than you or me. You have an open door to encounter God if you want it.

          • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

            Should I throw my compassion and morality out the window for the sake of religion? And if the Most High says he is just, and demands that we be just -“Justice, justice ye shall pursue”- then we should expect the very same from Him. To forcibly remove people from their beloved animals, and to use them against their will to kill other human beings is absolutely evil. It is not a higher way.

          • Rhialto the Marvellous

            Yes, you should throw your compassion and morality out the window.
            When you give up yourself to find Christ, you will find that his person is indeed higher than yours.
            Jesus told the story of “the pearl of great price” – a merchant sold all he had in order to obtain a marvelous treasure. That is what anyone who wants God must do – give up everything in order to gain even greater.

            Simply put, you must trust God to be good.

          • Gay Veteran

            “Yes, you should throw your compassion and morality out the window…..”

            understandable if you believe in a bible where “god” ordered the murder of children and babies. truly a religious fanatic

    Once saved always saved….would the mark of the beast change that? If the rapture is after the tribulation would it be possible for a saved individual to take the mark and lose their salvation due to fear, weakness and/or desperation?

    • Rhialto the Marvellous

      There is a confusion of terms regarding the Tribulation:
      – There is a 7-yr period before the Second Coming of Christ (when Christ again steps foot on earth)
      – The first 3 1/2 years of this period is called “The Great Tribulation”. Christians will be on earth during this period.

      – the Rapture of the Church

      – The second 3 1/2 years is “The Day of the Lord”. The Mark of the Beast comes during this period.

      • Gay Veteran

        confusion? how can that be?

  • DJohn1

    There is a reason why Donald Trump tops the polls as a possible candidate for President on the Republican Side of the fence.
    Every life snuffed out by these terrorists is a nail in the coffin of every “peaceful” Muslim out there. It is quickly becoming a war.
    The real question is whether or not we give sanctuary to those “peaceful” Muslims or not?
    One of the leading questions is whether or not we are gathering together a nest of scorpions? Because if it is in their very nature to kill people not of their faith then we have a real problem with importing any body of that religion into this country period.
    Yes, we have a President willing to take that chance.
    No, I do not think he is right to do so.
    I do think that there are innocents out there of all faiths.
    The correct answer to me is to place them in a neutral country that will give them the freedom to practice their own religion without being disturbed. They bring with them too much baggage from their own culture and their own customs. That is why you see all these people dead in Europe.
    That does not mean that there are not good people out there that just want to be left in peace to practice their religion. It means that amongst those people are the ones willing to kill.
    It is not the place of this country with our leaders to allow that killing to happen. So by all means keep them out.
    I think Europe is on the verge of evicting all the refugees because of the scorpions amongst them. Where they plan to evict them to is still a matter of debate.

  • DJohn1

    The real question I have here is: Are we willing to let a President do what he is doing with our immigration laws or not?
    Because if he plans on letting a whole lot of undesirable people into this country in violation of those immigration laws, perhaps it is time to call for his removal from office for conducting unbecoming a President.
    In other words, get that lazy Congress off their behinds and impeach him before he can do more damage.

  • Rhialto the Marvellous

    When you see Israel rebuilding the Temple, GET READY.

    The Antichrist will be revealed when he stands in the Holy Place in Israel’s rebuilt Temple, showing himself as God. Then, for 3 1/2 years, Christians will undergo “Great Tribulation”:
    – Many proclaiming that they are Christ
    – Worldwide war
    – Economic collapse and Famine
    – Widespread Death (in which 1/4 of earth’s population will die)
    – Great natural upheavals – earthquakes, etc
    – Great Persecution/Martyrdom

    Next will come:
    “The Wrath of God”/”The Day of the Lord”/”Jacob’s Trouble”. This period will also last 3 1/2 years.
    Because The Church is to be removed before this time, God will seal 144,000 Jews to be his witnesses to the earth.Then Christians will be removed, because God WILL NOT pour out his wrath upon his church (1 Th 5:9 “God hath not appointed us to wrath”).
    This period, when the Church is not here, will see
    – The Mark of the Beast
    – The Seven Trumpet Judgments
    – The Three Woes
    – The Seven Bowl Judgments
    among other things.

    After these two 3 1/2 year periods comes The Second Coming of Christ to the earth.
    – Christ will set foot on the Mount of Olives (on the east side of Jerusalem)
    – The Mount of Olives will split in half at the touch of Christ’s feet and there will be a great valley from east to west
    – Christ will cross the Kidron Valley and enter Jerusalem through the Eastern Gate, which has been sealed until his return
    – Christ will enter the Temple and reign as King of the Earth for 1000 years (the Millennium)
    – During the Millennium, Satan will be bound. At the end of the 1000 years, “Satan must be loosed for a little season”

    After this “little season”, Satan and all who follow him will be defeated during the Battle of Armageddon and cast into the Lake of Fire.

    Then these present heavens and earth will be destroyed by fire and God will give a New Heaven and New Earth, with the New Jerusalem, where we (Christians) will live for eternity in the Presence of God.

  • Mike

    A preview of the persecution we will face during the tribulation? Who says that this isn’t the tribulation?

    • Rhialto the Marvellous

      The Great Tribulation, as described by Jesus, can not take place until the Antichrist is revealed by standing in the Temple in Israel (not rebuilt yet) and proclaiming himself to be God.
      The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has all the Temple utensils ready to go. They also have a group of trained priests ready to begin Temple worship.

      • Mike

        Wrong. The New Testament says that the temple is now the body if believers in Christ. Jesus Christ is the once for all sacrifice, so, the sacrificial system of Old Testament times is not needed.

        • Rhialto the Marvellous

          Of course it’s not needed. I was speaking of the Temple as a marker of end-time events.

          • Mike

            The marker for end time events occurred in May of 1948 when Israel came back as a nation. Israel received a mortal head wound in 70 A.D. by the Roman Legions under Titus. Israel was not, then came back, As per the book of Revelation. Physical Israel and Spiritual Israel are two different entities on two different sides of the fence.

          • Rhialto the Marvellous

            The Temple is a marker too. The Antichrist can’t stand in the Temple (Matthew 24:15) unless there’s a Temple.

        • Gay Veteran

            However, there is a common bond we share in Christ, namely our submission to and consequent enjoyment of, that you will not understand unless you stop fighting and give into God’s grace and mercy.

            Whenever you are ready to do that, we will welcome you into our family.

      WHAT……………..reincarnate ?

  • PK Hodges

    I am rejoicing to hear Michael saying the same thing the Lord Jesus has had me preaching for the past several years: that we will not be taken out of the world before the great tribulation. Tribulation means “the great persecution.” This was always a false teaching, but with it, almost all of us were fooled. How much more glorious it will be as the ones in this world who do not have hope watch a church who is united in love, and walking by faith, and no longer by sight (the five senses), doing the works of Jesus, and being supernaturally delivered from the curse that is being poured out upon the earth, just like God did for His people in the early days, when they were enslaved in Egypt. Not all of the watching ones will believe, but many will.
    This is what I am waiting and praying for now though: that another big part of the lie the false teachers have taught for so long right alongside the Pretrib Rapture lie will bust wide open.
    I was raised up in October 2012 to open the door for Jesus. When I say “raised up” I mean completely transformed from the inside out, freed from demons, taken out of a death bed and healed of over 30 serious diseases and sicknesses, delivered from addictions. There was nothing man’s medicine could do for me. I was raised up by the Lord Jesus Christ. Now I am here to do His will and not my own, so that many will be freed, healed, transformed, and delivered by the only Saviour big enough to save. I am preaching that the same Jesus that freed and healed in Bible Days is freeing and healing now. I am preaching Prepare the heart. Turn. Repent. Jesus is not coming “someday”. Someday never comes. Someday is always a day away, or a month away, or a year away, or many years away. The church has been lulled into believing later, later, we got time, but we don’t have time. Time is almost up. Jesus is almost here. He said, “I am coming as a thief.” We don’t know the exact day or the time of day, but He has given us many signs. These prophetic signs are coming true on a daily basis now. And here’s another part of the lie (delusion) that’s been covering our eyes: we are not just about to step into the Great Tribulation, someday… We are already here. In fact, we are almost through it, living in those very last pages…It’s back to houses churches, and the exact teachings of Jesus, strong in faith and bonded together in love.

    • John Noyb

      My friend – you need to study the WORD a little more – we are NOT in the Tribulation. Study those events that the Bible describes as taking place DURING the Tribulation – NONE have happened yet. It is good you are zealous for the LORD, but please gain a little more understanding of the Scriptures. Also – please tell me how the Lord catches us away from this earth (Harpazo) and then brings us back to earth at the same time He comes back to rule and reign at the end of the tribulation. The Tribulation is for the nation of Isreal – not for the Church. Do you really think that God is going to brutally BEAT HIS WIFE before bringing her (us) home? Think about it – you have to twist and turn and take scripture out of context to make a post-tribulation rapture work.

      • Guest

        Well said, John! It’s the time of Jacob’s trouble.

      • PK Hodges

        My friend, This is not a debate of opinions. If I was giving you my opinion based on all the traditions and teachings we’ve been led into since the Apostles death, I’d be wrong. I have given you a very brief testimony of what the Lord raised me up to do. You may call it what you like, but the Lord will still be here so soon that His coming will be like that of a thief. Let me ask you some questions instead? Have you not seen the oceans and rivers turning to blood. Some are truly red. The world says, “Turn over and go back to sleep. There’s nothing to see here. This is perfectly natural. It’s called Red Tide.” Yet, we know that as predicted in Revelations, every living thing is dying. That ocean is broken and man cannot fix it. First, as it is written, a third of all the creatures in the sea die. Man does not repent and acknowledge the Most High God, who is the only one to can save, so next up, every living thing is destroyed. We know now that all of the medicines that we have been raised to think or so good and healing are ending up in the water too. Suddenly those fish are are stuffed the antidepressants, the pain relievers, the birth control hormones, and all the rest. Shrimp are committing suicide. Other creatures in the sea are being changed into hermaphrodites. The truth is that the Greek word meaning pharmacies actually stands for “soceries, poisions, potions.” We’re talking witchcraft. Like the book of Daniel predicts, “(witch) craft shall profit in his (this End time kingdom’s) hand. Anything that steals, kills and destroys is not of God. It is a bringer of death and the curse, not life, just like Jesus said in John 10. Jesus is the only one who gives life and He is the only healer in a world who teaches a god of medicine (the art of)…”Go to your doctor and he will give you something for that. It might help…it might make you better…it might, perhaps, maybe…someday, if we experiment enough, we might have a cure for that.” My Jesus is enough for me, and many others whom God is leading me to who are sick and broken and possessed or oppressed by the devil. Jesus heals 100% of the time.
        Have you not seen those sinkholes in the earth? Sinkholes are opening up without warning all over the world. Houses and other buildings are exploding.Worldwide. The world experts say, “Roll over and go back to sleep. There’s nothing unusual here. All that’s built up gas in the gaslines.” But the signs tell us Jesus is almost here. Prepare you heart. Get ready. Turn and repent.

        Have you not seen the extreme weather patterns everywhere? And the destructive winds. The world experts predict in disagreement. One group saying, “The earth is heating up.” The other saying, “No, the earth is cooling down.” The Bible says it’s both. The earth goes from extreme cold to extreme heat, horrible drought, and torrents of rain. The curse is destroying the earth.
        Have you seen the hail on the increase? It is growing in size too. Hail last week just killed some animals in Texas. And I’m sure that is not the first time. Very soon we shall see that hundred pound hail John predicts, because the world, both inside the church and outside the church are being told “Get out of the world or be destroyed with the world.”
        If you haven’t noticed the destructive hail, have you noticed the big chunks of ice that are falling without warning from clear skies, worldwide?
        And this is just to name a few. The Lord Jesus wants His people awake and alert and watching. It is not His will that anyone who is born again be caught unaware when He comes through those clouds, and crying out, “What are you doing here so soon? I wasn’t ready!” To be caught unaware ins to have our spiritual eyes shut. He wants us to say, “Lord Jesus, I’m so glad you’re here. I’m ready and I’m waiting. What took you so long?”
        What’s happening now? That Abyss is opening. (Rev. 9)The world is going cashless. (Rev. 11). And hey, so much more.

      • Scott

        And how come there are still “sheep” left on earth to be gathered and separated from the goats, when the sheep have already been taken in the air? Christ’s return to Mount Olives comes later and is clearly not the same event as the gathering of the saints of this age, which comes before the great tribulation.

    Well said Jennifer. Now that I know Michael is preaching post-trib rapture, it will definately be in the back of my mind as I read any of his future articles.

  • John Noyb

    Michael – there is no amount of preparation you and your wife or anybody else could do that would get you through seven years of the Tribulation. The Bible doesn’t tell us to prepare so we can make it through the Tribulation – it tells us as we see the signs we are seeing in the world today to “look up, for our redemption draws near”. It doesn’t tell us to look for the Anti-Christ, but to look for the return of Jesus Christ. You have to twist and manipulate scripture to make it fit a post- trib rapture because thats the only way you could write a book making that case. His coming is called “Our Blessed Hope”. What is the “Blessed Hope” of looking forward to going through the worst period in the history of mankind? How can His coming “be like a thief in the night” if He comes at the end of the Tribulation. That event’s time is clearly defined into two – 3 1/2 year periods. Why would Jesus BRUTALLY BEAT HIS WIFE TO DEATH before bringing her (us) home? Think about it.

    • Anna Garrison Semanyk

      Thanks for your comments. Very helpful.

  • Gilbert

    The Bible speaks of the “HOPE” of the Lord’s return. Titus 2:13, “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.” As Bible-believing Christians, we have a present hope in the Lord’s return. Jesus promised in John 14:1-3 to come back and get us, to take us to a “PLACE” He is preparing for us in eternity. . . “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” When Jesus returns at the Second Coming, 7 years after the Rapture, Jesus will establish His earthly kingdom from Jerusalem to reign over the entire earth. This further supports the Biblical truth that Jesus is going to come back to get us at the Rapture, take us to the place He is preparing for us, and then we will return with the Lord at the Second Coming. The place which the Lord is preparing for us will eventually be brought down to earth, when the New Jerusalem descends upon the earth. Revelation 21:10, “And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.”

    • John Noyb

      All the above comments well said and it IS time for us to LOOK UP!

  • Gilbert

    The Pretribulation Rapture will precede the 7-year Tribulation Period. The Bible plainly states that no man knows WHEN the Lord will return (Mark 13:32), which means that the Rapture MUST come before the Tribulation Period. The reason is because the Bible plainly states that the Second Coming of Christ will happen 3 1/2 years AFTER The Abomination of Desolation, i.e., when the Antichrist declares himself to be god and demands worship from the masses of the world (Mark 13:14; Daniel 9:27). So it will be KNOWN exactly how much time remains before the Second Coming, once the Antichrist declares himself to be god from the temple in Jerusalem. If you study the King James Bible at face value, you can only conclude a Pretribulation Rapture.

  • Gilbert

    In 1st Thessalonians 4:18, the Bible says to “comfort” one another with these words. Certainly, there would be no comfort knowing that one would have to suffer all the atrocities of the Tribulation Period. It will be a time of woeful torment and misery, unprecedented in human history. Just as God removed Noah and his family before the flood came and the wicked were destroyed, so will He remove the saints from the earth. Just as God removed Lot and his family before Sodom and Gomorrah were utterly destroyed, so will He remove the saints from the earth. God will remove the Church prior to the Tribulation Period.

    • Joan Camara

      Ok, but where are those thousands at, that satan has to behead for not taking the mark? And just a note here….guess who satan is going to use to DO the beheadings?? Here’s a hint: It’s those “convert or die” evil ones.

      • Gilbert

        Don’t forget, the Holy Spirit is still leading people to salvation during the 70th week. These saints are specifically called the “Tribulation Saints” because they have become believers during the tribulation period. The Bible says that these saints are beheaded for their testimony of Christ. They are NOT the church (the Bride of Christ) – the Church Age will have already ended and the Bride is already with her Jewish Bridegroom.

      the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active,
      operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged
      sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.

        Ummm no he is not. At least not in the sense given to any of us by any religion. The bible you love to quote that precious KJV which many claim is the only true book used to include the apocrypha but that was taken out. Wonder why? Christians used to believe in reincarnation but that was removed because of the catholic church.

  • JB

    A Christian should be prepared for his King to return at any moment; that’s the whole point of the rapture being imminent. If you knew when the Master of the house was returning (or an idea that it might come later) than you might not make wise use of what He has entrusted you with. Irrespective of the rapture, you could get hit by a truck tomorrow.

    The point being, how will you be when the Lord finds you (or calls you home)? Will you be found faithful? How are you on the inside (the Lord is concerned about “the inside of the cup”)? To put it another way, who are you when nobody is looking (which isn’t true – God always is – the point being who are you really)? Have you made wise use of what He has entrusted you with (this includes time)? Have you spent time with the Lord at His feet (like being in His Word)? -Or are you pilfering it away on fruitless things (perhaps reading more “spiritual junk food” than His Word, which today we take for granted)? How will He find you?

    25 -30% of muslims believe in sharia and jihad….the minority always chart the course for a culture…..the rest are just passive…..just like in Nazi Germany and remember what happened………

    “…Incredibly, many mainstream news reports in the United States do not even mention that Christians were the target of this attack….”


    hmmmmm, from the Baltimore Sun, 3/28/16 article by Tribune Newspapers, front page, third paragraph:

    “…A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast, which it said was aimed at CHRISTIANS celebrating Easter….”

        100s of Muslims being killed in Saudi Arabia’s war of agression against Yemen.

    That’s awesome Michael. You’re going to be debating with my pastor Joe Schimmel (same side) at the Rapture debate in Colorado Springs on June 17th. I had been reading your articles before ending up at Joe Schimmel’s church (Blessed Hope Chapel). It’s interesting that you two will be at the same debate. God bless you brother. Keep up the good work.

    I hope all in this forum will read and study the scripture in 2 Thessalonians chapters 2, and 4. The time for the return of our Savior, Yeshua, is described and foretold in these two chapters. BTW, the war mentioned is previous to WWIII / Armageddon.

    How best to stop persecution? Kill those who do it.
