“The Trumpet shall Sound” The Day of the Lord is Here! (Part II)

As in the Days of Lot

Jesus said what the Day of the Lord would be.

“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Adam is revealed.”

Luke 17:28-30
Sodom suffers the wrath of God

What was going on in the days of Lot?

“The men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.”

Genesis 13:13

In the Days of Noah

Jesus warned that the latter days at the time of the end, would be as the days of Noah (Matt 24:37). What would those days be like?

God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.  And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”

Genesis 6:12-13

In the days of Noah, he alone was found to be righteous and perfect or blameless. Noah walked with God. He and those who were with him in the Ark were as a remnant and the only ones who remained alive. A similar situation exists here at the end of time. These are times of Tribulation such as the inhabitants of the earth have never seen before. The world is corrupt and filled with violence. There is no truth in it!

In the days of Noah the Flood came and took them all away,

Sodom and Gomorrah

As it was in the Days of Lot

Lot is most well known for escaping from the city of Sodom just before God burned it to the ground with fire. The Apostle Peter wrote in 2 Peter 2:4-6 that Sodom and Gomorrah were turned to ashes to make them an example for those who live ungodly. Jesus recalls this destruction of Sodom in Luke 17:28-29, and says that in the days of Lot they ate, drank, bought, sold, planted and built.

Sodom and Gomorrah are identified as an example of the ungodly throughout the Bible, from Genesis and Deuteronomy to Jude and Revelations. Many think it has something to do with your sex life, but that didn’t make the list given by Jesus in Luke 17. What was the ungodliness in the days of Lot? Is it like that today?

Is God Blessing America?

This past week was the traditional “State of the Union” speech given by the US president. The purpose of the speech is to give an overview of exactly how the US is fairing these days and lay out an agenda for the future. Trump matched past presidents by touting a great economy, the “military might” of the US and sighted his personally perceived achievements. His facts on these issues are clearly from one perspective, his. He mostly ignored what is really going on in the world and issues that affect the majority of Americans. Trump was sure to end the speech with “God Bless America!” So the question is, “Is God blessing America?”

The Federal Reserve System – Part 2

Last year at this time I wrote, the Federal Reserve System – Part 1 citing the 104th anniversary of the Federal Reserve Bank. December 23rd will mark one hundred and five years since the robber barons brought this system into law during the Christmas vacation of the United States Senate. President Woodrow Wilson signed it. Since that time American debt has gone up exponentially!

St. Andrew the Apostle, Patron Saint of Scotland

Home of the Brave, Land of the Free

Before America was, there was Scotland, still part of the United Kingdom of Britain, Scotland and Ireland. These are the brethren of the founding fathers of America, referred to in America’s Declaration of Independence. They claim the Apostle Andrew as their Patron Saint, as they say, he was sent to them first by Christ. Today, November 30, a feast day in his honor is celebrated in Scotland.

Waiting for Rapture? You’re still here!

What is the doctrine of Rapture?

The idea of Rapture is NOT in the Bible! “According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of a “believer” from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” They actually purport that “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind.

Many characters in Roman mythology, including the Roman progenitor, Aeneas, have been lifted up bodily into heaven. He is recognized by them as the god, Jupiter, from whom they got the Black Madonna.  Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.

Apostolic Succession

This article will answer the question of “Apostolic Succession,” what it is, who has claimed it for themselves, and to whom it rightfully belongs.

Jesus warned to watch out for “false prophets/teachers who come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing.” The Book of Revelation states that the “whole world” has been deceived by a certain religious entity who is the “Mother” of them all. Let’s take a closer look at this and see what it all means.
