Anak anak-KU, waktunya terasa larut bagimu dan kau berpikir apakah AKU sungguh akan datang. Biarlah AKU memberikanmu keyakinan kalau BAPA-KU mengetahui waktu-Nya yang sempurna mengenai kapan dimulainya Hari-Nya TUHAN. Ketika goncangan global terjadi, kegelapan akan turun dan membungkus dunia dan masa pembalasan akan tiba untuk seluruh manusia.

Putra-KU Mark, telah menjelaskan sebelumnya kepadamu pada waktu kegelapan besar terjadi, BAPA dan AKU akan mengunjungi setiap jiwa di bumi, ini akan terjadi. Mereka yang memiliki buah roh yang baik di dalam-KU, Tuhan dan Juruselamatmu, selama kau tetap hidup dalam pertobatan dan taat kepada Kehendak-KU, kau akan terhitung sebagai bagian dari Mempelai-KU, jika kau sudah sepenuhnya menyucikan dirimu kepada-KU.

Mereka yang berjalan bersama-KU setengah hati, atau hanya bertobat dan taat setengah hati – kau akan tertinggal. Walaupun sangat sulit bagi-KU untuk meninggalkan umat kudus-KU dari percobaan yang akan menimpa seluruh bumi, ini harus terjadi, ini tidaklah menyenangkan-KU dan BAPA-KU untuk menyatukan mereka yang memilih untuk mengikuti jalan mereka sendiri bersama dengan Mempelai-KU. Ini adalah penghinaan bagi-KU, Raja dan Mempelai Priamu!

Bertobatlah sekarang, selagi masih ada waktu sedikit yang tersisa, hai nak anak Tuhan yang duniawi! Pedang Penghakiman-KU sudah di depan pintu, dan kalian yang tidak memberikan buah roh yang baik dengan pertobatan akan dilemparkan ke dalam kegelapan dengan kesengsaraan besar dimana ada kertakan gigi. Apakah kau akan menunda lagi? Apakah kau masih memiliki satu kaki berpijiak di dunia dan kaki yang lainnya di Kerajaan-KU. Mereka yang ingin masuk ke dalam Kerajaan Allah harus memiliki kedua kakinya dalam Kehendak-KU, atau mereka tidak akan pernah masuk ke dalam perhentian kekal yang telah AKU janjikan, karena seorang tidak bisa mengasihi Tuhan dan mengasihi dunia ini pada waktu yang sama. Bukankah Firman-KU sudah mengatakan ini kepada kalian?

13010604_592678780896928_4894161605757047729_n

Pilihlah hari ini siapa yang akan kau layani. Anak anak-KU, mintalah kepada-KU untuk menyelidiki hatimu di hadapan-KU. Banyak berpikir mereka berada dalam Kerajaan Allah yang sebenarnya mereka sedang ada di luar Kerajaan-KU, mereka tidak mau membayar harga pemuridan. Bertobatlah, anak anak-KU yang bebal dan mendua, bertobatlah! Anugerah kehidupan yang telah diberikan cuma cuma kepadamu, karena kalian tidak bisa menyelamatkan dirimu sendiri dari dosa. AKU memberikan kebenaran ini, tidak ada yang bisa mengaku kepada-KU sebagai Juruselamat mereka tetapi gagal untuk taat sepenuhnya kepada Tuhan dan tetap bisa menyenangkan AKU dan BAPA.

Ingat apa yang terjadi kepada Ananias dan Safira, karena mereka adalah contoh bagimu. Mereka mengaku percaya kepada-KU sebagai Juruselamat, tetapi mereka gagal untuk tunduk kepada-KU sebagai Tuhan dalam hidup mereka, berpikir mereka masih bisa mengejar keserakahan dan berhala sebagai murid-KU. Perhatikan peringatan dalam Firman-KU, mereka yang menabur dengan dosa akan menuai kehancuran bagi mereka sendiri. Mereka yang menabur untuk menyenangkan Roh Tuhan dalam mereka, akan menuai kehidupan kekal dalam roh. Jangan berpikir kau bisa menghina Tuhan, manusia akan menuai apa ditaburkan.

Sekarang kau mengerti pentingnya penyucian hidupmu, kau telah diberikan sedikit lagi waktu untuk sungguh sungguh bertobat dan kembali kepada-KU sepenuhnya. AKU berkata kepadamu, waktu  yang telah diberikan kepadamu adalah hasil dari belas kasihan Allah, karena jika BAPA telah mengirim AKU untuk menyelamatkan Mempelai-KU sekarang, banyak darimu akan pasti tertinggal! Jangan biarkan peringatan-KU jatuh ke telinga yang tuli, karena kemurahan hati-KU dan kesabaran-KU adalah supaya kau sungguh sungguh bertobat di dalam-KU, tetapi janganlah menguji kesabaran-KU!

Pintu bahtera sudah hampir ditutup, dan kesempatan untuk berdiri di sebelah TUHANmu sebelum Hari TUHAN dimulai hanya tinggal sedikit lagi waktunya. Mereka yang masih duduk dalam takhta hidupmu dan memilih keinginanmu yang egois daripada Kehendak Tuhan, akan tertinggal di dunia untuk menghadapi masa kesengsaraan besar. Bagi kalian yang sudah sepenuhnya mentakhtakan AKU dalam hidupmu, kau akan diselamatkan dari hari pencobaan untuk bersama dengan Rajamu – di Kerajaan Surga.

Karena dimana hatimu berada, disanalah rumahmu. Dimana hatimu – di Surga bersama Raja atau terjerat oleh iblis dengan hal hal duniawi? Apa pilihanmu? Jangan berlambat, karena kau harus lekas membereskan kehidupan rohanimu di hadapan TUHAN, karena kampak sudah ada di dasar pohon dan setiap pohon yang tidak berbuah akan dilemparkan ke dalam api masa tribulasi!

Waktu sekarang yang diberikan untuk pertobatan dan ketaatanmu tidak akan berlangsung selamanya. Hari TUHAN mendekat, dan tidak ada yang bisa tahan kecuali mereka yang telah berlutut dan berserah sepenuhnya kepada-KU, yang taat sepenuhnya kepada-KU. AKU, Tuhan Juruselamatmu telah memberikan pesan ini kepadamu, supaya kau memperhatikan apa yang benar dan berkenan di mata Tuhan. Apa yang kau lakukan kepada Pesan-KU adalah pilihanmu. Lekaslah, sebentar lagi sudah tidak ada waktu untuk memilih, karena sudah terlambat bagimu untuk menjadi Mempelai-KU begitu tanda tanda Anak Manusia bermanifestasi di langit.

AKU mengasihimu anak anak-KU dan AKU akan datang segera, jadi bersihkan jubahmu dan sucikan dirimu setiap hari dengan Darah-KU, karena Mempelai-KU akan memakai jubah putih tanpa kerut dan tanpa cacat, dia adalah Mempelai Anak Domba, yang telah disembelih untuk dosa dunia. AKU, Anak Domba Allah, datang kepadamu sekarang sebagai Singa Yehuda, dan semua akan mendengar AKU mengaum dari Sion!
Singa Yehuda

Matius 3:7-12  Tetapi waktu ia melihat banyak orang Farisi dan orang Saduki datang untuk dibaptis, berkatalah ia kepada mereka: “Hai kamu keturunan ular beludak. Siapakah yang mengatakan kepada kamu, bahwa kamu dapat melarikan diri dari murka yang akan datang?8 Jadi hasilkanlah buah yang sesuai dengan pertobatan. 9 Dan janganlah mengira, bahwa kamu dapat berkata dalam hatimu: Abraham adalah bapa kami! Karena aku berkata kepadamu: Allah dapat menjadikan anak-anak bagi Abraham dari batu-batu ini! 10 Kapak sudah tersedia pada akar pohon dan setiap pohon yang tidak menghasilkan buah yang baik, pasti ditebang dan dibuang ke dalam api.

11 Aku membaptis kamu dengan air sebagai tanda pertobatan, tetapi Ia yang datang kemudian dari padaku lebih berkuasa dari padaku dan aku tidak layak melepaskan kasut-Nya. Ia akan membaptiskan kamu dengan Roh Kudus dan dengan api. 12 Alat penampi sudah ditangan-Nya. Ia akan membersihkan tempat pengirikan-Nya dan mengumpulkan gandum-Nya ke dalam lumbung, tetapi debu jerami itu akan dibakar-Nya dalam api yang tidak terpadamkan.”

Lukas 13:6-9

Lalu Yesus mengatakan perumpamaan ini: “Seorang mempunyai pohon ara yang tumbuh di kebun anggurnya, dan ia datang untuk mencari buah pada pohon itu, tetapi ia tidak menemukannya. 7 Lalu ia berkata kepada pengurus kebun anggur itu: Sudah tiga tahun aku datang mencari buah pada pohon ara ini dan aku tidak menemukannya. Tebanglah pohon ini! Untuk apa ia hidup di tanah ini dengan percuma! 8 Jawab orang itu: Tuan, biarkanlah dia tumbuh tahun ini lagi, aku akan mencangkul tanah sekelilingnya dan memberi pupuk kepadanya, 9 mungkin tahun depan ia berbuah; jika tidak, tebanglah dia!”

Yohanes 15:1-8

Akulah pokok anggur yang benar dan Bapa-Kulah pengusahanya. 2 Setiap ranting pada-Ku yang tidak berbuah, dipotong-Nya dan setiap ranting yang berbuah, dibersihkan-Nya, supaya ia lebih banyak berbuah. 3 Kamu memang sudah bersih karena firman yang telah Kukatakan kepadamu. 4 Tinggallah di dalam Aku dan Aku di dalam kamu. Sama seperti ranting tidak dapat berbuah dari dirinya sendiri, kalau ia tidak tinggal pada pokok anggur, demikian juga kamu tidak berbuah, jikalau kamu tidak tinggal di dalam Aku. 5 Akulah pokok anggur dan kamulah ranting-rantingnya. Barangsiapa tinggal di dalam Aku dan Aku di dalam dia, ia berbuah banyak, sebab di luar Aku kamu tidak dapat berbuat apa-apa. 6 Barangsiapa tidak tinggal di dalam Aku, ia dibuang ke luar seperti ranting dan menjadi kering, kemudian dikumpulkan orang dan dicampakkan ke dalam api lalu dibakar. 7 Jikalau kamu tinggal di dalam Aku dan firman-Ku tinggal di dalam kamu, mintalah apa saja yang kamu kehendaki, dan kamu akan menerimanya. 8 Dalam hal inilah Bapa-Ku dipermuliakan, yaitu jika kamu berbuah banyak dan dengan demikian kamu adalah murid-murid-Ku.”

Matius 21:43 Sebab itu, Aku berkata kepadamu, bahwa Kerajaan Allah akan diambil dari padamu dan akan diberikan kepada suatu bangsa yang akan menghasilkan buah Kerajaan itu.

Lukas 6:46  Mengapa kamu berseru kepada-Ku: Tuhan, Tuhan, padahal kamu tidak melakukan apa yang Aku katakan?

Matius 7:21-27  Bukan setiap orang yang berseru kepada-Ku: Tuhan, Tuhan! akan masuk ke dalam Kerajaan Sorga, melainkan dia yang melakukan kehendak Bapa-Ku yang di sorga. 22 Pada hari terakhir banyak orang akan berseru kepada-Ku: Tuhan, Tuhan, bukankah kami bernubuat demi nama-Mu, dan mengusir setan demi nama-Mu, dan mengadakan banyak mujizat demi nama-Mu juga? 23 Pada waktu itulah Aku akan berterus terang kepada mereka dan berkata: Aku tidak pernah mengenal kamu! Enyahlah dari pada-Ku, kamu sekalian pembuat kejahatan!”

 




Are We Producing Good Spiritual Fruit In Christ In Order To Enter The Kingdom Of God?

Dearest saints,

This is a Rhema Word from the Lord Jesus Christ to His saints concerning the need to produce good spiritual fruit in our walk with Him. The Lord’s warning apply to us all, and particularly the lukewarm believers. Please prayerfully discern the message and take it to the Lord in prayer for His personal confirmation to you. I have also included a brief explanatory note at the end of this post to clarify an important part of the message.

God bless you!

(3 July, 2016)

“My children, the hour seems late to many of you, and you wonder if I am ever coming. Let Me assure you that My Father knows the perfect time for the commencement of the Day of the LORD upon the earth, and it will be at just the right time, My saints. Once the massive global shaking of the earth takes place, the great darkness will descend and envelope all life in the world, and the time of reckoning for My saints shall come, as well as for all of mankind.

“My son, Mark, has previously explained to you that it is during the great darkness when My Father and I shall visit every living soul on the earth, and so it will be, My children. Those of you who have produced good spiritual fruit in Me, your Lord and Saviour, as you remain repentant and obedient to My Will for you, shall be counted worthy to be among my blessed Bride, for you have fully consecrated yourself to Me.

“Those of you who have walked with me half-heartedly, or with only partial repentance and obedience- you shall be left behind, My children. As hard as it is for Me to have to leave My beloved saints behind to face the hour of temptation and trial that comes quickly upon the inhabitants of earth, this must be done, for it is not pleasing nor honouring to Me and My Father to include those who still choose to follow their own self-centered will among My consecrated Bride. Indeed, that will be a mockery to Me, your King and coming Bridegroom!

“Repent now, while there is still a little time left, O worldly children of God! The Sword of My Judgement is at the door, and those of you who have not produced good fruit in keeping with your repentance as My disciples shall be cast into the darkness of the great tribulation, where there will be gnashing and grinding of teeth. Will you procrastinate further, My sheep? Will you remain with one foot in the world and one foot in My Kingdom, O lukewarm saints? Those who seek to enter the Kingdom of God must have both feet planted firmly in My Will for them, or they will never enter into the eternal rest I have promised to give onto them, because one cannot love God and love the things of the world at the same time. Has not My Word declared this to you, My loves?

“Make up your minds whom you will serve this day, My children, and ask Me to help you to examine your hearts before Me. Many who think they are in the Kingdom of God are actually lingering outside My Kingdom, for they are not yet willing to pay the high cost of discipleship. Repent, My stubborn and double-minded children, repent! My gift of life has been freely given to you, for none of you can save yourselves from sin, My loves. Yet, know this simple truth, dear saints- no one who professes Me as their Saviour and fails to obey Me fully as their Lord will be pleasing to Me and My Father.

“Remember what happened to Ananias and Sapphira, for they are examples to you, My loves. They professed to believe in Me as their Saviour, but they failed to submit to My Lordship in their lives, thinking that they can still pursue their greed and idolatry as My disciples. Heed the warning in My Word, My children, for those who sow to please the sinful nature will reap destruction upon themselves from the tilling of their carnal desires. Those who sow to please the Spirit of God within them, will reap eternal life from being fruitful in the Spirit. Do not think that you can mock God, beloved saints, for a man will reap what He sows!

“Now you have understood this importance of My sanctification in your life, you have been given a little more time to truly repent and turn to Me completely, My lukewarm saints. Truly, I say to you, this time has been given to you out of God’s mercy, for if My Father had sent Me to rescue My Bride before now, many of you will surely have been left behind! Do not let My warnings fall on deaf ears, My saints, for My kindness and patience with you is meant to lead you to genuine repentance in Me, but do not test my patience, O lukewarm ones!

“The door of the ark is nearly closed, and the opportunity to be in right standing with the LORD your God before the Day of the LORD commences remains for just a little while more, but not much longer, My saints. Those of you who still sit on the throne of your life, and who serve your own selfish desires rather than the Will of God, shall remain in the world to face the coming time of great tribulation. For those of you who have fully enthroned Me in your life, you shall be rescued from the coming hour of trial to be where your King resides- the Heavenly Kingdom of God.

“For where your heart is, there have you made your home. Where is your heart, My children- in Heaven with your King, or is your heart ensnared by the devil in the things of the world? What is your choice, My loves? Tarry no longer, for you need to make haste in getting your spiritual house in order before the LORD your God, because the axe is at the base of the tree and every unfruitful tree will be cut down and thrown into the fires of great tribulation!

“This present window of time for your repentance and obedience will not last forever, My children, for the Day of the LORD is at hand, and none can stand except those who are kneeling in complete submission before Me, and who abide fully in Me. I, the Lord your Saviour, have spoken these Words to you, that you may pay heed to Me and do what is right and pleasing in God’s sight. My children, what you choose to do with My Words is a choice you have to make. Make haste, My loves. Very soon, there will be no time left for you to make that choice, because it will be too late for you to qualify as My Bride once the sign of the Son of Man manifests in the skies of the world!

“I love you, My children, and I am coming very soon, so let your garments be cleansed and sanctified daily by My precious Blood, for My beloved Bride will be dressed in robes of white, without blemish and without spot, for she is the Bride of the Lamb, who was slain for the sins of the world. I, the Lamb of God, come now to you as the Lion of Judah, and all will hear Me roar from Zion!”

~ Lion of Judah, the coming Bridegroom

Matthew 3:7-12 (NKJV)

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, 9 and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. 10 And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

Luke 13:6-9 (NKJV)

6 He also spoke this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 7 Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ 8 But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. 9 And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.’”

John 15:1-8 (NKJV)

1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”

Matthew 21:43 (NASB)

43 “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it.”

Revelation 6:12-17 (NKJV)

12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

Revelation 3:10-13 (NKJV)

10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

Revelation 3:14-22 (NKJV)

14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,

‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’”

1 John 2:15-17 (NKJV)

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Psalm 139:23-24 (NKJV)

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

Luke 14:25-35 (NKJV)

25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them, 26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finishit— 29 lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’? 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. 33 So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.

34 “Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

Luke 6:46 (NKJV)

46 “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?

Matthew 7:21-27 (NKJV)

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

Acts 5:1-11 (NKJV)

But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession.2 And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? 4 While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”

5 Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. 6 And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.

7 Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 And Peter answered her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?”

She said, “Yes, for so much.”

9 Then Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” 10 Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carryingher out, buried her by her husband. 11 So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.

Galatians 6:7-8 (NKJV)

7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

Romans 2:4-8 (NKJV)

4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? 5 But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6 who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: 7 eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; 8 but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath,

Matthew 24:29-31 (NKJV)

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Revelation 19:6-8 (NKJV)

6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! 7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” 8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

Joel 3:14-16 (NKJV)

14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and moon will grow dark,
And the stars will diminish their brightness.
16 The Lord also will roar from Zion,
And utter His voice from Jerusalem;
The heavens and earth will shake;
But the Lord will be a shelter for His people,
And the strength of the children of Israel.

Note:

Many Christians will understandably want Scriptural proof that the Father and the Son will visit every living soul during the coming great darkness upon the earth once the 6th Seal is opened. I wish to tell you that while there is no explicit evidence to state this expressly in the Holy Scriptures, there are very good contextual evidence within Revelation 6:12-17, and other passages of Scriptures to indicate that this will indeed be the case just before the Day of the LORD commences on earth.

Before the 6th Seal is opened (which is marked by the Lord’s prophecy in Matthew 24:29 regarding the specific cosmic signs of the sun turning to darkness and the moon not giving its light), the world that we live in currently comprises a large percentage of people who do not believe in the existence of God (eg. atheists and agnostics). Even among those who do believe in transcended enlightened beings and deities (eg. Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists etc), there is a large percentage who will not believe in the existence of God’s Messiah, ie. the Lamb of God – Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Yet, we see that the opening of the 6th Seal brings about an unprecedented event: an amazing transformation in the hearts and minds of peoples all around the world regarding the true existence of the God of the Bible and of His Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ, such that they will cry out to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (verse 17)

This points to a temporary lifting of the spiritual veil, so that every person on earth is confronted with the reality of God’s existence, and of the truth of His salvation through the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The LORD will visit every living person to offer them another chance to consider His gift of salvation through faith, repentance and obedience in the Gospel of Christ, so that those who receive His offer of redemption from their sin and destruction for the first time in their lives will have the chance to become Guests at the Wedding Feast of the Lamb in Heaven (see Matthew 22:1-14). This is also in line with the LORD’s desire for all to come to repentance and for none to perish (see 2 Peter 3:9).

Indeed, this is the valley of decision that multitudes will have to go through as we approach the Day of the LORD on earth (see Joel 3:14-15). They shall be confronted with the single most important decision in their lives- either to receive the Son of God by faith in Him, or to reject Him and remain under the wrath of God (see John 3:36).

I hope this explanation helps us to understand that relevant portion of the Lord’s Rhema message better. Shalom!

In Christ,
Mark Chen
