There has been a “fear” factor concerning the end time social system that has been prophesied to rise. Because it will be non-Christian, it will make war against the church (Rev. 13:7). Certain doctrines have come forth as a result of fear. One that started with Margaret McDonald of Ireland is called the rapture. Ms. McDonald was often seen to be levitating off the ground, plus there is NO Biblical support for such a theory. However, God does have some things to say about “protection” during this end time, Satanic, system.
After Jesus described events leading up to His Second coming in Luke 21, He made a very eye opening statement. Luke 21:36, “Watch you therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” He said we should live our Christian walk in such a manner as to be “accounted worthy to escape.” This would be protection from the end time events.
The “end time” events do not just consist of the church being persecuted, but also asteroids or meteorites pounding the earth in a near extinction level event.
Jesus said in Rev. 3:10, “Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will KEEP you from (out of contact with – Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary) the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world to try them that dwell upon the earth.” This is referring to a pole shift as described in Isaiah 24:1 – “turn it [the earth] upside down.”
Just before the New World Order, inspired by Satan, becomes reality, Jesus will let His church know where He has prepared a place for them to be protected physically on this earth UNTIL the Seventh and last trump in Revelation 11:15, 18 sounds. At that time, we will receive our new body and be caught up to meet Jesus. Read I Corinthians 15:50-57 and I Thessalonians 4:13-18. It says the LAST trump!!!
At this time, only Jesus the Christ and the Father will know where this “safe haven” will be. Satan will inspire his military arm of the New World Order to try to destroy this place of protection, but Jesus has powerful angels to stop any penetration into this protected area.
Let’s see what the Bible DOES say! Revelation 12:13-17, v. 13 “And when the dragon [Satan, v.9] saw that he was cast out unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child (physical Israel and the church).”
The Messiah was born through the lineage of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob [Israel]; therefore, Satan wants to destroy their existence off the face of the earth. On the day of Pentecost, the church became the spiritual Israel of God because they received the Holy Spirit. Satan wants to destroy them because they have been called to rule with Christ a thousand years (Rev. 20:4; Rev. 1:5-6; Rev. 5:9-10; Dan. 7:18, 22, 27).
V.14, “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
This is a place that is being prepared right now for the protection of the saints during the last 3 ½ years from Satan’s system. The word nourished means to “fatten with food.” The saints will be fed during this entire time period of protection.
V.15, “And the serpent (Satan) cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.”
In Isaiah 59:19, it reveals that a flood can be an army. The New World Order military of the United Nations will be dispatched to put down this seeming rebellion. They will try to capture these rebels and kill or imprison them. The intent will be to place them in concentration camps. But Jesus says NO!!!
V.16, “And the earth helped the woman; and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.”
In the original Greek language, the word “earth” had only two meanings: 1) the whole world which Satan will rule over according to Revelation 13:7; or 2) a region!!! This place of protection will be a small region compared to the whole earth. God will allow an earthquake to stop the ground troops of the military of the New World Order from capturing this region.
V.17, “And the dragon was wroth [enraged] with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which KEEP the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Some Christians will not understand this place of protection, or not believe that it will exist. Satan will send his military to hunt down the remnants (“the remaining ones”). Those that are absent from this place of protection will still be saints of God. They will be keeping the Ten Commandments and believe in Jesus as their personal Savior.
When ancient Israel left Egypt, Moses told the Israelites to “stand still and watch the salvation of the Lord” (Exodus 14:13-14). They were protected from Egypt’s armies as a type of Satan’s armies in the “end time.” Jesus will dispatch His angels to protect those that have been accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come upon the earth (Psalms 91: 1-11).
Remember that He (Jesus) who is IN us is greater than he (Satan) that is in the world. We see world events speeding up since Obama took office. He is socializing America very rapidly, and the States are waking up. Trouble is brewing for America!!! Will we walk with God and be protected? (Amos 3: 3, 7)
