Rapture Done: Recently, RDK caught a brief statement on a TBN broadcast, said by one of its preachers or evangelists. He was offering prophetic explanation to, apparently, a somewhat related question as he included the following, "There is the rapture, of course, which has already happened." He continued the topic without further ado or explanation of what he had said or even a list of all the "missing" people purportedly raptured.
—— Everyone will recall that Sunday teaches the supposed "rapture" as a secret event in which people simply disappear and in which only pastors, preachers and theologians are taken up to be prepared to assist Jesus when He and they return to earth seven (7) years later. Supposedly, they teach the wicked right along with Christ for the next one thousand (1000) years; after which those who still do not repent will be destroyed and earth will be made new. Naturally, there is not one word in the Bible to validate such an outlandish plan; in fact, it is exceedingly contrary to God's Biblically supported plan.
—— Bear in mind, sometime last year we reported Jack Van Impe telling of this secret rapture to occur in either 2006 or 2007, later he changed it to 2010 or 2011 but BEFORE Christ returns in the clouds: ostensibly, all those church leaders will return with Him. Later, Van Impe said, "Well, not all church leaders will be going." Apparently, Van Impe decided provision was needed in the event he was not one of those to disappear. They doubt their own interpretations and rightly so.
—— It is quite interesting that now they are saying the rapture has already occurred: pure blasphemy. Do any of you know of anyone, any godly person who has suddenly and mysteriously gone missing? Of course not! After all, God's Word tells of Christ coming for His sheep, "Every eye shall see . . . the wicked will die at the brightness of His coming." That does not sound like people mysteriously disappearing, disappearances that we cannot explain.
Wedding Parables: RDK began the Extra Oil series, based on Christ's two wedding parables, to encourage Christ's remnant until He arrives; the first being a guest not admitted due to improper dress, proper attire being the full armor of God: which most are missing that piece called Truth, according to Psalm it is God's 12 Commandments.
—— The second parable was about the virgins with their oil lamps and extra oil for their lanterns, in case the groom was delayed; the oil in their lamps meaning they know the Truth and obey it, the extra oil representing being fully prepared for the groom's arrival, whether on time or delayed, sustained by faith and recognizing prophecy as it unfolds.
—— We refresh your minds about the wedding parables to lend clarity to the following concern expressed by some of the remnant as we draw closer to Christ's return expected "no later than mid-October to mid-November 2011." Since we sent out and posted that timeframe, our websites have had many scoffers leave both hateful and/or mocking messages: this is not prepared for them; it is prepared for you, the obedient and faithful remnant of Christ.
—— Doubt, Satan's Tool: Some of you might think I (BonnieQ) have no doubts at all about the Holy Spirit's advanced notice; which did NOT include the specific day and hour. Well, at the time I was given the season and year, I had no doubts. Florida's Sister Tammy, on the other hand, asked me, "What do we do and say if Christ doesn't come at that time? I'm beginning to feel doubts about it, yet I'm determined to have faith in it."
—— The closer we get to the time given, the more I wonder, "Will Christ really come? Or, did I somehow pick that time out of thin air? Did it really come from the Holy Spirit? After all, it has been 2000 years since Jesus was born. Could the calculation of earth's life being 6000 years have been wrong? Maybe it is younger still?"
—— I am not immune to Satan's wiles and his weapon of doubt. What I do know is that, if our Groom "is delayed," Satan will flood our minds with doubt to overflowing and overwhelming. We should see Christ's delay as the last question on our final exam. You know the one; it is usually a trick question, in this case about FAITH, but to miss it could cause us to fail the test because it counts for 60% of our final grade. Forty per cent accuracy is not good enough with our Lord: it must be 100% or nothing.
—— Back when RDK posted the wedding parables' treatise, we discussed what the delay might mean; perhaps, there are a few straggling weeds. What better way to yank them out of the wheat field than to have them flee from among the remnant because they believe we lied, believe we are false prophets and so forth. They were among us "just in case," not that they believed, truly loved and had an abundance of faith in the Father and Christ.
——And, of course, the delay could serve as the final test of our faith— will we stand strong in obedience; still refuse to unite with the beast's mark of Sunday? Will we understand that we are no longer in prophetic time, we are in real time; thus all prophecies have been fulfilled and we await only the reality of Christ coming in the clouds? Look back at the virgins who had to leave to buy more oil for their lanterns: they were gone just long enough to make that purchase, yet they returned to find the Groom had arrived and they were now locked out of the wedding chapel.
—— If those virgins had obeyed they would have brought extra oil with them as instructed. If the Groom were delayed, they would have been prepared to wait and to wait in the faith that says He WILL arrive. They would have known that, to leave, they might miss the Groom. In their case, they failed the faith to obey and lacked faith that He would be on time: for God said, "He will not be late." It cost them the wedding; it cost them heaven; it cost them life everlasting; it cost them the joy of walking and talking with our Savior and King and to dine with Him. When God gives instruction, we best follow them to the letter: failing to do so was what got Israel in trouble with the Father.
—— The closer we get to that glorious day, cast away all doubts; have your extra oil and faith overflowing: it will prevent Satan's stab of doubts and wipe away those he already has put upon us. He WANTS us to be wrong, but that is his problem. After all, if we are wrong, then he has more time to deceive even more people; but that, too, is his problem. He wants us to die with him: again, that is his problem. We do not have to take his problems upon our finite shoulders thus making them our problems. If his problems become our problems, then we are doomed to twice dead.
—— If any of you are feeling doubts and uncertainty, please share them with us via email to unicornhaven.earthlink.net . Sharing our feelings helps to keep us all stronger and lets us know that we do not stand alone; for there is not one emotion that Christ has not also experienced: i.e. just before He died He cried out, "Father, why hast thou forsaken me?" Is that not doubt, the same as we feel in earth's last hours?
—— Jesus knew, intellectually and spiritually, that our Father had not forsaken Him but, during those nine (9) hours of pure torture and agony, it felt as if God had turned away from Him. We have a general date but during these last hours, we wonder if it really will happen and, if it does not, what will others think of us. It does not matter what they think; it DOES matter what God thinks of our belief, obedience, faith and strength during these rough, uncertain times. Remember, it is a test . . . just a test. ACE IT ! ! !
Dearest brothers and sisters, I do not know how much longer I can put out the Extra Oils. The MS tremors have become so bad that it is incredibly difficult to handle the mouse, even using both hands. While I still can type, although with more typos, the mouse is essential to posting the Oils to our websites and to our private email list. Please pray that our Lord still these tremors, His will not ours, that I may continue to lift up and encourage each of you during this exciting year. All of you are such a blessing to me!
—— Revelation 22:12-14, 16, 20 — "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." Blessed are they that do His (God's) Commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city (New Jerusalem) . . . I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the (seven) churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star . . . Surely I come quickly."
—— Harm neither man nor beast, continue to speak God's Truth to the lukewarm and cold, maintain at the deepest level your faith in God's Word and His promises, obey God's Commandments that all will be well with you and blessings many, fear neither man nor what he can do to your flesh— he cannot slay the spirit being whom you are and for whom Christ returns. Rejoice, sing and dance; for our Savior is about to arrive in all His glory with a host of brethren angels who serve the Lord as we do!
Much love and prayers in Christ,
